I know this is mostly for people requesting quotes and whatnot, but I was hoping for this info when I was booking, so I figure others might be interested too.
 
To bring the above full circle - we ended up in the station wagon category at an excellent rate through B.D.Da'ehu (rental was with Thrifty).

We got a Kia C'eed Station, which from my research was a good thing, as it was slightly more roomy than the other options in the category. It fit a Britax convertible rear facing in the middle seat, with boosters in the 2 outer seats. It wasn't particularly tight in the back, but buckling the kids in the boosters was annoying - nothing to do with this particular car, just the nature of 3 kids in the back. The trunk ended up being just big enough, with 2 full size rolling suitcases fitting flat next to each other (the long way) and a bunch of small bags, knapsacks, the stroller and my hatbox all piled on top of them. With the car loaded up, I obviously couldn't see out the rearview mirror, but the tech in the car made up for it (back up cam for parking, aftermarket lane detection, etc).

Bonus points for the guy at the return for Thrifty at 6AM who took one look at us with all the luggage and our little kids and just drove us to departures and dropped us off in the rental. Easily the fastest rental car return I've ever experienced. In retrospect, we probably would've been in serious danger of missing our flight if we would've had to go through the normal lengthy process of inspection, transferring luggage, waiting for shuttle to the terminal, etc.

Bottom line, the station wagon category is a great option if you don't need more than 5 seats, but still need a good amount of trunk space.

thank you for this did you offer him a tip or he just did it on his own? is this a normal practice ?

He just did it, no tip. I can't imagine it's standard practice.
