For some people turning heads is equally as important as power, performance, handling or fuel economy.
The right look and the right badge can add an awful lot of kerb appeal to a car so with this in mind here are Diesel Car’s Top 5 fashion-conscious diesels.
The funky little Fiat took a big bite out of the MINI’s position at the top of the retro-cool tree when it arrived in 2007. With hundreds of personalisation options it’s easy to put your own personal touch on the 500. Fun, funky, frugal and fashionable – no wonder the 500 is popular with the in crowd.
The RCZ won plenty of plaudits upon its unveiling. The 2013 facelift made it look even better. Smartly styled both inside and out, the RCZ is gauranteed to win admiring glances as you cruise down the highstreet and no doubt have you checking your own reflection as you pass by.
It doesn’t matter which MINI you go for, be in Cooper or One, Hatch, Clubman or Countryman, all are imbued with the unmistakeble cool thats been part and parcel of the cars DNA since the 1960s. Today’s MINI might have grown somewhat but it still looks the part in Chelsea or Mayfair.
Range Rover Evoque
Everbody wants to be seen in a Range Rover these days. From James Bond to Posh Spice, the Solihull-based manufacturer has never been more popular with the followers of fashion. No car sums this up better than the Evoque. As a smartly-styled 4×4 Coupe it might have had its detractors but it’s been a huge hit with those looking to be part of the latest trend.
Audi A3 Cabriolet
The current generation A3 might be at the twilight of its life but it still remains high up on the list for those looking for a fashionable drop-top. The A3 manages to look good with the roof up, even better with it down, while Audi’s TDi engine is hard to fault. Top it off with a superb interior and a badge that has stacks of appeal and the A3 can’t lose.
