I don’t know anyone who has gone out and bought a car just to impress a date.
If such a guy did exist, there are certain vehicles he’d want to consider, and others that have no business shuttling a proper lady between the restaurant, movie theater and mini-golf course.
Of course, if the date involves a woman who doesn’t fit the description of “proper,” the choice of chariot probably doesn’t matter much. But let’s assume that you are the type of guy who wants to impress your date with a car that gives you the best shot at umm… a second date.
What should you buy? Read on.
First of all, you won’t see anything from BMW or Porsche on this list. They make fine cars, but women tend to find their drivers a bit… arrogant and off-putting. That’s not the first impression we’re going for here.
A used Land Rover says you appreciate some class, but have a bit of ruggedness to you as well. She’ll also appreciate that you’re smart about saving a lot of coin by not buying new. You’ll now have money available to spend on her.
The same theory as the Land Rover applies, though you’ll ooze significantly less class. Still, you’ll be a good old-fashioned American man ready to show her a good time in plenty of comfort.
Bear with me on this one. You can’t go with a new Accord, or she’ll think you’re driving your mom’s car. Not good. You can’t go too old, or she’ll think you’re a broke loser. But somewhere in the middle lies the sweet spot that says you value practicality and stability, two things some women find irresistible.
If you’d rather showcase some “bad boy attitude” and hope that’s her thing, the 300 should do the trick.

New or old, it doesn’t matter. She’ll feel like a princess and probably marry you before the night ends.
Okay, the term “sports car” might be a stretch here, but a woman will love this car’s classic lines, and she’ll probably picture you in the garage working on it. Good thing you’re good with your hands, huh?
Umm… yeah. Unless you live in Arkansas, don’t take a date out in a pickup.
Ladies and gentlemen: What’s your perfect date car?
