Be it convertibles, sedans, hybrids or pickups, matching your vibe has never been easier. Whether you want to drip a little or more carefully guard the planet, there’s a car for you. Just choose wisely, then pull up in style wherever you go!
Chevrolet Silverado LT Trail
IF YOU’VE EVER QUESTIONED WHETHER A PICKUP CAN MAKE A STYLE STATEMENT, YOU’VE NEVER MET THE SILVERADO. Hit that country cookout in this, and be prepared to hold court all night. The 2019 Silverado LT Trail Boss doesn’t drive as bulky as it looks and delivers quite a bit of comfort. Inside, find heated front seats and steering wheel for those cold months or mornings, whichever is more frequent. Ample USB ports, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, along with 4G LTE connectivity, makes technology available everywhere. And of course, if rugged is more your style, this pickup goes anywhere; off-roading is just what it does! The hidden storage in the cab (under the front seats and via a rear bench) might be this Silverado’s most pleasant surprise. Use the lift assist to drop the tailgate with just a touch of a button and anticipate the awe. At 17 mpg, the combined fuel economy for city and highway driving definitely in line with industry standards. Pricing starts at $48,300 but tops out at around $56,790 when Bose speakers, leather seats and more are added to the mix.
Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 Cabriolet
CARS, NOT FOOTBALL STADIUMS, ARE STILL THE BEST THING MERCEDES-BENZ DOES, and its 2019 AMG E 53 Cabriolet proves why. Style is a given with the Benz; that’s just automatic. But like a lot of great things, sometimes naked is best. And for this beauty, losing the top is super easy. Just a touch of a button and voila, there it is. With the top down, the lines flow seamlessly from front to back. It’s truly a sight to behold. Since it’s AMG (their high-performance line), you know it comes with that fire. In this case, that means a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine that delivers 429 horsepower and 384 foot-pounds of torque. Go from 0 to 60 in a mere 4.3 seconds. Of course, it’s keyless. Switching gears might take some getting used to, but you’ll get the hang of it. One surprise perk is a combined MPG of 23. Base price starts at $80,350, but there are plenty of perks to push it towards the $100,000 mark.
MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 PHEV
NOT ALL MINIS ARE THAT MINI. MEET THE COUNTRYMAN, the MINI Cooper’s subcompact crossover SUV. Although it was introduced in 2010, folks are still getting to know it. And they should. Far more spacious than expected, the Countryman can actually seat four people rather comfortably. MINI’s first PHEV (plug-in electric vehicle), this Countryman packs a huge environmental punch. We’re talking an incredible 65 mpg in electric mode and an impressive 27 mpg in gasoline mode. That’s right, go electric, but switch to gas if needed. Driving it is a joy. Its 1.5-liter twin-turbocharged three-cylinder engine delivers 134 horsepower and 162 foot-pounds of torque, adding 87 more horsepower and 133 foot-pounds of torque electrically. For such a small car, 221 net horsepower and foot-pounds of torque is pretty darn good. The maneuverability is crazy and yes, it looks good. This 2019 Countryman definitely makes a stylish statement. Pricing starts at $36,900 and can top out around $45,750 with the sport edition and other goodies.
Lexus ES 350 Ultra Luxury
FOR THE ES’S 30TH BIRTHDAY, LEXUS OPTED FOR A STYLE REFRESH, shining most impressively with the ES 350. The spindle grille is the first attention grabber, giving way to the elegant design. SUVs may be taking over, but this sedan isn’t going down without a fight. Few cars can transport a full family or just a solo driver as stylishly as this. The lush interior comes with a multimedia system that more than keeps up; just ask Alexa. Voice control your playlist, weather alerts and your smart-home devices with Amazon’s Alexa. Thanks to the Mark Levinson audio system, the ES never sounded so good. It drives well too, with the 3.5-liter V6 engine unleashing 302 horsepower and 267 foot-pounds of torque. Put it in sport mode and get the thrill of your life. Acceleration is easy and handling is masterful, especially for a “family” vehicle. It’s Lexus, so safety is assured. Pull out of a parking spot without noticing that other vehicle coming up fast out of nowhere and the ES has got you, braking immediately. Pricing starts at $43,150 but only pushes near $53,750 with added perks.
