I have an upcoming booking next week at JFK for a XCAR for 27 days. I was wondering if they would upgrade me since I have Gold status. Does JFK location have a good selection of Merc or BMW cars since I am not a fan of Volvo? Do I have a better chance of free upgrade if I were to rent from other locations such as Battery Park or LGA? I'd appreciate any info since I haven't rented from Sixt since Covid started. Cheers.

Any recent experience?
I am a National EE and usually loyal to National, but Sixt rate is only about 55% of National - for a BMW X1 (or similar). My experience w/ Sixt is super limited, only 1 rental (at SFO). The car itself was great (BMW 640i cabrio), was renting a standard cabrio, and got double upgrade to the 6-series (normal upgrade was a 3-series), but the reservation process is so bad (took 1 hour plus from arrival to driving a car). With National, I could go in and out in 5 min.

They attempted to get me into an X5 or X6 as they didn't have any 5 series, then they found one and sent me on my way.

rented WFAR at JFK in Nov. Was going to be an X5, they let me upgrade to XFAZ (X7) for $20 more per day. If anyone is curious, looked to be almost entirely BMWs at that location at least for the premium options.

XFAR@JFK

Will pick up at JFK in a couple of days - booking is for XFAR, will it be X5 or have any other cars in this category been seen?

And one additional question: has anybody seen if they have any X5 in their fleet with the multi contour seats instead of the sport seats?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Both the X5 and X6 I had out of battery park had the multi-contour seats

The X5 we received was brand new and had the multi contour seats - also very nicely equipped, just no advanced driving assistance features
