Used Cars That Give You Street Cred

If you’re looking to get some street cred in the streets of Utah, New York or even Europe, this list is a good start to get you going on your search. When looking for a used car that will get you looks, an important thing to remember is that spoilers and fins are a must, as well as sick rims and tint so dark you can’t see out of your windows at night. And bad colors don’t really boost your street cred, know what I’m sayin’? Oh, one last thing…make sure you get a manual, automatics just aren’t that cool.

Volkswagen GTI

Volkswagen GTI

A GTI is a good start to give you some street cred. Although not super roomy for all of your homies to ride in, you still have plenty of space for stuff if you put the back seats down. This is a used car to seriously consider, not only because of its excellent handling, but because if you throw some chrome rims on that thing, you’ll have street cred coming out of your ears.

Honda Civic SI

Honda Civic SI

The Japanese sports car of your dreams. This car will make you popular whether you live in Southern Utah or Compton. Black on black is the way to go, with maybe some red in the rims for an added detail. The Civic handles really well and also isn’t too shabby on gas mileage, but don’t tell your homies that — a good mpg rate isn’t really a way to build your rep on the streets.

Mazda RX-8

Mazda RX-8

If you’ve got a lead foot, this car is for you. It’s just waiting for you to whip it around corners and race it at the midnight drag races at Rocky Mountain Raceway in Utah. This is one used car you definitely need to take seriously because it will get you from point A to point B in no time.

Audi A4

Audi A4

It doesn’t hurt to throw a ski rack on your A4 for a little more street cred. Not only does it look cool, but you can also take it skiing or snowboarding. Practicality and street cred for the price of one? Great idea.

5

Infiniti G37

Infiniti G37

Not only is this a used car that’s going to give you some serious street cred, but it also handles very nicely as well. So when you’re racing down the freeway, you’ll be able to make those sharp turns like a champ and you won’t look like a rookie while doing it, either.

Nissan 350Z

Nissan 350Z

Good looking plus quick off the line. A 350Z is the car for you if you like to go fast and look good while doing it. It’s got a sleek design that only looks better with some nice rims and a fresh tint job.

Subaru WRX

Subaru WRX

The hatchback gives you some serious street cred, along with the spoiler and fin on the back. You’ll certainly attract the attention of everyone on the roads when you’re driving your WRX. It’s the perfect car to gain some legitimate street cred.

Mitisubishi Evo GSR

Mitisubishi Evo GSR

The king of used cars to purchase for some street cred. Everybody knows that Evos are not only fun to drive because of how fast they are, but if you want to be taken seriously on the streets, even in Utah, get an Evo. You’ll have so much street cred you’ll barely know what to do with it all.
