2016 Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler was named the “4×4 of the Decade” by Four Wheeler Magazine, and the “Off-Road Utility Vehicle of Texas” by the Texas Auto Writers Association, so you know it has the capability to handle nearly anything you throw its way. Whether you’re looking to take your friends and a few surfboards to the beach or you’re ready to head off-road for some camping, the Wrangler can get you there. With its 3.6-liter engine for towing up to 3,500 pounds, enough space for just over 70 cubic feet of stuff, and features like the Sunrider® or the Freedom Top® top, you can get the benefits of a convertible with the Jeep utility you expect.

Edmunds says there is “plenty to love about this unique, characterful, capable and unabashedly all-American SUV.”

For those who don’t like blending in, the two-passenger 2016 Nissan 370Z® Roadster is a great choice. Top-down driving excitement comes courtesy of a 332-hp V6 engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic with Downshift Rev matching and manual shift mode.

Nissan has never been one to shy away from doing things a bit differently, and that’s apparent with the styling of the 370Z Roadster. It’s low and wide, with a shape that cheats the wind, aiding in fuel efficiency and improving the overall experience. Available features, including a Nissan Hard Drive Navigation system with voice recognition, climate-controlled sport seats and a Bose® audio system, make every drive more convenient and comfortable, too.

2016 Porsche Boxster

For enthusiasts, there is arguably no better sports car for the money than the Porsche Boxster. Named the “No. 1 Luxury Sports Car” by U.S. News & World Report, the 2016 Porsche Boxster has a blend of power, efficiency and driving dynamics that few others can match. And since it’s a Porsche, customization options are abundant, from wheels and seats to audio systems and even exterior paint colors. Up to 375 horses thunder out of the Boxster six-cylinder engine, and after one test drive you’ll be sure to want more.

“Stylish, luxurious and thrilling to drive, the 2016 Porsche Boxster comes up aces. Sports cars don’t get much better than this,” adds Edmunds.

2016 Fiat 500X

The warmer weather and longer days are reason enough to take an extra day off and spend some quality time enjoying all that nature has to offer. Here are a few vehicles that can help make your summer even more enjoyable.For something a bit different, you should consider the 2016 Fiat 500X. It’s fun to drive, visually appealing and small enough to navigate the urban jungles of clogged metropolises, while still able to carry up to five people with plenty of room for your stuff. You can add all-wheel drive for even more performance and all-weather traction. But the best part of the 500X is its Italian design that doesn’t require you to spend big bucks.

“Based on looks, price and value, the 2016 Fiat 500X has all the makings of a hit as an early entry into a rapidly expanding market segment,” says Kelley Blue Book. “Even against competitors like the upcoming Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3, the new Fiat 500X makes a good case for itself as an American Fiat. Stiff suspension or not, the combination of value and style will be hard to ignore.”

There are plenty of good choices to help you enjoy your summer drives, but one of the best ways to ensure you won’t overpay is to get a loan from Colonial. Rates are traditionally competitive, and once you’re approved for a loan, you can shop for the car of your dreams with confidence. Ready for the next step? Apply online today.
