The car enthusiast will know men and women have very different tastes when it comes to choosing the perfect car. While men pay close attention to speed, power, and fuel efficiency; women are keen on design, safety features, storage, and reliability.

Based on reviews and customer feedback, the experts at Stewart's Automotive Group have carefully selected the top-two vehicles that incorporate everything a woman would want for her dream car. Their top-two picks are; The Mitsubishi ASX and the Suzuki Vitara.

The key features women should focus on when selecting a car are:

- Airbags: Airbags help to mitigate collision forces. Most vehicles come with, on average, two to six airbags. Always ensure that your vehicle has at least two front airbags.

- Traction control: Traction control automatically detects wheel slippage and effects control over the vehicle to assist the driver in staying in proper directional control.

- Side-impact beams: Strengthened zones designed to absorb energy from impact and prevent the area from being crumpled.

- Keyless entry: In this day and age, getting into the car should be quick and easy. Simply press the button to unlock the car.

According to Sales Consultant Jessica Mendez, the most popular vehicle purchased by women is now the Suzuki Vitara. The newly redesigned Vitara brings a sleek design which packages multiple safety features from multiple angles.
