Top 10 things Metro Detroit women would like to see in their vehicles:
1. Place for purse or briefcase
2. General storage space
3. Cell phone port or built-in phone
4. Trash bin
5. Satellite radio or TV features
6. Global positioning navigation system
7. Computer port or storage
8. Better, more flexible cupholders
9. Improved windshield wipers
10. Handheld device (Palm, BlackBerry, etc.) port

Sounds like women want an office on wheels.

I love how things like bench seats are considered practicle by the writer, but buckets aren't. As though a comfortable and safe driving position are somehow superfluous. Some people will just never get it.

if you ask me most women have a hard enough time just driving let alone worrying about all that other stuff, i am fearing for my life most times that i am in a car with women drivers.[

You can say the same thing for a lot of men

On a scale of 1 to 10, Spinella said, surveys have shown women on average rate the bench seat an 8, because it enables them to place items conveniently within reach of the driver.
Men, meanwhile, tend to think the bench seat is lame, rating it a 2.2. Males prefer the appearance of bucket seats, giving them a 6.3, while women rate separated seats at a 3.4.

There is something to be said for a seat that will properly support your body, both in terms of comfort and safety. A bench seat is hardly practical for those who travel long distances or spend lots of time in their car for ergonomic reasons. Almost no cars have bench seats in the front, and thats likely for a *gasp* practical reason, not because all men think bench seats are 'lame'....

If they want TV, tell 'em to move to Europe/the UK.
Not uncommon to see higher end cars w/nav systems that also have TV reception when parked.
Trash bin--while I agree that's a useful feature, it always surprises me how many more women than men I know that have lots of trash in their cars. Used coffee cups, fast food wrappers, junk mail, random pieces of paper...are my female aquaintances especially slobby? Or is this more common overall?

Re: What a girl wants, what a girl needs... (SeattleGLI)

Bench seats rule, IMO. I don't mean the sort of bench seats you'd find on a base pickup though. My beater car is a 97 Taurus that has two front buckets with a flat upholstered surface between them, plus an armrest that flips up, essentially making it a bench seat. Great for making out and stuff.

The cool thing is that the flat upholstered surface flips out and forward to become a console with storage and cupholders. I have to say, Ford designers were really on the ball with that one.
So basically, my Taurus has the best of both worlds.

"No purse place," says Denesha Evans of Westland as she checks out a $150,000 Bentley Continental GT. Women say they'd like more storage space, better windshield wipers and computer ports.

Ummm... What car has a dedicated "purse place"? Why can't she just put it on the passenger's seat, on the backseat, on the floor behind the driver's seat or into the trunk? I don't see any other places in other cars either.

They forgot to add:
11. Large three way mirror that folds out of the visor and covers the entire windshield, providing an acceptable makeup station.
12. 110V outlet that can drive a hair dryer.
13. Little palm rest to apply nail polish.
14. Fold out manicur tool set.
15. Little mascara holder that folds out of the dash.
16. Fold out lip stick set.
17. Visor mounted eyebrow plucker.
Etc., etc., etc.
