One of the biggest staples in a man’s life is his car. Check out a few cars below that a man living the “Argyle Life” could be seen driving.
Our first pick of the draw is the Land Rover.
When it comes to the Range Rover, Land Rover definitely has a leg up on the competition. We’ve been big fans of the Range Rover here at Argyleculture for quite some time, and when we decided to research the new Range Rover, we weren't disappointed. Check out what the all-new 2013 Range Rover has to offer:
The Range Rover now comes equipped with an all responsive LR-V8 5.0 liter engine, which leaves the utmost power in your hands. The exterior design of the Range Rover features with a Dark Atlas front grill, body colored front bumper and vent blades, unlike the older versions, which came with alloy vent blades on the side of the front fenders. They also have featured an all-new panoramic roof, which gives the car a sleek style. Whether you’re on a date or just relieving your mind from a consuming day at the office, it’s a great new feature on the exterior design to stare into the sky and gather your thoughts. You also have two design choices of wheels that will fit to your liking. Wheels range from your standard 19 inch 5 split spoke wheels, 20, 21, and 22 inches.
We personally wouldn’t go past the 20-inch wheel, because we feel that driving a vehicle of this caliber doesn’t need to be styled with obnoxious sized wheels; you’re already making a statement by driving this machine. Simplicity at its best!
If you’d like to customize the interior, you have 3 choices of different colored interiors (Ebony Grained, Almond Grained, or Cirrus Grained), which comes with 3-zone climate control and a heated leather steering wheel. You can’t go wrong with the signature “all black everything” style.
For those of you with families, safety is key. Well, Land Rover has equipped this vehicle with a standard safety package that includes driver and passenger side airbags (side, seat-front, thorax, and pelvis) and power operated child locks to keep the kids safe from opening the doors.

As we were doing our research on cars, we decided to take a look into Cadillac to see what they have cooking in their design rooms, and in doing so, we were introduced to the all-new 2013 CTS Sport Sedan. Check it out…
The CTS Sport Sedan comes with a high responsive, Rear-Wheel Drive 3.0L engine that delivers 270 HP and the 3.6L engine and 318 HP to the wheel. You also have choices of a standard or optional package with different features depending on your taste. There is a choice between three categories: Luxury, Performance, Premium, and the Touring package; all of which include different features depending on what you’re on the market for. A quick highlight on The Touring Package, which comes with an exclusive dark-accented grille, custom 18-inch wheels, pearl nickel finish paint job, and the CTS-V rear spoiler that provides more stability on your driving experience. It’s a great package if you like speed, stability, and driving in style.
The interior of the CTS Sport Sedan definitely caught our attention. Equipped with ambient lighting that gives the car a nice touch and sets the mood when driving through the night. We at Argyleculture feel that it’s all about the small details when it comes to design, whether it’s fashion, cars, eyewear, etc.
Safety on the road is key with any vehicle, so Cadillac provides you with Adaptive Forward Lighting, which helps you see the road better by swiveling the HID (High-Intensity Discharge) headlamps up to 15 degrees while you’re driving. Check out how it works here.

For that young professional who might have just finished college and started their path to success, this next pick is a great and affordable vehicle to start with. It’s compact, quick, and definitely dependable to get you where you need to be. Check out the Mini Cooper S…
This compact car fits anywhere, so for cities where parking may be an issue, you can get yourself this 12 ft 2.8 inch length and 4 ft. 7.4 inch vehicle and fit it anywhere. It has a simple design, but can be customized to your liking. Check out the over 10 million different combinations that you have to reference from here. This is great for those who have always wanted to customize their car to suit their personal taste, or how boss man Russell Simmons would say, to your “flava."
As surprising as this may sound, the Mini Cooper S has more than enough space for you, your passengers, and some luggage to ride comfortably. Equipped with a 5.7 cubic feet cargo space when the back seats are up and a 24 cubic feet space with the seats down, you have more than enough space to pack your car up after a long day of shopping, moving, or camping.
As for safety features for the Mini Cooper, it’s highly equipped with state of the art features. The Runflat Tires feature is great, if you ever catch a flat and refuse to pull over in the middle of the night, they allow you to drive up to 80 miles at 50 mph, giving you more than enough time and distance to get to a tire shop. Automatic wipers and headlamps are great to help you keep focused on the road, so if you’re driving and you run into a down pour, the wipers will automatically turn on and operate at the speed that you’re driving, avoiding you having to manually turn them on.
