If you are renting a car for personal use because you are traveling for pleasure, you will have to ask the rental car company about the cost of an equivalent car.

If you are referring to renting a car because of a covered loss to your car, the insurance company is not required to provide you with an equivalent car.  They are only required to provide you with a rental car for use while your car is being repaired.  This applies to both your insurance company and the insurance company for another party who may have caused an accident and damaged your car.  If you want to rent an equivalent car to what you have been driving, then you will have to pay for the difference in cost between the car being provided by the insurance company and what you choose to rent.
