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!
Volkswagen Beetle Convertible
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.
BMW Z4 sDrive35is
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.
Audi A7 TDI
Svelte and comfortable, the Audi A7 TDI also features an economical diesel engine, all attributes that Mom can appreciate. Dedicated data will keep her connected while out on the road.
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."
