Help-Thrifty Car Rental for 2 adults/4 kids?

I am looking at renting from Thrifty. What car class should I reserve online to make sure we can all fit in the car? The two younger kids can share the middle seatbelt in the backseat and we will probably have 3 large suitcases. Mid size? What type of cars do they have? I checked into Isis, but our kids are 13, 11, 8, 5 and so I would like to go from the airport to car as quickly and easily as possible-which is why I chose Thrifty. I'm not sure I would be up for getting us all to a taxi and then to Isis after leaving Minneapolis at 6:20 am with 4 kids :-) Any help or advice is much appreciated!

'Some folks drop off the driver at Isis and then continue on to their hotel in the shared van.'

That's exactly what I'd do. The van driver will stop wherever you want. And they should, for the price they charge.

'It's only 57 pesos from the airport to Centro...that's not much.'

true - but that's per person and a taxi would take a carload there for 50 pesos. It cost us $9.60 pp for 7 of us to go to our villa behind the Chedraui, which is considered south.

We've walked out and got a taxi no problem when it was just two or three of us but this time we had a bunch, including an 85/yo and a lot of luggage, so that wasn't an option. I think the van monopoly is a scam but we just factor it in.

I might be wrong, but I think the only way out of the Coz airport is on one of the shuttle vans unless you walk out to the road and catch a taxi. They pretty much have a lock on it.

One adult and a couple of kids could taxi to the car rental place, everyone else and the luggage can go in the shuttle to the hotel to start the check-in process.
