Buying a car is a rather serious and responsible step, which should be approached very carefully. Especially if it concerns a vehicle that will be driven by a representative of the fair sex.

How to choose a suitable women’s car?
There are quite a lot of criteria for choosing a car. One of the most important is the volume of the motor, since it is this element that performs the main function when moving, regardless of the conditions. The engine has quite a lot of parameters, but the key one is the volume of cylinders. The greater this factor, the more fuel will be burned at one stroke, respectively, the energy output of the piston will be much higher.
If the vehicle is purchased for driving in urban conditions (especially with small children), then it is best to give preference to products whose engine capacity ranges from 0.9 to 1.1 liters. for classic family trips, it is advisable to purchase a car with an engine capacity of approximately 1.8-2.5 liters.
Another important point that in most cases affects the choice of car is the type of fuel for the engine-modern engines can run on diesel fuel, on classic gasoline or on gas. Diesel fuel at its cost at gas stations will cost somewhat cheaper, besides, engines running on this fuel are quite durable, unpretentious in operation, and also practically do not break. Unfortunately, the speed qualities suffer somewhat because of this.
Gasoline engines are characterized by increased power, they are able to accelerate to decent speeds on the highway, but at the same time they are much more expensive and more difficult to maintain. According to motorists, these engines are optimal for family cars. Engines running on gas fuel are characterized by economical operation, but they are able to carry a large load.
Another factor is body type, this parameter directly depends on how convenient it would be to accommodate the passengers in the cabin. One of the most common models is the sedan, which is able to transport 4-5 people together with the driver. This car is perfect for family trips. There are still quite a few types of bodies, but most girls prefer the sedan.
When choosing cars for inclusion in our rating, we mainly relied on all the points discussed above, but also took into account some other factors – user reviews and the ratio of price and quality of products. We have tried to include only models that do not differ in the highest price in the review, so that most of our readers can afford these products.
For novice car enthusiasts
5. Fiat 500
A three-door model that has been mass-produced for more than 12 years. The products are characterized by an original appearance, which largely distinguishes it from most subcompacts like the Matiz. The design is very interesting, made in the old days. The front of the car has four pronounced headlights, which are arranged in pairs. Fog lights can be found on the bumper. Wheel arches look very interesting due to the increased width. Together with the extended threshold, they significantly increase the aerodynamic characteristics of this car. In General, the design is designed in such a way that the car looks very interesting and stylish, so it will stand out vividly among the gray mass of other vehicles. Small overall dimensions allow the model to maneuver quickly even in fairly dense traffic, which is usually found in urban environments.

The ground clearance is 130 mm, so it is unlikely to be possible to drive a car off-road or on a dirt road. The interior of the car looks very attractive. First of all, the eye falls on the original dashboard, where you can find a tachometer, speedometer, fuel gauge, temperature sensor. All other controls are at your fingertips. The colors are soft and attractive, and thanks to them, the developers managed to achieve maximum comfort in the cabin. On the front panel, you can find a curious insert that imitates polished aluminum.

However, this was also not enough for the manufacturers, as a result of which the products underwent a number of significant changes, after which in 2015 the car that we still know appeared on the market.
