When you start to get a little older you sometimes have to make sacrifices and your car is one of the first things you’ll have change. A sporty car is fine when you’re younger but once you’ve got more responsibilities and you have to start thinking about things like family, it’s just not practical anymore. Every man dreads the day when he has to give up his baby and buy a practical car instead. But the reason that people find it so hard to let go is that they envisage themselves driving around in an embarrassing minivan or something. What if I told you it’s possible to get a great sporty car that has enough space to be practical as well? It sounds too good to be true but it’s not. These are some of the best practical cars that still look great.
The BMW M2 isn’t the most spacious car in the world but it’s got a good amount of room on the back seats so it’s perfect for a small family. You might have to get something a little bigger in the future but it’s a good transitional vehicle as you get a little older. It’s got a great 6 cylinder engine that gives great speed and a fierce growl so you can still enjoy driving with a bit of power behind you, while still having enough room for any day to day errands that you’ll have to run. It’s a little cramped in the front seats if you’re relatively tall but it’ll be a lot better than most other sports cars.
The Subaru Xv is a great car that combines functionality with a sporty aesthetic. It’s got plenty of space in the back seats and a great all-wheel drive system that makes driving the XV a treat. It’s also got an amazing entertainment system which is good for solo drives as well as entertaining the family when you get a little older. It’s also fitted with amazing drive assist features to make driving and parking an absolute breeze.
If you’re not thinking of starting a family anytime soon but you still wish you had a little more storage room, you don’t need to sacrifice too much at all. The Toyota GT86 is a popular choice for people that want a Porsche but don’t want to spend that much money on it. It looks incredible and there’s a good amount of space in the back, better for storage than people. The engine isn’t that powerful but for day to day driving it does just fine. If you’re looking for a good budget sports car that you can use for getting around and running a couple of errands, the Toyota GT86 is the car for you.
The Audi S5 offers practicality and style in one great package. The back seats are fairly spacious and the powerful V6 engine makes driving a treat. On top of that, it’s fitted out with all the latest tech including a great sat nav system and digital speedometer. It’s a brilliant all rounder and it won’t set you back that much.
Growing older doesn’t mean you have to give up on driving a car that you love, you just need to find a good balance between practicality and style.
