10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (2022)

There are many differences between men and women, but perhaps one that sticks out is how they buy cars and what they actually know about them. Understanding these differences and the buying processes of both sexes can help in understanding just what each looks for, and it's also easier to classify cars into groups based on what would attract men and women. The same goes for manufacturers, not just sellers.

Buying a car and owning one is more like a rite of passage in life as soon as one graduates and starts earning some income, but what is it that makes men go for cars different from what women choose? Granted, there are ladies who want what the guys drive—but that's a smaller percentage—and there are guys who find some ladies' cars fun to drive, which could be any guy really, even though they wouldn't necessarily go to a dealership and pick the same car. Men tend to look at details like engine size, transmission, drivetrain, and suspension, while women may go for space, aesthetics, affordability, reliability, and safety.

But if we're looking at millennial car owners and/or buyers, these choices may be mixed because they're changing the game when it comes to picking out what they want in a car. Either way, there's just that weird look guys get when they're driving a car that's labeled 'for women,' and there are cars men drive that are actually male-oriented, but they leave a lot to be desired!

Here are 20 girly cars that are fun to drive (both for men and women), and the cars men drive that just stink!

20 Girly Car, Fun To Drive: Fiat 500

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (1)

The Fiat 500 is a cool, little European car with few things to write home about, including a capacity of four seats with a rear only suited for children. With a premium cargo space, the owner would always have to keep packing light for better accommodation. The car’s interior doesn't have much to offer and looks cheap, and US News adds that its four-cylinder engine isn't that powerful and can manage to produce only 101 horsepower. One good thing about this car is the handling, which offers an excellent navigation in busy streets. The Abarth version of the car helps in boosting the turbocharged engine and great driving dynamics. It may be a ladies' car, but it's still a fun drive around the town.

19 Girly Car, Fun To Drive: Mazda Miata

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (2)

Despite the limited leg room in this car, it still offers an entertaining driving experience. Miata, US News says, has one of the least powerful engines in its class but is ideal for its small size and light weight.

Similarly, it has top-notch handling, which allows for a great ride, and its interior has supportive seats and many soft-touch materials.

Despite the fact that Mazda’s four-cylinder engine produces only 155 horsepower, it's enough to propel Miata’s small size. Other optional features it comes with include a quick-shifting, six-speed manual transmission and a standard six-speed automatic with a paddle shifter—not bad for driving around in the summer.

18 Girly Car, Fun To Drive: Chrysler PT Cruiser

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (3)

When a man drives this car, he'll probably be asked if he had borrowed his girlfriend's car. This car is definitely a ladies' car, what with its small body size and the rear seats that look like they're made for kids due to its small leg room. The Cruiser's reliability, according to Samarins, has been questioned along with its fuel economy, its low front end that scrapes easily, plus the non-turbo models that lose their energy quite fast. On the flip side, though, the Chrysler PT Cruiser has some positive qualities which include affordability, adequate cargo space, and versatility. And it's easy to customize and fun to just drive around.

17 Girly Car, Fun To Drive: GEO Tracker

From the design alone, the Geo/Chevy Tracker shows that it's not a guy’s ride but looks more ideal as a car for outdoor functions and fun withits feminine kind of dashboard. It shares the same qualities as the Suzuki Sidekickand can go to various placesthatrequire the off-roading abilities that the car offers.

The Tracker has a fabric soft top, which is quite resistant to debris, so you need not worry about dust.

Though it isn't good enough for urban operation since its 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine is underpowered when driven on highways, and the ride is also jarring, says Edmunds. The vehicle's tall body with a high center of gravity creates an unsettling degree of body roll during turns. However, the interior has comfortable bucket seats for the front passenger, a sound system, descent controls, and a basic instrument panel. This should be a fun drive if you're out for adventure.

16 Girly Car, Fun To Drive: Pontiac Sunfire Convertible

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (5)

The Pontiac Sunfire Convertible is small-sized and seems to have been designed for either ladies or young men like those in college who are just starting out with their first car. Despite its size, the convertible comes with comfort and safety features such as dual airbags and ABS, 4-wheel power brakes, which guarantee security in the car, Cargurus says, and an AM/FM audio system that keeps those on board entertained. Other features include power steering, a rear spoiler, daylight running lights, steering wheel tilt adjustment, and front bucket seats. Like the Miata, this is a cool car to drive around to enjoy the breeze and the sunset, but it's definitely not for keeps.

15 Girl Car, Fun To Drive:Honda Fit

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (6)

The Honda Fit is known to be a small-sized vehicle but has a spacious interior and allows for large cargo carriage. It seems like more of a girl's car than it is a guy's, but hey, if Mark Zuckerberg likes it, then it must be a cool car for guys, too. Motortrend describes the size of this car as one that allows it to squeeze in a small parking space, hence making it good for urban driving.

This caris definitely easy and fun to drive with the availability of nimble handling and manual transmission.

