There are a few things to consider. You need a reliable vehicle and one that meets your driving and cargo needs. And you need a car that matches your personality and style. Whether you're a lipstick femme or big burly butch, these are the top cars for lesbians. 01 of 10 Subaru Forester ( CC BY 2.0) by blachswan The Subaru Forester is great for lesbians with kids or dogs. It's as roomy as an SUV but drives like a car. With four-wheel drive, anti-lock brakes, and side airbags, it's one of the safest cars on the market. It handles well on road and off. This is the perfect car for outdoorsy types. Take it camping or snowboarding with no worries. 02 of 10 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Paul Marotta / Getty Images The Volkswagen Beetle is cute as a bug. You'll be sure to turn the girlies' heads as you cruise by in a Volkswagen Beetle convertible with the top down rocking out to Gwen Stefani. This is the perfect car if you're a California gal or just California dreamin'. 03 of 10 Honda Civic 2. Raymond Boyd / Getty Images The Honda Civic is totally practical and a big hit with women. It handles nicely and comes equipped with all the greatest safety equipment. There's a reason this is one of the most popular cars on the market. It's reliable, has great resale value, and comes in a hybrid or gas-powered version. 04 of 10 Toyota Prius Sean Gallup / Getty Images If you're a tree-hugger (and most lesbians are), you probably want a car that not only gets you where you're going but also does it in a way that's easy on the environment. The Toyota Prius is a great car that just happens to be a hybrid. 05 of 10 Mercedes-Benz R Class © M 93 / Wikimedia Commons, via Wikimedia Commons This is the fantastic car that Dana won in Season 3 of "The L Word." When Dana won this car, maybe sales of the Mercedes-Benz R Class series cars went up. Mercedes-Benz is a loyal advertiser in gay and lesbian media, and you'll be putting your money where your values are if you buy this car, that is, if you can afford the hefty price tag. 06 of 10 Mini Cooper By National Highway Traffic Safety Administration "L Word" fans, Dana won a Mercedes-Benz, but isn't Alice adorable in that Mini Cooper? How much fun would you have zipping around town in this cutey? Car reviewer Colin Hefferon has this to say about the Mini: "Reviewers and buyers alike agree the 2,500-pound Mini is a hoot to drive." If you want to smile every day on your commute to work, a Mini Cooper could be just what you need. 07 of 10 Ford F-150 Pickup Truck Justin Sullivan / Getty Images Lesbians love trucks. And it's not just to save money on a U-haul. The Ford F-150 pickup is perfect for those frequent trips to Home Depot or weekend soccer tournaments. Ford has consistently supported the gay and lesbian community and its LGBT employees. It was one of the few companies to earn 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equity Index. This is a truck you can buy with pride. 08 of 10 Dodge Magnum Creative #: / Getty Images For the butch with a family or one who just isn't a truck person, Dodge has in its lineup a great muscle car for the lesbian body-builder. What you give up in fuel economy, you make up for in power. The Dodge Magnum RT delivers 340 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque from its 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine. If you know what that means, then this is the car for you. 09 of 10 Honda Element Car Culture / Getty Images Whatever your sport, the Honda Element is the car for the jock on the go. Throw your surfboards in back and head to the beach in this roomy SUV alternative. Not only will a 160-pound dog fit in the back, with its rubber mat interior, you just have to hose the back down at the end of a muddy romp. Plus, with its unique styling, you're sure to attract attention as you cruise down the street. 10 of 10 Jeep Wrangler ( CC BY-SA 2.0) by mikelo If you spend time on the road and off, you can't do better than the Jeep Wrangler. Jeep started the whole SUV craze and continues to deliver a great car for both rugged forest roads and quiet city streets. Built as a utility vehicle, it's not the most comfortable ride in town, but pull up to the lesbian bar with the top down and the girls will know right away you're a good-time gal.
