What's the new "chick car"?

Illustration for article titled Whats the new chick car?

With automakers re-masculinizing their vehicles, like Volkswagen's doing to the new, new Beetle, what will become of the profoundly sexist — yet still demographically apt — construct, the car pour les femmes? What's the new "chick car"?


The Hyundai Veloster has every chick car aspect covered: it's cute, it's charismatic, and — like women themselves — it's more useful than most of its counterparts. What say you?

Dear Jalopnik,

you made me want to stroke out with your snotty "Look at this ghetto base-model Jetta! Who would drive that?" post from a couple weeks ago. Yet I forgave your ignorance and insensitivity towards working class people who want a safe car for their family but can't afford to wank and ogle over Ferrari Sploogerattis all day. I did!

Yet today you made me stifle the urge to simultaneously vomit/stop trying to learn anything about cars with this gem of a fourth-grade-boy topic attended to by its legion of small-cocked, bitter commenters.


From a "chick" driver of a blue 1990 Jetta Diesel...something I'm sure someone will point out as a precursor to THE mid-90s "chick car", the white Jetta (aka the "bitch" car). See, I did it for you!
