There are many aspects of our social image that we obsess over. For single guys, their set of wheels can be high on the list. In this article, we’ve put together a list of the 10 best cars a single guy should consider owning, based on a variety of factors such as: price, capabilities, horsepower, and presence. What makes and models would you have chosen? Keep reading to find out if your ride made the list.
1. Ford Mustang
Single guys who own a Ford Mustang appreciate the simple things in life. At the same time, the Mustang has always been a symbol of pedals glued to the floorboard. Bachelors with a few ponies in their garage work hard for their money and know that this old-school muscle car is also well appreciated by the opposite sex. Single guys looking to tap into this age-old tradition can expect anywhere from 310 to 480 horsepower from a $26,395 starting sticker price.
2. Audi A5
Seat yourself in any Audi sedan and you’ll find loads of sophisticated luxury and stylish design. Single guys who want to show the ladies they’re a man of taste and class should save up around $44,200 for an Audi A5. This sporty coupe offers 248 horsepower in an all-wheel drive format. With an Audi sedan, you’re able to harness sportiness, handling, style, and advanced technology, all without spending a fortune.
3. Cadillac Escalade
Cadillac models of the past offered starstruck lovers plenty of room for getting to know one another. Single guys shouldn’t expect the same of their Cadillac Escalade, but for about $75,000, the model will offer luxurious interior appointments to impress. A striking design language craftily hides the 420 horsepower sitting beneath the hood.
4. Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Jeep Grand Cherokee will cost you just over $32,000 but is capable of up to 707 horsepower (in more expensive variants, of course). Single guys with the keys to a Jeep Grand indulge their adventurous side while still maintaining a down-to-earth outlook on life. Take your date kayaking or indulge in a weekend camping getaway with that special someone.
5. Tesla Model S
Going green is an ever popular alternative these days. With the Tesla Model S, any single guy is sure to impress his naturally healthy partner. Tesla prides itself on innovation, but beneath the $75,000 shell there’s nearly 520 horsepower to work with. Whoever said helping the environment meant you had to drive a Toyota Prius? There’s also the cheaper (but slightly less cool) Model 3.
6. Ford F-150
A single guy with a pickup truck will ever run out of friends. The base F-150 begins around $28,155 and depending on which model you choose, offers anywhere from 250 to 450 horsepower. With the keys to a pickup truck, hard-working hunks can swoon their dates off their feet by splashing through the mud, conquering those pesky snowdrifts, or even staring at the stars from the back of the pickup bed. Of course, an F-150 owner will also be the first phone call anytime one of his buddies needs to move a couch.
7. Chevrolet Corvette
Though the 2020 C8 ‘Vette remains a teaser at the time of this article’s writing, a single guy driving a Corvette of any year will attract attention. Base Corvettes begin around $55,900, which isn’t bad for a platform that harnesses up to 755 horsepower when properly equipped. Corvettes offer bachelors the chance to drive America’s supercar without breaking their budget.
8. Land Rover Range Rover
Land Rovers dynamically straddle the line between two worlds: one where Jeeps and Subaru models thrive and the other where luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz and Bentley reign. The Range Rover strikes a balance between the two with a starting price of $90,900. Understandably, single guys able to afford that price tag will appreciate the 557 horsepower within. This SUV will definitely turn some heads, in all the right ways.
9. Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG
Speaking of luxury, we couldn’t complete this list without a Mercedes-Benz. The C63 AMG coupe is an iconic model for the brand and represents a single man who knows what he wants in life and isn’t afraid to go full-throttle after it. This German coupe is capable of up to 503 horsepower and costs around $68,750.
10. Alfa Romeo 4C
Starting around $66,900, this 237-horsepower coupe can come off small but has quite a lot of heart. A single guy who drives an Alfa Romeo 4C knows how to have fun in life. The spunky coupe offers him spontaneity and a bit of power, but not too much that he’s reckless. While it certainly may not perform the best as a daily driver, the Alfa Romeo 4C will complement any fun-loving single guy.
Wheels Aren’t Everything
We hope you take this list with a grain of salt — and a little laugh. For many single guys, the car they drive can mean a great deal to them — or nothing at all. We’re not here to judge. So whether you take pride in what you drive or consider your set of wheels merely as a way to get from Point A to Point B, we hope you at least enjoyed our list of the top 10 cars for single guys.
