National Car Rental will be adding several new 2015 models to Emerald Aisle locations nationwide.

The Emerald Club allows loyalty members to bypass the counter and select any vehicle as long as they reserve a mid-sized car, according to National.

One of the new vehicles is the 2015 Volkswagen GTI. Enterprise Holdings — owner and operator of National Car Rental as well as the Alamo Rent A Car and Enterprise Rent-A-Car brands — has partnered with Volkswagen to be the exclusive rental car company to offer the all-new Volkswagen GTI, says the company.

“National focuses on providing new products and technologies that offer unsurpassed choice and control for our Emerald Club members, many of whom are ‘road warriors’ requiring convenience and efficiency every time they travel,” said Rob Connors, National Car Rental’s assistant vice president of brand marketing. “We also continue to remain committed to our automobile manufacturer partners to provide a premium selection of vehicles that meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.”

In addition to the 2015 Volkswagen GTI, other new models include the Chrysler 200, Dodge Challenger, Jeep Cherokee, Mazda6, Mustang Convertible and Lincoln MKC. At select locations, the Hyundai Veloster and Mazda MX-5 Miata will also be available on the Emerald Aisle, says National.
