Budget Rent-A-Car UAE added the latest series of Cadillacs to its fleet to meet the demand for renting and leasing of luxury vehicles, according to a company announcement on March 9.

Budget received the all-new 2013 models of Cadillac XTS and Cadillac ATS from Liberty Automobiles Company.

The 2013 models of Cadillac XTS and Cadillac ATS are equipped with a CUE infotainment system, cameras and ultrasonic sensors to help prevent crashes.

The new Cadillacs are available for daily, weekly and monthly rentals as well as for leasing for a period of one to four years.

“After a healthy movement in 2012, Budget anticipates further robust growth in 2013, particularly considering that the bulk of our daily rental business comes from tourists,” said Budget UAE Senior General Manager Salim Damji. “We plan to add more Cadillacs in the course of the year and expect the luxury segment to grow to 25% of our total fleet.”
