Thread of the Day: What is the Most Attractive Practical Car?

Enthusiasts can get excited over a vehicle’s performance numbers or overall value, but today we want to know which vehicle best combines practicality with eye-catching style. A Toyota Sienna SE minivan may be practical, but even with 19-inch wheels and a body kit, few would argue it’s one of the most attractive vehicles on the road. Similarly, the upcoming Alfa Romeo 4C has great styling, but won’t likely be very practical.

“Most cars that are practical aren’t attractive and most cars that are attractive aren’t practical,” asserts Motor Trend forum member T8rTawts. When asked for some suggestions on especially attractive practical vehicles, answers ranged from the new Dodge Dart to Audi and Cadillac wagons. Others mentioned the Honda Accord coupe and Porsche Cayman, with its front trunk and rear hatch. A 1951 Chevrolet Suburban made the list as well as the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor.
