LOS ANGELES, April 3, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- For the discerning customer seeking car rental in Los Angeles, there's no question that California Rent-A-Car's ever expanding location base makes the best rental car service in the area widely available. Last month's announcement of a new location in Santa Monica VW was such welcome news to customers that California Rent-A-Car has followed it up by substantially improving their supply of Volkswagen's latest models. They're offering loyal VW customers a place to try the newest and best, and giving a sample of the German automaker's quality to those who haven't owned one before.

When you open a rental car location in a dealership, you must consider the needs of brand-loyal consumers. If your Volkswagen Golf or Jetta is in for repairs at the Santa Monica VW dealership, how convenient is it to be able to rent the same model you're used to driving? Better yet, you can try a VW model you've had your eye on. The 2012 Golf might even tempt Jetta owners to try this more aggressively styled hatchback, and consider the move to a smaller car next time they buy. Conversely, Volkswagen fans can try something a little bigger, like the updated Tiguan, VWs compact SUV.

But where California Rent-A-Car really shines this month is in some of the bolder new Volkswagens on the market, like the 2012 Passat. The new Passat is making waves as Car and Driver's car of the year, and for very good reason. The quality you already trust in a Volkswagen has been honed and compressed into an extremely powerful car priced to compete with similar offerings from Toyota and Honda. Those who've been pining for a Passat can try one at California Rent-A-Car. After renting, and getting a small sample, they can just walk over to the dealership and buy one.

Also, the Beetle has a new name, or we should say an old name, since last year they removed "New" from the name, and they're marketing it as just "Beetle." If you haven't yet seen one on the road, the latest models in the Beetle line are styled with more of the classic 1960s look, with the futuristic sheen of the ones that stole our hearts during the last decade.

But California Rent-A-Car is still your Los Angeles luxury car rental company, and their other locations are always expanding their selections as well. Audi, Mercedes and Lexus are still well-represented in the California Rent-A-Car repertoire. Those looking for car rental at LAX are often solely concerned with practicality. With Camry, Corolla, and Passat, California Rent-A-Car has practicality in spades.
