Porsche Cayenne facelift arrives

The latest version of Porsche’s Cayenne has arrived at Avis Prestige and is now ready for rental. Although it hasn't been given a complete styling overhaul, it does benefit from a sharper overall look, particularly up front. The much larger grille is more clearly defined, and is joined by a reshaped bonnet and sculpted wheel arches.

Moving further back, Porsche has clearly tweaked the flanks slightly. The number plate indent, boot catch and two-part taillights have all been smoothed out, resulting in better integration and a cleaner appearance. 

Better engine performance and efficiency too!

On top of these surface changes, the Stuttgart-based manufacturer has set about giving the Cayenne’s engines a similar revamp, so that the entire line-up boasts increased performance and fuel efficiency.

The Range Rover Evoque has arrived!

We have added the new Range Rover Evoque to our wide selection of 4x4's for hire in the UK.

Officially presented at the Geneva Motor Show and after months of anticipation, the Evoque was launched to rave reviews and is one of the most desirable cars to come out of Land Rover since the original Range Rover over 40 years ago.

Whilst not the typical SUV this is the smallest, most efficient, road-focused Range Rover yet and is right at the premium end of the compact 4x4 market.

Our 5 door models have a taller windscreen than the 2 door Coupe with an excellent driving position which is elevated for perfect visibility. With an extra 1.2 inches of headroom, the rear cabin is respectable enough for taller adults. The boot is big enough for a couple of medium-sized suitcases, however with the rear seats forward you create 1350 litres of volume.

The cabin features a 12-channel, 11-speaker sound system, driver and passenger airbags, knee airbags, side curtain airbags and the braking system includes Corner Brake Control and Electronic Brake Force Distribution. There is also rear-mounted camera that displays the view from behind onto the on-board monitor when the car is in reverse gear.

This Evoque is part of the Avis Prestige 4x4 SUV range available for delivery from London, Heathrow and Manchester. Drive this car anywhere and heads will turn!

Land Rover isn’t resting on its laurels and has a continued to refine the model’s winning blend of luxury and refinement which is why the Discovery may well be the ultimate all-rounder. Like all Land Rover models, you get a feeling of safety from driving a large SUV and the Discovery backs this up with a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating and a host of airbags as standard along with electronic brakeforce distribution.

As seen on BBC Breakfast

As seen on BBC Breakfast

New research from Avis reveals a surge in posh motor hires as Brits vie to ‘Keep up with the Joneses’ The trend doesn’t stop at cars – we’re keeping up appearances with handbags, designer clothes and even speed boats... 

Occasions Brits look to upgrade to a luxury vehicle include:

  • Attending a friend’s wedding (37%)
  • Going on a date (29%)
  • Attending a school reunion (28%)
  • Going for a job interview (26%)
  • Attending a party with an ‘ex’ on the guest list (19%)
  • Meeting the in-laws (14%) 

Over a third (35%) admit the reason for hiring a luxurious car would be to give the impression they are doing well for themselves, to stand out from the crowd (18%) and to be taken more seriously (14%). Brits also agree that appearing to lead a lavish lifestyle gives a better first impression (29%), means people are nicer to you (27%) and assume you earn more money (27%).

Dr. Peter Collett, psychologist and author of Driving Passion: The Psychology of the Car comments: “When people hire a car, one of their concerns is what impact the car they’ve selected is likely to have on people they encounter. For example driving a BMW 5 Series gives others the impression you’re totally in control, so it’s the surest way to turbo-charge your image and polish up your reputation! While racy movies have lent enormous cachet to the Audi brand by depicting futuristic models performing super-automotive feats. Drivers of this car can expect to give the impression they are daring and more willing to take risks.”

New Arrival - 2010 Jaguar XJ

New Arrival - 2010 Jaguar XJ

The new Jaguar XJ had been added to our UK hire fleet.  The original Jaguar XJ was a car that epitomised luxury and comfort and those credentials remain unchanged with the new 2010 model. This is Jaguar's flagship saloon, and the first launch under new owners Tata Motors.

The previous model couldn't help but look dated and the new XJ has undergone a radical change from the original body style, which was little changed for 40 years.

Whilst the new XJ resembles the XF, it's fabulous to look at and at the forefront of technology with many functions controlled by a touch-screen allowing easy programming of the sat-nav system.

The interior exudes quality with the leather and wood finish and the impressive Bowers & Wilkins premium sound system which pipes your desired tunes through an array of speakers, including three in each door, two on the dashboard, four surround speakers on the parcel shelf, and two subwoofers!

This car is part of the Avis Prestige executive saloon range available for delivery from London, Heathrow and Manchester.

New Arrival - BMW 3 Series 330d M Sport

If it's driving thrills you're after then the BMW 330d M Sport is the ideal choice. Read any review and you will find masses of praise of this all-consuming executive saloon. Let's make no bones about it, as benchmarks go few are as enduring as the BMW 3-Series.

