So Our Car Search Just Got a Little More Interesting!

So my wife and I are driving in her car over the weekend (Cobalt Coupe), windows down Sunroof open and I mention how I'm going to miss not having a coupe for a while, as we've been planning to replace her car with a CUV at the end of the year. My wife then turns to me and says that she we really don't need a CUV, a point to which I agree, and she wouldn't mind looking at something a bit more sporting as well. It looks as though priorities have shifted and I'm ecstatic!

She mentioned wanting to test drive a Challenger and maybe a Genesis Coupe; I told her we should test drive many sporting things and just to be sure she's happy ;)

I've already put together a document of all of the potential fun cars that might peak her interest and the pros/cons of each. She also really wants a sunroof. The list breaks down like so (max budget ~$36K all in CAD), feel free to add to or chastise my ideas:

  • 2015 VW GTI 3 Door DSG
  • 2014 Mazda CX-5 (It's the CUV at the top of our list)
  • 2014 Mazda3 GT
  • 2014 Camaro
  • 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coup
  • 2014(5) Dodge Challenger
  • 2014 Toyobaru Twin (Despite the lack of Sunroof)
  • 2014 Mini Cooper S

Oppo Caveat: She wants an automatic, this is her daily driver and I'm not about to argue with that.

Any suggestions?

PS: the MkVII GTI isn't just for show, I'd just love her to end up with that :)
