When thinking about getting a car hire in Chennai, it is wise to think about where you may be doing the most driving. For navigating the roads in the city, a compact economy car may be wise, as it will be easier to zip in and out of the traffic and find suitable parking. For heading out of Chennai into the surrounding areas, a standard or intermediate SUV will provide additional comfort for a long-distance trip, while an estate car or passenger van would be ideal for a larger group or if you have a lot of luggage.
