Every couple shares a unique and defining set of interests that makes their relationship special. Some follow each other on wild and exciting adventures while others prefer spending their time curled up on the couch – and there’s a car for every type of couple out there. In the spirit of the month of love, Imperial Auto has hand-picked the cars best suited to our favourite couple personalities.

  1. The Adventurous Pair

Adventure-seekers are constantly searching for new ways to see the world and are always up for sharing new experiences with one another. We believe that couples who travel together, stay together – and what better way to indulge your wanderlust than hopping in a Jeep Wrangler and going on another epic journey with the one you love by your side?

The Wrangler is the ideal getaway vehicle for couples with itchy feet and is especially useful for taking on tough terrain. Enjoy the luxury of the plush yet practical interior while navigating sharp inclines and jagged peaks like a pro, using the on-board navigation system and four-wheel-drive functions. Kick it up a notch with Jeep’s Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control features, or ease into cruise-control mode and enjoy the scenery.

  1. The Power Couple

Couples who share a love for the finer things in life go all out when it comes to spending quality time with one another. Whether at work or at a glamourous event, they always arrive in style just in time to steal the show. Power couples make their way from A to B in refined style – go ahead and treat yourselves while turning a few heads in a ride fit for South African socialites.

Built for comfort and decked out with cutting-edge design and technology, the Jaguar XE offers couples a smooth but thrilling driving experience– whether they’re gliding through city streets or heading out of town for a few days. The lightweight aluminium structure coupled with 240 horsepower will get you going in a matter of seconds, while safety features like Jaguar InControl will ensure you reach your destination with hair and make-up intact.

  1. High School Sweethearts

Being together for so long means there’s nothing these love birds wouldn’t share with one another – they’re pretty much inseparable and happy to spend all their time with their soulmate. Zipping around town playing music that brings back memories of the old days while you make more fun and happy memories is a lot easier to do in a MINI Cooper Convertible – the perfect love-bug for the contemporary couple on the go.

Driving around in a MINI is the most fun you can have on four wheels and, with the electric fabric soft-top retractable at speeds of up to 30km/h, you can also enjoy a little fun in the sun while you’re at it. Don’t forget the three-cylinder engine with six-speed manual gearbox that will have you both flying off into the sunset in no time at all.

  1. The Sporty Couple

Hitting the gym or going on a run together is the best time to unwind and every sporty couple’s favourite way to hang out. Spending time being active and healthy is a priority in their relationship, and they are known for being the most enthusiastic and energetic duo of all. Going places means having a ride that gets you there quickly – without compromising on the cool factor.

The VW Cross Polo Hatch comes in a range of fresh and exciting colours including Sunset Red and Honey Orange, with a touch-screen entertainment system and roof rails to carry anything from mountain bikes to surfboards for an epic weekend away. The Cross Polo also offers Park Distance Control and rear view camera, so you’ll never have to worry about getting into tight parking spots.
