The Best Cars for Professional Nigerian Women in Fairly Used SUVs and CUVs

SUVs For Professional Nigerian Women

Only one chance – you have perhaps seconds to create a good first-time impression as a professional woman in the men dominated the business world in Nigeria. Two things are likely to create it: the way you dress and the car you drive. Before you even start to discuss with a client about a multi-million Naira deal, your dressing and your vehicle have already created the needed impression for you. For some clients, it can be enough reason to give you full attention. Since Nigerian roads are very rough, going for female-friendly Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) or Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) will certainly compensate for the effort of a professional woman in Nigeria. Imagine you coming out from a modern, prestigious car with an aura of success formed around you that puts your environment in no doubt. Now you are confidently ready for that deal.

So what female-friendly vehicles are to consider for a professional woman in Nigeria? Compiling a list of the best cars for women is no easy task because it assumes that women’s wants and needs are easily generalized. So to find the best cars for professional women, understand that cars have to be versatile. Some versatile vehicles have loads of cargo space, while others are super fuel-efficient, enabling the sort of freedom that comes with bypassing the gas station more often than not. Of course, there are more subjective factors, as well. Here are 10 of the best fairly used vehicles a woman can buy.

1. CRV from 2013

The Honda CRV 2013 is one of the best selling vehicles in Nigeria, and it’s the love of women’s heart. It’s easy to drive, has lots of room for its size and gets good mileage. It’s an improvement to the 2012 Honda CR-V’s interior, cargo configurable, ride quality and standard-equipment list which keeps it atop women car shoppers’ must test list.

2. RAV4 from 2008

The Toyota RAV4 which stands for “Recreational Active Vehicle” is a mini SUV which is now brimming with vehicles that look like sport-utility but are engineered on a compact front-drive, unibody passenger car platforms rather than a separate frame. The RAV4 has plenty of virtues: agile handling, the option of three-row seating, and of course a mark of Toyota’s solid reputation for quality. And don’t forget the RAV4’s number-one ranking in younger women acquisition list.

3. Nissan Qashqai

The Nissan Qashqai is fast becoming one of the most popular vehicles of this automotive generation. With luxury and safety features to rival even the most expensive vehicles, this is an affordable luxury crossover that is perfect for women.

4. MB ML 4matik

Mercedes Benz ML 4matik is terrifically refined, impressively frugal, and big on safety kit, roomier and a better drive – both on and off-road. This car offers a nice balance between power and fuel economy while driving lots of luxury and a sportier drive without being harsh.

5. 2016 BMW X1

The BMW X1 offers that sensible and practical package that many women like but it’s also very fun to drive and has sporty demeanor. So it’s perfect for those women who love the blend of practicality and performance that it can provide. It is also good looking and very stylish, something I’ve found women value far more than men, in terms of cars.

6. Audi Q7

The Q7 utilizes a modified version of the Volkswagen Group PL71 platform. Previewed by the Audi Pikes Peak Quattro concept car, the Q7 is designed more for on-road use and was not meant for serious off-road use where a transfer case is needed. For women who want to have a litter of children, the Audi Q7 is your car. It accommodates FIVE baby seats and of course, with these many children you will likely need a trailer for the entire baby gear.

7. Range Rover Sport

Women love Range Rover Sport for these reasons – they are expensive off-road capable vehicles designed to induce swoon, which is why men also aspire to own them. It’s voted “most desirable SUV” in women’s car of the year competition in 2014. Agility isn’t normally a word used when the subject is a 2.5-ton luxury SUV—but the Range Rover Sport blends enthusiasm with legendary off-road prowess.

8. Range Rover Evoque

The Evoque is designed to appeal to urban buyers and meet requirements for lower CO2 emissions and fuel economy. The Evoque, was designed to add a more affordable model to the 'high-end' classic Range Rover range, was received positively by the automotive press for retaining the features, amenities, and off-road capabilities of a traditional Range Rover in a smaller package. The Evoque has been voted for and has won the 2012 women’s car of the year, the writers judge the car according to the criteria women consider when buying one such as safety; value-for-money; storage space; ease-of-driving; color and sex appeal such as Posh Beckham.

9. Lexus RX 330 – 350

Many people I know describe the Lexus RX 330 – 350 as a woman’s car. I’ve also noticed that most RX drivers I see on the road are women. Therefore, the new crossover has earned the love of many loyal women around the world. When your preference is low fuel consumption – Lexus RX350 becomes the best option, both for the city and for country outings. Just keep in mind that Lexus RX 350 is a luxury car and demands the appropriate care and respect.

10. Hyundai Tucson 2013

The Hyundai Tucson has won the 2016 women on wheels car of the year award. The car took the top honor due to its affordability, practicality and overall value for money. Unlike most vehicles in this segment, Tucson puts more emphasis on the "sport" part of the SUV acronym than it does the "utility." A sport-tuned suspension and relatively quick, well-weighted steering give the Tucson an entertaining personality when you're behind the wheel. The Tucson also looks pretty stylish, with flowing lines that recall the same themes found in the Hyundai Elantra and Sonata sedans.

Women have a different buying behavior in selecting their type of cars in terms of class, style, and car size; these are influenced by age, class, and style as well as car size. Women are more car efficiency-minded instead of car technical characteristic evaluation. They need an efficient car instead of a luxury car or stylish and size. A car seller explains efficiency superiority, practicality and car safety for women. This is useful for auto industrialists to modify its products for additional attractiveness, quality and size or car preferentiality for women to improve sales volume.
