You might think that all cars are just built for men. Many car enthusiasts don't believe that there are girly cars, so they sometimes commit the mistake of getting a car designed for the ladies. They sometimes don't recognize that driving a girly car can make them look too feminine or gay-ish even if the one driving is beefed up with muscles.
With many compact cars being produced, most of these look girly to drive. In a perfect world, anyone can drive any car without any judgment. However, in the real world, if you're a guy with a girly car, it speaks volume about you. It may even drive away the ladies if you have such car.
Some of the popular girly cars include the Beetle from Volkswagen, the Mini Cooper, and most compact electric cars. Even the New Beetle looks girly with its curvy design. Volkswagen tried its best to add a masculine touch to it, but it still ended up looking feminine, especially since it's mostly available in yellow.
With more and more women driving nowadays, it's easy to understand why there are more girly cars coming out. Automakers are designing cars to be smaller yet still comfortable to drive and to have softer appearances. However, if you want to avoid these girly cars because you're a manly driver with utmost speed running in your blood, you should read this list. We came up with a list that shows the girly cars available on the market that you should never buy for yourself.
15 Nissan Micra
Coming in pink, the Nissan Micra has a girly vibe similar to its sibling, the Nissan Figaro. There's no argument here, and it was even called a "wife's car." Aside from its feminine look, the Nissan Micra comes with features that make it easy to drive and make it perfect for lady drivers. For instance, it has parking sensors and auto headlights. Moreover, the Nissan Micra is easy to access with its keyless entry. So, women who bring a lot of stuff to their car will find it easier to open.
The Nissan Micra also has Bluetooth capability for techie girls. It also has power windows. However, even with its amazing features, it might be difficult to convince men to drive it.
14 Mazda MX-5
The Mazda MX-5 is a budget-friendly sports car. However, this sports car is designed mainly for women who race. In a way, the Mazda MX-5 is created for the ladies who like to drive fast on the streets. It may not be as fast as other sports cars, especially those that men love to race with, but it's definitely faster than those compact lady cars.
The Mazda MX-5, although girly, is still a fun car to drive on the streets. Hence, it still keeps a small following among men. It has the cuteness factor that drives most women crazy, which is why there are some men who go for it. Overall, the Mazda MX-5 is a nice car that can roar, and you can get it even without spending a fortune for it.
13 Kia Soul
The Kia Soul is another girly car with style. Although it stands out in the sea of girly cars because of its boxy appearance and slightly bigger size, it also possesses rounds and curves that make it sexy. Moreover, some car enthusiasts say that the Kia Soul has a similarity in design with the legendary Mini. The Kia Soul just sports a higher roof, but the touches of similarity are there.
Although the Kia Soul has a similar appeal to the Mini, it's way cheaper than the latter. The Mini is very expensive at $30,000 or more, while a brand-new Kia Soul starts at about $15,000. Furthermore, the Kia Soul boasts good fuel economy, so owning one to drive around town won't put a huge hole in your purse.
The Mini (or Mini Cooper in some markets) is a very stylish compact car. This small car is already iconic, but it was made even more popular when it was used as a getaway vehicle in the movie The Italian Job. Although it did a manly job in that movie, the Mini is one of the top girly cars around. It's small and fast but very feminine. Although it has very limited space and very limited power under the hood, it's still fun to drive.
The Mini is also one of the sexiest cars around. Although it has that feminine vibe, its seductive touch makes it irresistible for men as well. Hence, you can also see boys, who want to look good for girls, driving it. Moreover, as a sexy car, most drivers get one without any dark tints so they can be seen driving in this car.
11 Volkswagen Beetle
The Beetle, both the old and the new, comes with a girly design. Many argue about it because it was built in the 1930s when most drivers were men. It has an arched top and a curvy front and rear that embody that chick appeal. Although this car was created as an answer to the need of a people's car, it still ended up looking feminine. Moreover, the flower vase on its dashboard is a dead giveaway that the Beetle is a girl's car. Just throw in some lashes on its headlights, and it's a total woman in the form of a car.
In terms of size, the Beetle is quite compact compared to muscle cars and bigger SUVs. It also looks minuscule compared to monster trucks and cars used for races.
10 Nissan Figaro
The Nissan Figaro arrives in a semi-retro styling that gives off a girly vibe. One of its most popular colors is retro pink, which we all know is very feminine. The car is also available in other colors including Topaz Mist, Emerald Green, Pale Aqua, and Lapis Grey. Most of these colors have a dash of girliness. Aside from the style and the color, the Nissan Figaro clearly has girly lines all over its body.
This convertible was released in 1991, and it was only available in Nissan Cherry Stores in Japan. Even the store name where this car is available is also very girly. So, if you're a tough guy who wants a compact convertible, you may have to look elsewhere instead of getting the Nissan Figaro.
9 Ford Ka
Originally released as a street car that's edgy, the Ford Ka was later on marketed as a car for the ladies. Apparently, Ford even recognized it as its baby car since it's one of the smallest in its lineup. Known for muscle cars with massive horsepowers, Ford had to find a way to capture the women's market. So, they came up with the Ford Ka, and they somewhat succeeded.
