Synonymous with luxury and elegance, the Mercedes range of cars is no doubt high on the wish lists of many drivers.

And there are two models that need to be driven to be believed. Luckily, Thrifty car rental makes that possible. Many of our locations around Australia make it incredibly simple to rent a Mercedes. Or, think of your luxury car hire as an extended Mercedes test drive.


First up, the Mercedes SUV GLE25OD is a full-size wagon ideal for family road trips or an action-packed adventure with friends. But don’t let the term wagon fool you – this is European-quality style we’re talking about.

The appreciation for both design and engineering is evident here, with a list of features that complement the smooth ride you’ll experience behind the wheel. LED headlight, hands-free access, lane-keeping assistance, and a nine-speed automatic gearbox are just some of them. There’s no doubt that the GLE is worth its weight in auto-gold.

Then there’s the Mercedes GLA180 – an ideal car to zip around town if you’re on a business trip or perhaps take that weekend jaunt down the coast. If you’re in Sydney, many of the Thrifty car hire locations will be able to sort you out with one. Likewise, if you’re heading to Melbourne for the upcoming Grand Prix or Melbourne International Comedy Festival, you can book your Mercedes GLA180 at some of the Melbourne car hire locations.

The compact SUV is every bit that trendy urban-style mobile that turns heads at every corner. Internally, the stylish cabin is a delight for both driver and passenger, with climate control air conditioning and cruise control to make a comfortable ride extra comfy.

Both models, as with many vehicles in the Thrifty car hire range, were awarded a 5-star ANCAP safety rating—a safety gold standard in rental cars.

So why not treat yourself and hire a Mercedes-Benz for your next road adventure, business trip or just good old-fashioned getaway?
