Infotainment System

What better way to set the mood than with some good music? The entertainment system in your car can come in handy if you need to keep the conversation going. Some cars have premium speakers that provide clear and crisp sound, like the Lexus LS 500's 24-speaker Mark Levinson Quantum Logic Immersion (QLI) Reference. You can even play a classic romantic movie on the huge LCDs in some cars that support DVD playback. Plus, some infotainment systems are even internet-connected, so you can stream your favorite tunes.

Tip: Don't forget to go incognito and clear your browsing history, as well.

Foldable Seats

For adventurous couples, extra space for your bags and other items is a must. Cars like the Volkswagen Tiguan offer foldable second-row seats that maximize the car's storage capacity. You can even play board games, eat ice cream, or read books in the extra space. Just make sure to vacuum the mats to avoid any chaffing.

Tip: Aside from washing your car, make sure your mats are vacuumed to avoid chaffing.

Dual Climate Control System

Automatic Climate Control

Nothing beats a stress-free ride than a comfortable temperature. The SsangYong Musso's automatic climate control ensures that you'll stay cool and cozy, whether it's a hot day or a chilly night. And if things really heat up, the car even has seat coolers to keep you cool.

Tip: If your car has a defogger, use it.

Sunroof in SUV


For couples who want to feel like they're outdoors, the GAC GA4's sunroof offers a stunning view of the sky. Whether it's a blue-painted sky or star-filled night, the sunroof is sure to set the mood for a romantic ride. Just make sure you're not driving while enjoying the view.

Tip: If you choose to enjoy the view, make sure you're not driving.

Captain seats in vehicle

Captin Seats

For a comfortable, lazyboy-like experience, the Honda Odyssey's leather-clad captain seats on its second row are the perfect choice. The seats are soft to the touch and fully reclinable, giving passengers a luxurious ride. Just make sure to have a driver for the night.

Tip: You need to get a driver for this. A quiet one.
