For many people, buying a car is a reflection of their personality. While some people emphasize practicality, others want a car that gets them noticed whenever they drive down the highway. Because of the seemingly endless variety of expectations from buyers, auto manufacturers are constantly trying to come up with vehicles that will catch the eye of a buyer as soon as they step onto the dealer’s lot. If you want a vehicle that will make others do a double take, here are some creative cars for your consideration.
If you like boxy crossovers that are quite practical and functional, then the Kia Soul may indeed be your auto soulmate. A unique shape, along with cargo space that’s equivalent to many smaller SUVs, make the Soul an attractive option for many buyers. All this, combined with a base price of just over $16,000, definitely make the Soul a favorite of those who want a creative car at an affordable price.
If you want to drive an iconic piece of automotive history, then get behind the wheel of a Mini Cooper. The design, which is more than 60 years old, is aging like fine wine. Known for its compact style and excellent handling, the Mini Cooper is popular with people of all ages, from first-time buyers to retirees who want to recapture their youth. And now that it comes with such features as Bluetooth and collision avoidance safety systems, this vehicle is gaining popularity year after year.
On the other hand, if you are wanting a vehicle that will not only give you a comfortable commute to work, but also be tough enough to handle your off-road activity each weekend, the Jeep Renegade is well worth your consideration. The best-selling subcompact SUV in the United States, the Renegade has a quirky look all its own. Yet, it’s always best to never judge a vehicle by its outside appearance. When drivers get behind the wheel, they quickly discover an SUV that looks cool on the highway or winding its way up a muddy mountain road. Available with an automatic transmission or a six-speed manual, its base price is slightly under $21,000.
Always a head-turner when going down the road, the VW Beetle has been one of the biggest success stories in automotive manufacturing history. Still a top seller today, the Beetle has of course been upgraded a bit from its heyday in the 1960s. A more aerodynamic body, coupled with today’s safety technology and reputation for durability, make the Beetle popular with many female drivers, as well as those drivers who simply like to get noticed on the road.
Whether you choose one of these vehicles or go your own way for another one that catches your fancy, there is little doubt today’s modern drivers want not only vehicles that are safe, but also provide them with style and uniqueness. By doing so, you’re sure to be the envy of everyone else on the highway.
