The type of vehicle you should hire in Austin depends on your needs and preferences. A standard compact or midsize car is typically sufficient for city driving and exploring the surrounding areas. If you plan to venture into the Texas Hill Country or explore outdoor activities like hiking, you might consider an SUV or crossover for added comfort and space.
