Rent a 4x4 in Reykjavik
4x4 rental in Iceland could be the difference between getting to your destination or being stranded in poor weather conditions. Whilst it's common place to drive in snow and wintry conditions in Reykjavik and all cars will have mandatory winter tyres, not all rentals will be 4x4. When it comes to driving in snow and ice, the benefits of 4x4 rental in Reykjavik are clear, however it's not only 4 driven wheels that will make your journey safer. All rentals will be fitted with the legally required tyres (M+S) to offer maximum mechanical grip between tyre and road surface. A major benefit of 4x4 rentals in Reykjavik is the extra ground clearance as one of the main reason that cars are unable to gain traction is heavy snow is due to the car being 'beached' in the underlying snow. This reduces the weight of the vahicle over it's tyres offering less grip / traction and this is what can cause vehicles to become stranded. Renting a 4x4 in Reykjavik is the safest way to travel around Iceland.
SUV Rental Reykjavik
Whilst 4x4 rental is considered the safest choice, it may not always be entirely required, depending on your travel plans in Iceland, SUV rental in Reykjavik may be sufficient. After all, Iceland isn't home to exclusively 4x4's, regular cars are driven by most in the cities, so if it's a city trip then an SUV might make a perfect choice. You'll benefit from the same extra ground clearance and higher driving position just without the 2 extra driven wheels, however for urban driving that's unlikely to cause you a problem and if it did, help is rarely far away.
