Cars have historically always been designed for a purely male audience, but over time the car manufacturers have also started thinking about women. Today on the market, there are different models of machines for girls, which try to meet the diverse needs of women.
The female public seems to especially appreciate compact cars, fully customizable, comfortable to drive, and park. At the same time, SUV s and spacious vehicles are very popular, making it possible to meet the needs of busy working and family life. Below are the best cars for women in the 21st century.
BMW 3 Series.
One of the best cars for elegant women is the new BMW 3 Series, a car with a complete set-up, which includes heated leather seats, automatic transmission, air conditioning, and lots of technology onboard, including lane control and monitoring blind spots.
Not least as an elegant car for women is the Audi Q2, a small SUV characterized by the typical quality of the German brand. In addition to highly respectable performances, which guarantee a smooth and comfortable ride, it offers parking cameras, a high-tech dashboard with advanced infotainment systems, six airbags, and various combinations for the body upholstery.
Career women are increasingly leaning towards high-end cars, vehicles suited to the status symbol achieved, which offer a fair compromise between sporty driving, technology, safety, and comfort. One of the most requested cars is the Nissan Juke, a rather compact medium-sized crossover, capable of offering a wide range of accessories and high safety standards.
This compact crossover is a car born on the street, enjoyable to drive both in the city and especially outside, offering high driving comfort in any condition. Despite the size, the space available is not excessive, but it is possible to travel in four people without too many sacrifices.
The Nissan Juke mounts several latest-generation technological systems, such as the parking assistant, the electronic key, the adjustment of the driving in sport or ecological mode, and two screens for the controls on the dashboard.
As a car for career women, the Range Rover Sport is at the top of the wish list, a high-performance SUV, a sporty, luxurious and imposing vehicle. It is a car specially designed to adapt to long business trips or off-road excursions on weekends. It is equipped with all-wheel drive, large 20-inch wheels, and advanced driver assistance technologies.
In nearly 30 years, many Renault Clio have been sold. Many of these, of course, have swelled the ranks of the cars most loved by women, historically one of the best-selling foreign cars. An LPG version has also recently been introduced, which adds up the savings to the list of reasons to buy it. Design, first of all, but also connectivity and good value for money.
Who finds a Mercedes A-Class finds a friend, a confidant, a collaborator always available to help. The star most loved by women today has one more reason to be appreciated: the MBUX multimedia system.
The infinite practical applications of this innovative technology have already been listed a thousand times, but the distortion of the relationship between man – or rather, woman – and the machine has been truly distorted. You speak, and she answers you, understands your needs, and works hard to satisfy them.
The standard equipment includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, a rear view camera, parking sensors, cruise control, and four airbags, with an innovative onboard computer, a latest-generation stereo system, and voice activation of the telephone controls.
Even Nissan Micra is a classic in the favorite cars by women. Compared to a few years ago, it has lost part of the characteristics that made it decidedly feminine in the imagination of the average motorist.
It is less city car than it used to be, it has a more aggressive and dynamic design (designed to attract a wider audience) and typical equipment of the C segment.
Compared to other cars in this roundup, it knows how to disengage much better even on fast-moving roads and outside a city context. A revolution, therefore, which changes some paradigms that seemed immutable until recently.
The small Italian car is the icon of cars designed especially for the female audience. Over the years, the Lancia Ypsilon has always remained at the top of the rankings of the popularity of women behind the wheel, especially for its glamorous design and constantly in step with the times.
The small size of this city car makes it perfect for urban motorists. It agrees with agility in traffic and is “satisfied” with little space when there is to park.
Elegant but at the same time practical, traditionalist, and technological: Ypsilon has a thousand-faced soul, just like the female universe.
Compared to Ypsilon, the Fiat 500 is not purely a symbol of the female driving imagination, but an icon of the small urban cars of every era. Gentle and rounded shapes, a choice of colors that takes care of the image, and entertainment system with excellent value for money: these are just some strengths that make the fiat 500 one of the cars most purchased by women of all ages.
More or less young girls, fascinated by the history of this four-wheeler or by the appearance of its latest versions. Going back to more practical terrain, one of the undisputed advantages of the Fiat 500 lies in its infinite range of equipment and versions, often in a limited edition, capable of making practically every specimen feel unique.
Fiat 500 X.
From a luster to this part, the Fiat 500 X is practically on a stable basis among the cars with the highest registration rate in Europe for its segment, that of the crossovers. So it’s easy to imagine how the big-size version of the Cinquino is also one of the most purchased SUVs by women.
Women who can undoubtedly appreciate the spaciousness on board, the result of a splendid balance between the size of the bodywork and the “breath” left inside the passenger compartment. Onboard you are comfortable, and in the latest generation (released between 2018 and 2019), you can also indulge in the decor.
In fact, there are seven combinations of fabrics, leathers, and seat finishes, not to mention the colors. To dominate the dashboard of this crossover, there is a 7″ touch screen, with Android Auto and Apple Car Play for the connection to the smartphone, in addition to the classic Bluetooth and navigation technologies.
Citroen C1 is certainly not designed for those who plan big trips, but it is the ideal solution for all people (including women) who need a reliable and comfortable car for the daily struggle with city traffic.
A war that is played with shots of clogged ring roads and overflowing parking lots, where even a few centimetres less of occupied space, makes the difference.
Citroen C3 represents an Upgrade compared to the C1 we have just seen. No longer novice drivers, but young women who begin to need more space on board, but without exaggerating.
The look is decidedly unconventional starting from the Air bump (present from the third generation) “inherited” from the larger C4 Cactus, ending with the colors.
Dozens of color combinations can be combined between the roof and the bodywork, from the most daring to the classic white/red. As an option, in some versions, there is also a front camera, which further underlines the slogan that accompanied the new Citroen C3 on the market.
Despite the fact that men prefer speed, women are increasingly attracted to super cars, to experience the thrill of speed and breathtaking accelerations.
Among the best sports cars for women, there is certainly the Mazda MX-5, a two-seater car for lovers of pure performance, with a center of gravity crushed on the ground and a generous 132S hp engine.
Another trendy small car for women is the Toyota Yaris, now in its third generation, which also includes a full hybrid version in the fleet.
This machine boasts a particularly attractive design, both in the 3-door and in the 5-door versions, very practical for transporting children and traveling with the family. The small size makes it very handy for driving in the city, especially to extricate yourself in the traffic of the center and find parking easily. The trunk has an average capacity, sufficient for everyday needs, while the interior is simple but comfortable.
A model that is better than the others for the female audience cannot exist; every single woman has her character and needs. But taking a look at the models most purchased by the female audience, we can draw a list of cars that, for one reason or another, have become best sellers.
Summary of the trends is in some trends: they are often compact cars, easy to drive in the city, and practical. The design plays a vital role in the choice, as well as the possibility of customizing the vehicle. From city cars to crossovers, from cheaper ones to premium vehicles.
