Kbb.com's Editors Choose This Year's Romantic Cars

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Kelley Blue Book www.kbb.com, the leading provider of new- and used-vehicle information, today announces 10 Romantic Rides for 2009. With cars and romance being a time-proven pairing, and the Valentine's Day holiday weekend fast approaching, the kbb.com editors compiled a list of various new cars inspiring romance that are ripe to play prominently in the memories of tomorrow.

"So many people have romantic feelings tied to cars, whether it is the thought of what a car represents at a certain time in a person's life, an activity they are passionate about, or perhaps the memory of a long drive with a special someone," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book and kbb.com. "When compiling the 10 Romantic Rides list, we shot our Cupid's arrows in a variety of directions, targeting vehicles suitable for the romantic maneuvering of a wide cross-section of the populace. Some will seek romance in a small, fuel-efficient hybrid while others might have a similar experience in a high-performance sports car, but with Valentine's Day upon us, love is in the air...and on the road."
