Buying a car is a rather serious and responsible step, which should be approached very carefully. Especially when it comes to the vehicle that the fair sex will drive. Of course, it is impossible to say that women’s and men’s cars are very different from each other, but at the same time, cars that are designed for ladies should be given maximum attention.
We decided to dedicate today’s rating to cars that girls and women prefer. This is a fairly limited range of cars, but this issue should be approached as thoughtfully and carefully as possible. Often, girls’ companions do this, but the girls themselves can choose the best car for themselves. It is for them that we decided to write our today’s review of the best women’s cars of the year. Here we decided to include the most popular models, but before proceeding to their direct analysis, let’s see what you should pay attention to when purchasing a vehicle.
How to choose the right women’s car?
There are a lot of criteria for choosing a car. One of the most important is the volume of the motor, since it is this element that performs the main function when moving, regardless of the conditions. The engine has a lot of parameters, but the key one is the volume of cylinders. The greater this factor, the greater the volume of fuel will be burned in one cycle, respectively, the energy output of the piston will be much higher.
If the vehicle is purchased for driving in urban environments (especially with small children), then it is best to give preference to products whose engine size is in the range from 0.9 to 1.1 liters. For classic family trips, it is advisable to purchase a car with an engine capacity of approximately 1.8-2.5 liters.
Another important point that in most cases affects the choice of a car is the type of fuel for the engine — modern engines can run on diesel fuel, on classic gasoline or on gas. Diesel fuel at its cost at gas stations will cost a little cheaper, besides, engines running on this fuel are quite durable, unpretentious during operation, and also practically do not break. Unfortunately, speed qualities suffer somewhat because of this.
Gasoline engines are characterized by increased power, capable of accelerating to decent speeds on the track, but at the same time servicing them is much more expensive and more difficult. According to motorists, these engines are optimal for family cars. Motors running on gas fuel are characterized by economical operation, but they are able to carry a large load.
Another factor is the body type, this parameter directly determines how comfortable it will be for passengers in the cabin. One of the most common models is a sedan that can carry 4-5 people with a driver. This car is perfect for family trips. There are still quite a few types of bodies, but for the most part girls prefer the sedan.
When choosing cars to include in our rating, we relied mainly on all the points discussed above, but also took into account some other factors — user reviews and value for money products. We tried to include in the review only models that are not the highest price, so that most of our readers find these products affordable.
For beginner car enthusiasts
A three-door model that has been mass-produced for more than 12 years. The products are characterized by an original appearance, which largely distinguishes it from most small cars like the Matiz. The design is very interesting, antique. The front of the car has four pronounced headlights, which are arranged in pairs. Fog lights can be found on the bumper. Wheel arches look very interesting due to the increased width. Together with the extended sill, they significantly increase the aerodynamic characteristics of this vehicle. In general, the design is designed in such a way that the car looks very interesting and stylish, so it will stand out from the gray mass of other vehicles. Insignificant overall dimensions allow the model to maneuver smartly even in a fairly dense stream, which can usually be found in urban areas.
If we are already talking about overall dimensions, then this model has the following — the car is 3.5 meters long, only 1.6 meters wide, the height is also small — about one and a half meters. The ground clearance is 130 mm, so it is unlikely that you will be able to drive a car off-road or on a dirt road. The interior of the cabin looks very attractive. First of all, the eye falls on the original dashboard, on which you can find a tachometer, speedometer, fuel gauge, temperature gauge. All other controls are at hand. The colors are soft, attractive, thanks to them the developers managed to achieve maximum comfort in the cabin. On the front panel you can find a curious insert imitating polished aluminum.

This vehicle is perfect for the fair sex, who prefer an active lifestyle and prefer to use the car not only as a vehicle. The salon here, if necessary, is transformed, so the volume of the luggage compartment increases depending on the needs of the car owner.

It has an excellent overview — the engineers thought out the location of the mirrors in such a way that not a single dead zone remains, regardless of the fall of the eye. Management is quite comfortable — no extra parts and levers are provided, all elements are nearby, so even a girl with miniature hands can easily reach them while driving without the slightest discomfort.
