ST. LOUIS, Dec. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- National Car Rental is adding over a dozen new and redesigned 2016 vehicle models to its locations nationwide. Beginning December 2015 and January 2016, National will add these new premium vehicle models to the Emerald Aisle, an exclusive section of the rental car lot where Emerald Club members can bypass the counter and select any vehicle as long as they reserve a mid-sized car.
For the first time, Emerald Club members will be able to choose from new models including the 2016 Fiat 500X crossover and the Volvo V60 Cross Country. Other additions to the fleet include newly redesigned 2016 models such as the Nissan Maxima, Lincoln MKX, Hyundai Tucson and Chevrolet Camaro, which was named 2016 Motor Trend "Car of the Year."
"National offers some of the most exciting vehicles in the automobile industry to our Emerald Club members, providing unsurpassed choice, control and convenience for their frequent travels," said Rob Connors, vice president of brand marketing at National Car Rental. "We are grateful to our multiple automobile manufacturer partners for their collective commitments to providing a premium selection of vehicles for our customers."
In early 2016, an expanded range of both BMW and Audi vehicles will be added to National's "Premier Selection" – a special section of the rental lot where customers can choose to upgrade on the spot from a variety of upscale nameplates. The refreshed 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser will also be available at Premier Selection locations. Consistent with the National brand's commitment to providing speed, choice and control to time-sensitive frequent airport travelers, Premier Selection vehicles are clearly marked so customers can easily identify and upgrade their rental without ever visiting the rental counter.
The introduction of these new vehicles reflects National's ongoing commitment to diversifying its fleet with premium vehicles. More than 350 makes and models are currently available in the car rental fleet of Enterprise Holdings, owner and operator of the National Car Rental, Alamo Rent A Car and Enterprise Rent-A-Car brands.
