Nothing beats open-air driving to help Mom shake off the everyday routine. The Jaguar F-type combines classic roadster looks with modern safety and convenience, not to mention a powerful engine that will give Mom a thrill. This cat's got claws!
I know; it's adorable. Though sporting a more macho look, the punch buggy retains enough of its trademark cuteness to still be universally appealing. Boasting approachable performance and a kicking Fender audio system, this Beetle is also the only ragtop on this list with a back seat for the kids.
Mercedes-Benz's new entry-level sedan shows a modern, sensuous look to match Mom's personal sense of glamor. Despite its size, the CLA250 includes all the Mercedes-Benz creature comforts to help Mom enjoy a drive.
Most compact cars settle for mundane styling, but Mom can feel special in the new Mazda3, which incorporates styling that makes it a stand-out. But looks aren't everything; the Mazda3 also proves a practical and economic errand-runner to help Mom out in routine tasks.
The BMW Z4 is a head turner, especially in shiny red paint. It's plenty powerful, but also smooth and easy to drive around town. Meanwhile, the power-retractable hardtop transforms the Bimmer from a sporty coupe to an open-air roadster.
Not only is the redesigned Boxster one of the best-looking cars to pass through our garage, its precision Porsche performance means that it's also one of the most fun. I can't think of a better ride for the thrill-seeking mom who likes the wind in her hair during her "me time."
