Well that depends on where you’d like to go. Downtown Simi Valley, about 16 miles from Van Nuys, CA Airport (VNY), can be difficult to drive around. Make it easy on yourself by renting something small, fuel-efficient, and simple to handle. Take into consideration that Simi Valley is also the gateway to some of the sandy shores around Ventura County. If your journey is more about cruising down highways, you may want something with a bit more trunk space and extra legroom. What about a full-size car or a standard SUV?