Plus, it's a great choice for women who don’t love complex rides. Apart from the features mentioned earlier, the Fit also has a 109 hp 1.5-liter I-4 engine, navigation, heated front seats, and leather upholstery.

14 Girly Car, Fun To Drive: Toyota Yaris

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (7)

The Toyota Yaris was made for beginners and those who don’t want to hit the road on big machines. The car is powered by a 106 hp 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated with an outdated standard four-speed automatic transmission. Inside the vehicle is a smooth gear changer that improves shift quality, CarandDriver notes. Compared to its competitors such as the Ford Fiesta, the Hyundai Accent, and the Kia Rio, which are more powerful, the Yaris is quite slow with an acceleration rate of 10.2 seconds for the 0-60 mph sprint. Yaris is also quite chaotic when it reaches its top speed of 108 mph since it's accompanied by noise despite the company trying to curb it.

13 Girly Car, Fun To Drive:Alfa Romeo Giulia

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (8)

This is a world-class sports sedan produced by Alfa Romeo, who, from the beginning, focused on theproduction of race cars but now are back with good things for their customers. This car does have a girly look to it though, and it's even named with a girl's name! The Giulia is good for both men and women, and Autoinsider lists its features including good cornering owing to its level of control and stability, an 8-speed auto transmission, safety, and a wide palette of engines. They add that of all cars, this particular one has passed and scored highest on crash-test safety, plus it has a gorgeous exterior and interior. It was even declared the most beautiful car in 2016—how about that!

12 Girly Car, Fun To Drive: Toyota Prius Three Touring

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (9)

The Toyota Prius is generally a ladies' car, but that's if you focus only on its gorgeous exteriorbecause there are other specs that the car has that make it fun to drive for everyone, not just the girls. For women, the large trunk would be a great feature, but for guys, that's not all they look at; in fact, it may not be a priority as such. However, it's been improved for later models, as CarandDriver noted, though its comfort wasn’t good enough to allow men who are commonly known for driving fast to drive on roads with potholes, as it was noisy. The car comes up from 0 to 60 mph in 10.5 seconds and is powered by 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine mated to two electric motors and a complex planetary gear set to produce a joint 121 horsepower.

11 Girly Car, Fun To Drive: Honda Odyssey

The Honda Odyssey is one of the best car models and is usually thought to be more ideal for womenthan it is for men. Like most minivans, this one provides adequate cargo space of about 39 cubic feet, which can also be extended by folding the last-row back seat.

It's comfortable not just for the driver but also for the passengers.

Features listed by US News, include park assist, blind-spot monitoring, pre-collision braking, lane-keep assist, magic slide second-row seats, heated front seats, and an 8-inch touchscreen. It's a really cool minivan to drive around, and at least,it's not that feminine looking.

10 Men Drive That Stinks: Nissan Juke

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (11)

The Nissan Juke came as a godsend to women who were looking for a smaller compact SUV with a stylish design yet was still packed with modern features. This Nissan is quite economical, Cars.com says, having a base price of around $20,250 with a fuel consumption of about 26-29 mpg combined. It offers an energetic driving spirit, having been fitted with a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 188 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. Juke ensures that those on board receive the utmost safety with the safety features in it, which include six standard airbags, a traction control system, an anti-lock braking system, and active head restraints. Within the market, Nissan Juke competes with the Fiat 500x, the Mazda CX-3 and the Jeep Compass—so not exactly a car men should be clamouring for.

9 Men Drive That Stinks: 2016 BMW 3 Series

The BMW 3 series is a bigger, sexier and powerful sedan—an ideal car—but not for guys. Apart from these three qualities, this car is touted as one of the best luxury cars that offer a lot of options to its fans and more so with ladies who love customizing their cars.

Men love driving a BMW, but may prefer to opt for the M3 or perhaps a 5 series.

The German machine, according to Autobytel, comes in three models, which include the Sedan, the Gran Turismo hatchback, and the Wagon body style, and it's powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque. The energy is transmitted to the rear wheel through the 8-speed automatic transmission.

8 Men Drive That Stinks: Mazda CX-7

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (13)

This midsized SUV has great performance and styling, though it can only carry a maximum of five passengers, but it can work best for family use. It came only with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that unfortunately wasn’t fuel-efficient, which led to its recall. Nevertheless, the Mazda CX-7 has an athletic demeanour and also incorporates most features that make crossovers popular, such as good handling, adequate cargo capacity, and all-wheel drive. Men love a good SUV, but they can do much better than the CX7. This vehicle, Motortrend says, features a stylish interior with comfortable seats and an audio system to provide some entertainment. The CX-7 is a car that'll definitely work well for women who aren't concerned about speed since it's quite slow, so guys... this isn't yours either—keep off!

7 Men Drive That Stinks: 2016 Tesla Model S

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (14)

The Tesla Model S is not just a smart car but also very sexy, so it definitely would be attractive to the ladies. Despite the fact that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hasn’t produced the score for this car's the safety, it's practically guaranteed to score well since its predecessors have scored five stars. The Model S, Autobytel reports, is considered to be an electric luxury car and has been fitted with driver-assistance technology.