This compact luxury car rates highly for looks, build quality, luxuriousness and handling. The M Sport trim enhances the car's stance with 18in alloy wheels, larger bumpers and upgraded chassis settings whilst the six-cylinder diesel unit provides power wherever and whenever you want it.

Other features include BMW's iDrive, which uses a console knob to control entertainment and satellite navigation. Standard safety equipment includes antilock disc brakes, front and side airbags and the stability control system integrates several features designed to improve braking performance.

The BMW 330d M Sport is part of the Avis Prestige executive saloon range available for delivery from London, Heathrow and Manchester.

New - 2010 Audi TTS Roadster

New - 2010 Audi TTS Roadster

After only two years of being in production, the Audi TTS instantly stands out as the flagship model and is yours to experience with Avis Prestige.

The 2010 TTS is better then ever with a 265 HP version of the 2.0 TFSI four cylinder engine. This additional power along with the "Quattro" all wheel drive helps the TTS to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.9 seconds and that puts the TTS firmly in the sports car bracket!.

The TTS comes equipped with the Audi magnetic ride adaptive damping system. This allows the driver to choose between two settings: "Normal" mode is designed for a relaxing drive, whereas the "Sport" mode lowers the body by 10 millimetres to deliver firmness for more responsive handling. The 18-inch aluminium wheels are a key feature of the exterior design, as are the headlights, which comprise bi-xenon units with LED daytime running lights.

The cabin exudes quality and the all important electrically operated fast folding roof lets you see the sky in just 12 seconds. This is a car just waiting to be enjoyed!

New Arrival - Mercedes E Class Cabriolet

New Arrival - Mercedes E Class Cabriolet

We have added the new Mercedes E Class Cabriolet to our UK hire fleet. Unveiled at the 2010 Detroit Auto show, the Mercedes E Class Cabriolet is the fourth addition to the range and as with the new E Class Coupe replaces the old CLK. This new convertible boasts a folding fabric hood that can be opened or closed in 20 seconds at speeds of up to 25mph!

Top of the feature list on the E Class Cabriolet is a new AIRCAP system which is a wind deflector that sits at the top of the windscreen to divert the airflow 20cm higher, leaving rear seat passengers un-buffeted by wind when the roof is down. The E Class Cabriolet also boasts a modified AIRSCARF function which means that warm air can be directed up or down by a total of 36-degress to keep you warm on a cold day with the top down and to allow all-season, open-topped motoring.

This car is part of the Avis Prestige convertible/cabriolet range available for delivery from London, Heathrow and Manchester.

New Arrival - Mercedes E Class Coupe

New Arrival - Mercedes E Class Coupe

The brand new 2010 Mercedes E-Class Coupe is the perfect replacement for the CLK. This very stylish Coupe has the classic Mercedes roofline, which, like that of the CLK, remains pillar-less. This not only makes the car look good but also allows excellent all-round vision. Rear wheel drive handling characteristics allow for precise steering with good feedback and the five speed automatic gearbox changes with silken smoothness.

The E Class Coupe driver can relax in the perfect driving position all day without tiring and will not be distracted by any rattles or squeaks in the highly refined and well-built cabin. There's plenty of space in the front and two adults can sit comfortably in the back. Luggage space is five cubic feet larger than the CLK so you have plenty of room for those overnight bags and golf clubs! This car is part of the Avis Prestige Coupe range available for delivery from London, Heathrow and Manchester.

New Arrival - Audi A5 3.0 TDi Cabriolet S-Line

Avis Prestige has added the all-new Audi A5 3.0 TDi Cabriolet S-Line to its UK hire fleet. This is Audi's replacement for the A4 Cabriolet and combines four seat saloon car practicalities with the sporty feeling of a convertible for those sunny days.

Audi really does pay attention to detail and the A5 Cabriolet is no exception, employing an Acoustic Fabric Hood that can fold and unfold in 15 seconds and which is said to make the cabin almost as quiet as its coupe counterpart.

This great looking A5 is part of the Avis Prestige convertible/cabriolet range available for delivery from London, Heathrow and Manchester.

New arrival - Audi A5 2.7 Sportback

Avis Prestige has added the all-new Audi A5 2.7 Sportback to its UK hire fleet. The Sportback is one of the latest models to join Audi's impressive line-up and combines coupe styling and saloon ambiance with estate versatility.

Whilst this 4 door hatchback has no direct rival, some say that it looks like a cross between an A5 coupe and an A4 saloon. It manages to retain some of the coupes sporty looks and has similar legroom and roughly the same amount of boot space as an A4. The Audi A5 Sportback is yours to experience with Avis Prestige.

The Audi A5 Sportback is part of the Avis Prestige luxury Executive range available for delivery from London, Heathrow and Manchester.