Although the car isn't overly seductive, it's functional, so it perfectly satisfies the needs of most women who are on the go. It's cheap to use and is ideal for young professionals who are mostly single. Moreover, it's truly reliable and easy to maintain, so it's perfect for the ladies who know very little about tinkering with cars.
8 Smart Fortwo
The Smart Fortwo is a fully automatic car that's also an all-electric version. A small car, the Smart Fortwo is just a two-seater hatchback. With its very tiny interior, the car is designed mostly for women (or tiny men, if ever they really want to buy one). It has just enough space for the driver and maybe her designer bag. Even two adult passengers may be difficult to fit inside this small car.
Even if its size has disadvantages, the Smart Fortwo's size is also its advantage. This makes it easy to maneuver in tight streets and is easy to park in tight spaces. Since parking lots are limited and hard to come by, the Smart Fortwo makes it easier for the lady driver to parallel park.
7 Vauxhall Tigra
A tiny convertible, the Vauxhall Tigra is a girly car, though it may be a bit faster compared to other cars on this list. Still, its overall style has a feminine touch, which makes it a hit among women drivers. It has curves and edges that exude female sexiness. It's compact, which makes it easier for women to drive. Hence, overall, more women buy it than men.
The Vauxhall Tigra may be fast and furious, but it's still tame enough to be a perfect fit for women. Even if it has a weird name, this car is still attractive to many women drivers. Its style and demeanor make up a lot for its weird brand name.
6 Fiat 500
The Fiat 500 is a tiny car that looks pretty and harmless. Since it's small, it doesn't have the muscles of a pickup truck or an SUV. This compact car is available in more than 500,000 custom designs to match the driver's desires. Many instantly think that the Fiat 500 is a girly car, and we can't blame them, especially since the main endorser for this car is Jennifer Lopez. It was a hit among women, and that's all thanks to the huge following of J Lo.
Since most owners of the Fiat 500 are women, it's somewhat expected that they want their cars to stand out. Hence, more than 500,000 custom looks are out on the road right now.
5 Toyota Yaris
One of the mainstream girly cars is the Toyota Yaris. This car is known for being fun to drive even with its relatively good fuel economy. Also, even with that, it's still quite the performer on the streets. Moreover, the Toyota Yaris is a practical car despite its limited cabin space. It can still comfortably fit four passengers.
The Toyota Yaris is available in three- and five-door configurations. Although it's a feminine car, it's sporty nonetheless. Hence, it's popular among sporty girls rather than super feminine ones. There are also a few guys who are attracted to it. Those who want to stay within a small budget get the Toyota Yaris, be it male or female drivers.
4 Chevrolet Aveo
Another compact car on this list of girly cars, the Chevrolet Aveo is as cute as other tiny cars out there. Most of the Chevrolet Aveo units are available in a front-wheel-drive setup. Apparently, Chevrolet has paused the production of this car as of now, but girls who want to get their hands on one can find a handful in the used car market.
Although it's tiny, the Chevrolet Aveo can fit five passengers. It can also fit some cargo in its rear. However, don't expect huge legroom for the passengers. Furthermore, the car is known to be a little slow compared to other compact cars. So, if you want a compact car that performs, you better look somewhere else.
3 Peugeot 206
The Peugeot 206 is a girly car, and that's without arguments. Actually, even the sales of the car speak volumes about it. According to vcars.co.uk, the buyers of the car are 88% women and just 12% men. Similar to other girly cars, the Peugeot 206 is also a compact car. It has a small interior but can still fit enough stuff for women. Moreover, it has a not-so-strong engine, which is probably why fewer men are attracted to it.
The Peugeot 206 is a hit among 30-something women in Great Britain. The reason is probably its compact size, which makes it easy to drive in the tight streets of Britain.
2 Kia Forte
The Kia Forte is an inexpensive micro-car. It's a compact sedan that's popular among women drivers. Since it's a small car, it's easy to drive on cramped streets, which is a common difficulty that women struggle with. Moreover, this also means that it's easier to park despite the limited space.

The Kia Forte is an inexpensive car, so women who are looking for a vehicle and who are on a shoestring budget can consider it. Additionally, it's extremely fuel efficient, which makes it cheap to operate and maintain.
1 Hyundai Elantra
Among sedans, the Hyundai Elantra is a popular chick vehicle. Moreover, it's also an inexpensive car with a starting price of less than $20,000. In the long run, this car is also cheap to maintain. Hence, practical women choose to get this car. Under the hood, the Hyundai Elantra runs on a 1.8-liter engine rated with 185 hp. There's also a 2.0-liter version, and lady drivers who want more power can choose to have that. However, the Hyundai Elantra is also an economical car. You don't need to spend a lot of many to drive it around town. Lastly, it's popular in bright red - no wonder the Hyundai Elantra is a winner among the ladies.
