Our Gold Economy Car Rental Range 17/12/2018
Travelling can be extremely rewarding and refreshing. But the costs can quickly add up and can make your trip seem daunting rather than exciting. We know this really well so we came up with a range that offers excellent comfort and economy on a budget.

Our Gold Economy car rentals range is designed specifically for travellers who want to drive newer cars on the cheap. We are talking here about newly imported Mazda Demio and Nissan Tilda models – both hatch and sedan – with about 35,000 kms on the clock. Some aren’t even run in yet!
And best part of it all is you get to drive these impeccable cars for as low as NZD $28 a day! 

Here are some key information about the cars in this range:

Mazda Demio
A subcompact/supermini that shatters all preconceived notions about its class, Mazda Demio or Mazda2 provides driving pleasure and minimal environmental impact. The third-generation Demio employs lightweight materials and comes in both a sedan and hatch, although we only have the hatch because it’s been more popular. This model won the 2008 World Car of the Year title and was awarded a “Good” rating by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The Demio features a four-speed automatic or shiftless transmission (CVT). Standard features include a digital fuel gauge and stability control, while the updated Japanese models, which are featured in our range, feature:
  • Premium seat upholstery,
  • Black meter panel,
  • Silver instrument panel garnish,
  • Expanded exterior body colours, and
  • Standard trip computer.
Meanwhile, the breakthrough Mazda Demio 1.3-SKYACTIV which was launched in 2011 won the 2011-2012 Car of the Year Japan ‘Special Award’. This model delivers outstanding fuel economy (up to 30.0km/L), a unique i-stop idling stop system and a shiftless transmission (CVT).

Nissan Tiida
Travelling with a group or a family? We recommend the Tiida for you. It’s not as stylish as the Demio but its boxy body makes for a spacious interior, with almost as much space in the front seat as a six-cylinder family car and still lots of legroom in the back seats. Both the sedan and hatch models also offer a rather large boot, and still more headroom and shoulder room for everyone.

In terms of engine performance, it provides more than reasonable transport from one point to another. It has a EPS (Electric Power Steering) system for competent handling. Not to mention, it features impressive noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) suppression. Perfect for when you’re travelling with kids, right?

Other notable features include a 4-speed automatic unit (CVT), and a 1.5L engine.
Both our Demios and Tiidas in the Gold Class are imported from Japan. We have 30 of them in our range, so the chances of booking one for your trip are good. However, we recommend that you book as early as possible since these are a popular option among travellers.
