What type of car are you?

Posted by: Jasmine Swoope

The Free Spirit: Merecedes Smart Car

There’s a little something for everyone at the Auto Show, even the free spirited artists. If you’re looking to see a paint job that will knock your socks off, look no farther than the Smart Car painted by artist Miguel Paredes. The finished piece is amazing and his graffiti art style is reminiscent of another, street artist Banksy.

Environmentalist: Nissan Leaf

If being “Green” is your thing, look no further than the Nissan Leaf. The Leaf is the original entirely electric vehicle. Here in the city the battery is expected to last an astounding 115 miles. Forget filling up the gas tank and start plugging in with a Nissan Leaf.

Need for Speed: Bugatti Veyron 16.4

The saying goes “I woke up in a new Bugatti” but who could fall asleep with one? The Bugatti is the fastest car on the Chicago Auto Show floor. It has an amazing 1200 horsepower (!) and the sophistication of Mr.Gatsby himself.

Mrs. Congeniality: Maserati GT-MC Convertible

If you’re using the word dazzling, then you must be talking about the Maserati GT-MC. It has just the right amount of unprecedented comfort and wild spontaneity that would make anyone gaze in amazement.

Ultimate Wingman: Jaguar F-Type

Need a hand with scoring big in the love department? With a high performance braking system and subtle style the Jaguary F-Type drop top is the best wingman to have. It’ll help you make the first move in style.

Old Reliable: 2014 Buick CaCrosse

Don’t let this title fool you, there is nothing old about the 2014 Buick LaCrosse. The buick won this award because their engines last forever and with this model’s new sleek design, there’s no need to trade up anytime soon.

Best of Both Worlds: PorschePanamera S-E Hybrid

Who says you can’t have it all? The Porsche Panamera S-E Hybrid is truly the best of both worlds. It has both electric and gas capabilities without compromising on style. There is just something so incredible about this car, it’s pretty, it’s powerful, and it’s a Porsche.

The Adventurer: Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

If you’re looking to take the road less traveled, do it in the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The Fuel Tank Skid Plate will protect your gas tank from any flying gravel and debri. So don’t be afraid to take this bad boy to the wild side and cruise down some mountain trails. The exploration possibilities are endless.

Munchkin: Fiat 500 1957 Model

The Fiat 500 1957 Model is solid proof that big things do in fact come in small packages. Packed with the 1950’s vintage style of the Italians and engaging dynamics that Fiat is known for, this compact car packs a nice punch of originality.

Teenage Dream: Red Dodge Challenger

The Red Dodge Charger is the car every teenager wants to see in their driveway on their 16th birthday. With special add ons like the 20-inch chrome-clad wheels; Beats by Dr. Dre Premium Audio and  blind-spot monitoring this car has that red hot swag to make the best first day of school impression.

Mom of the Year: Chrysler T&C S Model

Mothers help the world go round. To keep up with such demanding schedules look no further than the Chrysler T&C S Model. Known for its cargo carrying capacity, safety standard rating, and an Industry-exclusive Blu-Ray player, this van has everything that a busy mother would need. The Chrysler T&C S Model is definitely Mom of the Year. 

Mr. Mom: Subaru XV Crosstrek

Who said you have to trade in your man card when you become a dad? The Subaru XV is the perfect combination of functionality, style and bold power. With its five-passenger cabin, up to 51.9 cubic feet of carrying space and 148 horsepower.Gone are the days of bulky dad cars, the Subaru VX Crosstrek is the new Mr. Mom.

The Silver Fox: Rolls Royce Phantom

Move over James Bond, the new silver fox is here! The Rolls Royce Phantom exudes a classic, finessed maturity that comes with age. With its rear-hinged coach doors and detailed tailored seating, no wonder it received the award for The Silver Fox.