While it is fuel efficient, guys who like the sound of a revving engine may feel strange driving this car.

It's also very efficient and can travel up to 270 miles on a full charge with incredible aerodynamics, ludicrous performance, and uncompromising aesthetics in the interior. Plus, it has the best-in-class storage, seating up to five adults and two children.

6 Men Drive That Stinks: 1964-1966 Ford Mustang

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (15)

This is one of the first generations of the American muscle car, the Ford Mustang, and it comes in different engine options ranging from a 2.8-liter Thrift power I6 to the 4.7-liter Windsor HiPo V8 engine. According to Global Cars Brands, this car was phenomenal in its time and was actually the bestselling Mustang of all time, but today, it just isn't among the best—there are many alternatives for guys that can do so much more with. Granted, it has a rich heritage, and a classic hardly dies off like an old habit. Otherwise, if it's for the ladies, it would be ideal, owing to its huge trunk, because women love to pack a lot wherever they go. The car also has three alternatives in terms of design: the hardtop, the convertible, and the sports roof.

5 Men Drive That Stinks: 1967-1969 Chevrolet Camaro

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (16)

In terms of its design and performance, the Chevrolet Camaro came with one objective in the market: to provide one classic sporty and luxurious ride. The Camaro has been on the scene for agesand is good for ladies who love speed—but not for the guys despite the vehicle being a muscle car and astrong competitor to Ford Mustang.

Global Cars Brands also says it's considered unsafe at any speed, which makes it stink because what's a car if it could fly off the road?

Camaro came in three different designs: standard sport coupe, rubber melting super sport and the track-ready Z/28. It’s nosurprise that this is one of Chevrolet'sbestselling cars, as it had some awesome features. It was powered by various engines ranging from a 4.9-liter to a 7.0-liter V8. Other features in the car include dual exhaust, bucket seats, carpeting, hidden headlights, and an improved Astro-ventilation system.

4 Men Drive That Stinks: 1964 Aston Martin DB5

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (17)

Most car enthusiasts and movie lovers will know this classic car from James Bond movies. The Aston Martin DB5 is a famous spy’s vehicle, and that's probably the reason why even Bond himself fell in love with it. The DB5 is described by Global Car Brands as a grand tourer that came as either a coupe or a convertible. The car stole the hearts of many with its excellent performance, what with its 3,995 cc inline-6 engine that produced 282 horsepower. It's stylish and quick, but not up to par with most cars men could get for this kind of money. The car’s sleek and stylish design on the interior provides it with synonymous luxury. One crazy factabout this car is that it was only made from 1963 to 1965, and only 1,059 of them were produced, but it stillis one of the world's most famous carsto this today. Either way, it's not a guy's best choice for a ride.

3 Men Drive That Stinks: 2016 Acura ILX

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (18)

On many occasions, this car has been described as an upgraded Honda Civic, Autobytel says, since it shares most of its mechanicals with the Civic. Despite its sleek design and roomy interior, this isn't the car for men—it's more of a ladies' car, butat least it's considered safe, reliable, and pretty affordable fora high-end smaller car. The Acura ILX would also be considered an easy-to-drive vehicle as it only comes with a standard 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission and torque converter. This kind of transmission allows for lightning-fast shifting and the smooth response of the car while taking control of the engine on curves or hilly roads. It does however lack a certain toughness in its image.

2 Men Drive That Stinks: 2016 Lexus ES 350

10 Girly Cars That Are Actually Fun To Drive (And 10 Cars Men Drive That Stink) (19)

If it comes to car reliability, then the 2016 Lexus ES 350 would definitely be an option, especially for the ladies, becauseunlike guys,they're about safety and aesthetics before performance. Autobytel says this car passed very well in crash tests, scoring 5 stars for the overall rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Top Safety Pick plus honors for highway safety. It would be definitely an option for anyone who likes to drive in a safe and comfortable mid-sized sedan. Under the hood of the car is a strong 3.5-liter V-6 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission, and it comes with trapezoid exhaust tips, flashy LED headlamps,andan interior that's airy and sophisticated—nothing overly manly about it, but nice nonetheless.

1 Men Drive That Stinks: 2010 Infiniti Ex

Thiscan be considered a family vehicle since it can carry up to eight passengers, making it good for vacations and holiday travels. The performance of this car is exceptional, and its acceleration from 0 to 60 is just in 6.5 seconds, thanks to its 297-horsepower V-6 engine. When it comes to the handling and braking numbers, the vehicle borders on sport and sedan territory, which has been made possible by 0.81 g of lateral grip and a 123-foot 60-to-0 stopping distance. When the EX entered the market in 2010, it came with some revisions, which CarandDriver lists as heated outside mirrors, heated front seats, Bluetooth navigation, and a Zagat restaurant guide. It's great for guys with families, but maybe not the best choice for a guy on the town.
