Editor's Picks - The Best Valentine's Day Rides

13 Feb 2019

It’s that time of the year again, where couples all over show their affection for each other with expensive gifts and overpriced dinners in an expression of love. Yep, it’s Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking to impress your date on this special day, here are some cool rides that are bound to make an impression, and maybe help you get lucky too. 

Mazda MX-5 2.0 RF

Nothing says “You’re my special one” better than a two-seater roadster. After all, what could be more romantic than a car that can accommodate just you and your partner, and nobody else? And arguably the roadster to get has to be this, the iconic Mazda MX-5.

In so many ways, the MX-5 is the ideal ride for the job. It looks stunning, and in RF form offers a folding hard-top that is not only fancy in its operation, but also offers great security in case the weather doesn’t go your way. It even offers the choice of a manual transmission for you to show off your driving skills to your partner, or you can choose to take it easy if you go for the automatic option.

Should your date not go well and you have to head home alone, you can still have fun in the MX-5, with its phenomenal handling prowess thanks to its light weight and awesome chassis. And the MX-5 has recently been updated with more power too, so there’s even more reason to enjoy the drive. And it’s all yours for just $176,688 (for the manual) or $182,688 (automatic), including COE.

MINI Cooper 3 Door

If you and your partner are into cute and funky things, then you might want to consider the MINI Cooper for your Valentine’s Day date. Many generations of couples have been serenaded by the MINI’s cheeky charm over the decades, so why not you?

The latest generation version may not be quite so ‘mini’ any more, but that can only mean more space to accommodate all your assorted stuff (like flowers, gifts, etc) that you’ll inevitable have to carry around on this special occasion. And while the Cooper already looks great as a fashion statement, chic little styling details like the Union Jack on the rear lamps amp up the style even further.

It’s not all show and no go too. The MINI Cooper is an exciting little chappie, always willing to delight with its energetic verve and peppy attitude. It’s the perfect companion for those looking for a good time, and could perhaps be a metaphor for a young, budding relationship: all fun, all the time. And you can pick up a MINI Cooper 3 Door for just $134,888 with COE.

Managed to get a good sale price for my relatively new car through this platform. Great service from Justin as well. The dealer offering the price was honest and did not find means and ways to further reduce the price quoted. A great experience!
