Dacia Duster

Let’s talk about the most popular rental car first, the Dacia Duster. The Duster can comfortably fit up to four people but it is also perfect for two. The 411 liters luggage space provides plenty of room for suitcases and camping supplies. The car is fuel efficient which is another reason it is a traveler's favorite. With Iceland’s gas prices being relatively high compared to other countries, the Duster is a fantastic cost-saving option. 

We recommend this car to those looking to explore the open road. If you are planning on taking Ring Road then this vehicle is for you. Save some money on fuel while having plenty of room for yourself and your things. The average cost of the Dacia Duster is € 63 pr. Day.

Suzuki Jimny

With the Suzuki Jimny being one of the most sought 4X4 vehicles in the entire world, it is no wonder why it may be on our minds. This is the most ideal adventure car when visiting Iceland. If you are planning to hit F-roads to remote trailheads or camp off the beaten path then consider this vehicle.

It is also an elegant vehicle, offering improved handling and traction. It is equipped with a new and more powerful 1500cc engine that can produce 102hp, generating that extra bit of torque when you need it to tame Iceland’s terrain. Do remember that off-roading in Iceland is illegal, but don’t worry there are plenty of hidden locations you can still explore.

This car best fits two people and has a decent amount of luggage space, 85 liters / 377 liters / 830 liters. It is good on gas as well with a fuel range of 500k or a little over 300 miles. The average cost of the Suzuki Jimny is from € 104,00 pr. day.

Now that you know the difference between the vehicles you can decide which one fits your itinerary the best. If you still have questions you can contact us with us and we can help you make the right decision. Either way, you truly cannot go wrong between these two amazing adventure automobiles.
