Mothers, your day has arrived. While most sons and daughters will be making a bee line for the local florist, we think Mom deserves to be really spoiled this year.
After all, who carried you for nine months? Sorry, Dad.
The Leftlane staff put our heads together to come up with a list of 10 vehicles we think most mothers would be delighted to see in their driveways on Mother’s Day. What follows is a no-particular-order group of 10 wildly different cars that seem mother-approved to us. We left our list totally open-ended… as long as it has four wheels and can be bought new today by someone with at least a somewhat reasonable budget, it was considered.
What does your mother currently drive? What do you think she’d like to be driving in the future? Share your thoughts below.
The Top 10 Cars for Mom on Mother’s Day
Honda Odyssey. Minivans and mothers are an obvious stereotype, but that’s clearly quite all right with many parents. Honda’s latest Odyssey boasts unique styling and class-leading fuel economy along with arguably the most innovative interior ever put into a passenger car. Cubbies, storage pockets, cup holders, fold-flat seats and other conveniences abound.
Chevrolet Corvette. Mom might drive a family truckster, but you know she really wants something with a little power and style. Chevrolet’s evergreen Corvette lineup is the best it has ever been – both on road and on a track. And it’s an astoundingly good value equation, even if its price continues to creep upward. Just make sure you sign Mom up for an SCCA driving school first!
Volkswagen Beetle. VW has done the impossible by once again recreating a classic. This time, the Beetle brings with it a little mojo, including a more squat appearance and a pair of desirable turbocharged powertrains. Depending on Mom’s disposition, she might like the eco-friendly diesel-powered Beetle TDI or she might be better suited with the zippy Beetle Turbo.
