Our favorite multi-tasking cars are a mash up of two very different segments
Positioning: Street Coupe
Beemer’s first 4×4 coupe goes like a stabbed rat and handles like a car half its size.
Pros: The closest you’ll come to driving a life-sized Tonka toy.
Cons: Despite being as big as a racecourse, it only has four seats.
ASTON MARTIN RAPIDE S
Positioning: Super car / Family sedan
This is the bond car James would drive, should he decide to settle down and have kids.
Pros: Um, have you seen it?
Cons: Only midgets/kids can fit in the back seats.
Positioning: Small car / Wannabe sedan
It’s a CLS that’s been shrunk in the wash. Looks and handles like a sports car while conveniently accommodating both girlfriend and mother in complete comfort. Who gets to ride shotgun is your call.
Pros: There’s an AMG option. Enough said.
Cons: Best viewed from the front – avoid if you’re an arse man.
Positioning: Pocket rocket / 4×4
The mini’s already a favorite and now you can use it off-road, too. That it also looks a bit like Darth Vader makes it even more awesome.
Pros: Much cheaper than an evoque.
Cons: Who is ever going to test its actual off-road ability?
Positioning: Go-kart / Your dad’s car
An unlikely crossover, this car is tiny on the outside, gigantic on the inside. Could carry an entire cricket team. Maybe.
Pros: Drinks significantly less than a sedan.
Cons: Looks like something your grandma would drive.
