The Best Used Cars to Buy If You’re an Architect

Used Car for Architect

Obviously, architects appreciate beauty and symmetry. This is not just the case when it comes to their building projects, but also in terms of the vehicles they choose.

We have evaluated several used cars, and identified the Mercedes CLA, Cadillac ATS, Mazda CX-5, Buick Encore, and Audi A3 as the vehicles most likely to please the discriminating architect.

  • Mercedes CLA: This car definitely stands out. Low, sporty and sleek, with dramatic lines, the CLA is one of the most visually stunning offerings in the Mercedes line. Simply stated, it elevates the brand, and it makes you look great while driving it. We think it’s a great way to impress your clients, as well as being a superb ride.

  • Cadillac ATS: The ATS is reminiscent in appearance of the BMW 3 series, but Cadillac has definitely put their own mark on it. This vehicle is visually appealing on the inside, and beyond comfortable. It is also stylish on the outside. The overall feel is outstanding – this is a light, sharp-looking vehicle that’s a lot of fun to drive.

  • Mazda CX5: This is a very attractive SUV that delivers everything you expect in a Mazda when it comes to performance. Historically, though, we haven’t found Mazdas to be all that attractive – pleasant-looking, yes, but hardly standouts. That said, we have to admit that this is one gorgeous SUV. We love the lines, and so will most architects.

  • Buick Encore: This entry in the SUV class is really small – but then, do we really need any more gigantic SUVs? You’ll find that this vehicle is still quite roomy, and we’re very partial to the interior – it’s comfortable, and very easy on the eyes. The exterior isn’t hard to look at either. Architects will appreciate this compact SUV.

  • Audi A3: For years, the Audi has been reasonably practical, and fun to drive. It is also beautifully designed and extremely attractive. The A3 has been on the market for a number of years, so you could think of it as an “oldie but goodie.” If you’re in the market for a nice, visually appealing rig, though, definitely give a used A3 a look.

At YourMechanic, we know that architects have a great eye for what is visually appealing. We think that any of these five used vehicles will more than satisfy an architect’s aesthetic requirements.
