Being a single guy gets a bad rap. It’s always, ‘dude, you’ve gotta find a girl,’ or ‘hey, it’s 6 in the afternoon, why are you still pantsless and eating a block of cheese?’ Aside from the social stigma, however, there are a few distinct advantages to being plus none. First, the world is your oyster. You can go out whenever, and there are over 3 billion women waiting for you (may not be accurate). And, being single provides opportunities (money) that aren’t going to exist when The One comes knocking and it’s off to family land. Take cars. It’s time to be selfish, take chances, and drive exactly the car you want, no matter how impractical or risky. And it doesn’t hurt to look impressive either because it wouldn’t be fun without the option of taking of one the 3 billion home.
Best new cars for the single guy
#1 Best Car for a Single Guy – Chevy Volt
Motor Trend’s 2011 Car of the Year is a good place to start. Volt looks pretty damn good for an electric beast unlike its predecessors which already gives it a head up. Plus, you can impress with a clean worldliness and lack of gas breaks. Impressing vegan girls will run about $35,000 before accessories like the home charger.
#2 Best Car for a Single Guy Range Rover Evoque
Speaking of price, Evoque isn’t too bad (for a Range) at $45,000 or so, and it’s the new lux SUV, and it’ll give you instant style and class. A turbocharged engine and a personalized design theme will garner attention as well.
#3 Best Car(s) for a Single Guy – Dodge Challenger/Chevy Camaro
Challenger and Camaro are bunched together because they represent the classic American muscle past redone for a new generation of Woodersons (though he drove a Chevelle SS). Sexy looks, mid-20’s price range, and 300 plus HP will get you past the high school girls.
#4 Best Car for a Single Guy – Audi A5
Audi style is underrated. And with the A5, you’ll have the option of all-wheel drive to be the man in all weather conditions. While you’re conquering the roads, take comfort in MMI and Audi’s Bang & Olufsen Sound System. It comes in convertible, or Cabrio, form as well.
#5 Best Car for a Single Guy – BMW 3 Series
Bimmer’s contribution to luxury comes in many forms, but may I suggest the 328i Coupe. It starts under $40,000, gets 28 highway MPG, and it’s a BMW. Call it cliché, but you wouldn’t disappoint a date with this car.
#6 Best Car for a Single Guy – Nissan 370Z
370Z can be rough, and it’s only got 2 seats, but it can drive. You don’t have car seats or 8 pieces of luggage, so enjoy 332 HP with SynchroRev shifting while you can.
#7 Best Car for a Single Guy – Cadillac CTS Coupe
Avoid the Escalade and downsize Cadillac style with the CTS Coupe. There’s nothing quite like it looks wise, and 318 HP (2012 model) worth of Cadillac features is worth going out in. CTS-V is a step beyond in niceties and power, but it’ll cost you.
#8 Best Car for a Single Guy – Honda CR-Z
The cheaper alternative to 2 seat fun, CR-Z is actually a ‘sport hybrid’ meaning it’s a lot of fun to drive and responsible to the tune of 34 combined MPG. It looks like the spaceship from Flight of the Navigator, but that just means you’re more aerodynamic.
#9 Best Car for a Single Guy – Ford Focus ST
Due in November, Focus ST is a turbocharged 247 HP, 260 lb.-ft. of torque equipped performance standout. And it’s from Ford. If there’s another Fast & Furious movie (there will be) I will bet money that someone will be driving a Focus ST.
