What is a cool car? That’s the eternal question, isn’t it? Cool can be found in design, look, or stance. It may be in the interior, where trick engineering and technology translates into cool. Or it might be under the hood. There’s lots of room for cool in there.
My senior car buddies tell me that in the 50s and 60s, the only cool cars were two-door coupes and roadsters. Four-door cars were considered square and fuddy-duddy. But times have changed. Designers have adapted coupe styling to four-door cars, and there are some very cool four-doors out there right now. We’ve scoured the marketplace looking for coolness – and we’ve found them. Here (in alphabetical order by brand) are 10 cool four-door cars – and what makes them cool.
