Hyundai Atos

Hire Cars on Kefalonia

The Atos is our car of choice ( maybe because it is one of our cars at home)  The new model with the bigger engine is well capable of managing all the roads on the island - we average 750 kilometres twice ayear.
 
We book through Arguscarhire.com to get best rates, and usually pick up from the ever smiling Akis at Hertz in the Airport.  This May car was supplied by Auto Union/ Express, and was a disaster - (English) rep was extremely late and patronising - and left us a car to run on fumes only to nearest filling station.  Thank heavens we are back with Hertz in September

Hired a Hyundai Atos for 2 weeks in July 2004 and nearly spun it on the road between sovenata and Lassi !!  The roads are pretty bad in greece and this bend is notorius aparently ; the road goes up then down but bears left with negitive camber and all the sand doen't help. My Wife was not impressed! 

 
I found the Atos far to top heavy and flighty
 
I took it back and swapped it for a tiny fiat which was great, handled like a go kart! - It didn't have a/c but the ragtop roof made for it.
 
The Atos seemed like the engine was about to die when the a/c was on.

We hired our Atos from Greekstones in Skala in October 2005.  The car was great, gets up the hills well and takes corners well.  Because of its size, it is also easy to park.

We hired our Atos from Greekstones in Sovoronata, who were first class for information about the island and how to see all we wanted within the time limit we had. We called our atos our " little bowl of custard " we did Fiscardo,Assos,Scala,Lixouri,Aghia Efemia, and this little car performed very well. Kefalonia is a beautiful island and we will return soon

THIS CAR WAS IDEAL FOR ME AS I,M 6FT 5 " YOU MUST MAKE SURE YOU GET AIRCONDITIONING IN YOUR HIRE CAR OR YOU,LL BE SUFFERING AS IT GETS BOILING IN THE CAR IF YOU HAVEN,T. ALTHOUGH NOT THE MOST POWERFUL CAR IT STILL MANAGED TO GET US UP AND ALL THE MOUNTAINS AND DIRT TRACKS.

Small engined car , easily accomodates 4 adults. Copes well with the roads of kefalonia where you can rarely get out of 3rd gear!! WE hired ours from Greekstones and got a great deal for 2 weeks.

We have a very soft spot for this car, "The Milk Float" It was too high on the steering wheel to be relaxed, it had little power for the hills and the gearing was wrong. We could never find a gear that was consistently right for the terrain, lots of searching for the power. Having said that we had enormous fun in it and talk about it often. We see a couple locally at home and the meories come flooding back. This is a car you can never fall asleep in whilst driving, it certainly keeps you busy!

This is one of the most common rental cars on the island. The tall body creates a lot of interior space while the small exterior dimensions make it easy to drive about. It's comfortable and quite decent to drive, although I had an older model which didn't have PAS which made it hard work on the numerous hairpin bends. Newer models may well have this as standard so it's worth asking.
