Los Angeles features mostly freeways, wider streets, and large parking garages that are great for any type of car. We recommend that you rent an intermediate or full-size car if you’re planning to discover the scenic routes and national parks outside the city. If you want to explore the city center, rent a convertible to fully soak up the LA sunshine. Fortunately, the city’s idyllic climate lends itself to any style of car driven year-round.
