Admittedly, the backseat of a car doesn't seem like a place for romance, unless you're 17, parked at a lookout point. But with the latest innovations devoted to making the rear of the car more comfortable and inviting, why not head back there for a romantic escape for two? (You don't even have to leave the driveway.) Here are five cars with backseats made for love.
11 City / 18 Hwy
This comely coupe is potent, dynamic looking and very, very expensive. Not to mention that AMG means it has a hand-made engine that is signed by the builder. Even if you're not sporting a pair of Pradas, driving the CL63 AMG speaks volumes.
0 City / 0 Hwy
The Mustang just spells trouble ? especially in bright colors. We promise, if you race around in one of these babies, you'll get everything from open shows of appreciation to coveted looks.
17 City / 23 Hwy
The advertisements say that this is not just a pickup truck. Well, we have to counter that. This is a "pick up" truck. BIG TIME. We dare you to drive a brand new Ford F-150 and not have a cool cowboy ask for your number. By the way, we'll take ours in a smashing Golden Bronze.
16 City / 23 Hwy
True, there's that BMW thing. Guys always do a double take. Most notably, this crossover has lots of room, plenty of power and it's AWD. So, when you want to show off that "go anywhere" savoir-faire, the X6 is a great attention grabber.
35 City / 40 Hwy
There's been so much discussion about the Chevy Volt, you know that driving one is sure to turn a lot of heads. Hey, you've got all the bases covered here. The Volt is an electric/gas car that is eco-cool, fuel efficient and fast.
28 City / 35 Hwy
In any form, hardtop or convertible, bigger or smaller, the Mini is a conversation starter. What's not to like? This car is adorable, fun and charming. It's a given ? every chap will want to talk to you when you're driving one.
32 City / 28 Hwy
Yes, we love lots of luxury utility vehicles, but this one has that hybrid component going for it. That alone is sure to drive male admirers with a green conscience. And there's just something about driving a Lexus SUV ? every time I'm in one, I have to reapply my lipstick because I get so many stares.
16 City / 23 Hwy
The Audi A8 sedan is big and luscious looking and it just oozes indulgence. Plus, there's so much uber technology that you are bound to get a guy's attention. Just mention the Bang & Olufsen, 3-D Nav system or the LED lights and you'll have him hooked.
22 City / 34 Hwy
Just the fact that you know enough about cars to drive a Kia Optima with a 274 horsepower direct-injection turbocharged engine (use those stats girls) is big. But throw in the note that this fireball has a mpg of 24/35 and that Kia is a major sponsor of the NBA and that dude will be seeing stars.
Any of these cars would be a great addition to your "inner circle," but, if you're in the market for both a car and a man, why not add a little panache to your wheels?
