"Girls don't like boys, girls like cars and money." So goes the Good Charlotte song, at least. Experience driving a lot of new cars suggests Joel and Benji could be on to something, because we've noticed pretty substantial swings in feminine interest depending on what car we're testing at the time. And forget boy favorites like the Mustang, 911, Evo or M3: most women aren't impressed and see their drivers as self-absorbed. Some of the ladies' favorites include:
16 City / 22 Hwy
The Jaguar XK convertible is sexy and sophisticated, so maybe women see it as a reflection of their own ambitions. It doesn't hurt that it looks even more expensive than it is.
28 City / 35 Hwy
The Mini Cooper convertible is irresistibly cute, like a golden retriever puppy named Bailey wearing a jaunty bandana around its neck. Forget Match.com, get one of these and a puppy, and you will get dates.
12 City / 19 Hwy
The Maserati GranTourismo convertible exudes pedigreed wealth and sophistication like a coat of arms. Cue the Joe Walsh song "Life's Been Good" and be prepared to demonstrate that your Maserati will go 185 mph.
11 City / 14 Hwy
The Ford F-150 Raptor drips with macho virility and will attract an entirely different sort than the Leaf. Lots of American girls still get weak in the knees for manly truck-driving men.
11 City / 18 Hwy
The Bentley Mulsanne may cost as much as a house, but the brand's fashionable image indicates that you have excellent taste. If you have the means, we highly recommend picking one up.
19 City / 28 Hwy
The Volvo C70 says, "While I'm driving a sporty convertible to attract your attention, I'm ready to trade for a Volvo wagon and settle down." Some women may find that even more irresistible than the puppy discussed earlier.
