What defines a "girly car"

Serious question, as I am/was! looking at changing my Mondeo, for something a bit smaller, more along a Ford Focus size of car

The car I mentioned to a friend, scoffed, at me, and said it was a girls car, now im worried

All I need is a four seater with a decent sized boot/tailgate,
Now, I will come clean as to what I was after, but would like to hear what others see as a girls/female car

Ie,

A Ford Ka is girly





Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

I'd have a 106 - loads of very cheap fun (still miss my old one)

mind I never liked the mondeo's much in the first place, the original ones are horrible (although not as bad as a Vectra) and the later ones are a focus with an serious obesity problem

Thanks Andy for your witty comment

I quite like the look of the Ford Kuga, or cougar as my mate pointed out

The Kuga is basicly a revamped Focus

so now that ive come clean, is the Kuga a girly car

My mate had a Kuga, wouldn't say it was girly, he got shut after a month though, just didn't like it.

Girly cars are usually defined by the tit that's driving them, so if your mate say's your car is Girly, give him a slap.

I personally would avoid these, however, I would take Nicki Minaj's pink lambo for free. Hopefully you can see the theme to avoid ;-)







Also avoid cars with eyelashes!





If it ain't broken, fix it anyway (just because).

Maybe point out to him that the 1970's have ended. Does he have side burns and drive a Capri?

My mate bought a Tiguan and I take the wee calling him a soccer mom now... bu as others have said, get whatever you like and you want, who cares what other people think. Would I get one, no, but st the same time I don't really care if someone else is driving one!

As I see it the C-max is a stretched up focus, the Kuga is more or less the same but adds ground clearance and maybe haldex 4x4 (like all the other soft-roaders) other than that the Kuga's tend to only come in higher trim specs...

out of the three personally I'd have the focus - it'll be cheaper, weigh less, handle better, go faster and use less fuel than the equivalent kuga.

however in reality due to having small people to transport on a daily basis - I've got the c-max now
its defiantly a family car, but not quite a full on people carrier (its still a quite chuckable on the twisty roads )

Not really

but to me it says a family car for someone who doesn't want to admit they need a family car (if that makes sense)
I'd place it a closer to a nissan qashqai or maybe a vw tiguan

Apart from joking about pink cars, I do drive a practical Fiat Qubo, 1.3 diesel, 95bhp, 70mpg, £30 road tax, fun to drive, sliding rear doors, smallish car but tonnes of room inside for my two 6ft tall teenage sons. And, cheap as chips to buy ('15' plate £7.5k).



To get my thrills I have a big V-twin Aprilla bike and a Haynes Roadster on the way!

Never liked them and they seem to be driven young ladies with wealthy parents or middle aged ladies with a touch of mid-life crisis.

Others mention MX5s, they seem ok to me though.

All in if a Focus does what you need go for it.

I will confess to thinking the MX5 a bit hairdresser, until I drove one - it was actually a very pleasant and fun experience. If I ever sell my Locost and still want a fun car, then the MX5 has to be top of the list.

Wife has a Bipper Tepee. You can hose it out which is great with a three year old. I'd have been tempted too but tow weights are pathetic.
