If you're just planning on driving around the city, a small automatic car that is easy to park is the best option. But if you're planning on a road trip to other Belgian cities or even neighboring countries, consider a sedan — particularly if you're traveling with the entire family, as it offers more space and comfort for everyone.
The speed limit in the city is typically 50 kilometers per hour (31 miles per hour), but it may be as low as 12 mph in certain residential areas. The speed limit on open roads is 90 km/h (56 mph) and on highways, it is set at 120 km/h (75 mph). If, for some reason, the speed limit lowers in specific places, traffic signs will always be posted.
