Lucire, a New Zealand-published (but international) fashion magazine, has listed its pick of favorite cars for the sixth year. This theme is “Cars to be Seen in” (as in 2006): what vehicles make the driver and their passengers look great. 
The list includes:
  • Alfa Romeo 159
  • Aston Martin V8 Vantage
  • Jaguar XK8
  • Honda Civic
  • Citroën C6
  • Peugeot 107
  • Porsche Carrera 4
  • Dacia Logan
  • Renault Clio III
  • Audi Q7
What’s more interesting is the “Honorable Mention” sidebar which includes such vehicles as the Mercedes-Benz R-class, Ford Mustang Convertible, and Ssangyong Rodius. The commentary is eye-opening, especially what they perceive as American views on the Mustang (“--which means it relies more on brutality than sophistication—“) and the Saab 9-2X (“Doesn’t fool the educated American buyer who wants a European car.”)
