National Car Rental is adding over a dozen new and redesigned 2016 vehicle models to its locations nationwide.

Beginning December 2015 and January 2016, National will add these new vehicle models to the Emerald Aisle, a section of the rental car lot where Emerald Club members can bypass the counter and select any vehicle as long as they reserve a mid-sized car.

Emerald Club members will be able to choose from new models, including the 2016 Fiat 500X crossover, Volvo V60 Cross Country, Nissan Maxima, Lincoln MKX, Hyundai Tucson and Chevrolet Camaro.

“National offers some of the most exciting vehicles in the automobile industry to our Emerald Club members, providing unsurpassed choice, control and convenience for their frequent travels,” said Rob Connors, National Car Rental’s vice president of brand marketing. “We are grateful to our multiple automobile manufacturer partners for their collective commitments to providing a premium selection of vehicles for our customers.”

In early 2016, an expanded range of both BMW and Audi vehicles will be added to National’s “Premier Selection” – a special section of the rental lot where customers can choose to upgrade on the spot from a variety of upscale nameplates. The 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser will also be available at Premier Selection locations, according to the company.
