Santa is coming tonight, so we figured to ask you guys this question: What car would you ask for, for Christmas?

Santa is coming tonight, so we figured to ask you guys this question: What car would you ask for, for Christmas?

We will kick things off with our own wishes.

Skoda Superb

I’d go for the new Skoda Superb as it ticks all the right boxes. It’s the most spacious model in its class and has a ridiculously large trunk with a practical hatch opening. It also has a very appealing design and is considerably more affordable than the equivalent VW Passat upon which it is based. Actually, some configurations are cheaper than the significantly smaller Golf. Ok, so it’s not that exciting on the inside as its German sibling, but unless you spend your time touching the plastics to see how soft these are, it’s more than decent. On top of that, it has a detachable boot light and an ice scraper in the fuel cap that doubles as a magnifying glass. How could you possibly want more?

Porsche Boxster Spyder

I’ve been pretty good this year. I mean, haven’t been overly bad, at any rate. The long and short of it is: If Santa is going to bring me wheels, I’m going to expect something pretty exciting. And yet, with humble-but-glorious offerings like the Superb on this list, I’d hate to be seen as greedy…

The Boxster Spyder then, it’s the prefect compromise car. Sure, here in the U.S. it’ll run you more than eighty grand, but as far as Porsches go these days, that’s a bargain. Cooler and better handling than the 911 Cabriolet, the Spyder is still damn fast and massively tactile. And in the standard white paint it’ll look phenomenal with a big red bow on it. Thanks, Santa!

Lotus 2-Eleven

Goodbye practicality, hello mid-life crisis! My dream Christmas gift car from the fat guy up North would be a track-focused Lotus 2-Eleven. The kids are older now and the domestic suburbia hauler is no longer a priority. So it's time to have some fun, make new friends at the track, and totally humiliate myself.

Damaged ego aside, I'll still love every second of it just to experience the thrill of an open cockpit rocket with a supercharged engine making 252 horsepower (188 kilowatts). Based on the Lotus Exige S, the 2-Eleven weighs only 1,477 pounds (670 kilograms). That's good for a 325hp/ton power-to-weight ratio and a screaming 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds. But who cares about 0-60 in a dedicated track car? It's all about pure driving experience with precision handling and powerful fade-free brakes.

Granted, they don't make the 2-Eleven anymore, but in 2011 just over $60,000 (£40,000) got you a street-legal version that you can drive to the track. Nowadays, you can find them for around $44,500 (£30,000). But wait! Isn't the new 3-Eleven starting production in February? That's only in 2 months, but 10 months for the next Christmas to come around. Oh, never mind, a Skoda Superb will be fine...

BMW 3-Series

Because it’s old school – it has a classic parking brake (not a button), the old iDrive infotainment system with undersized display, and analog instrument cluster. There are no tablets, no massaging seats, no interior perfume – because it’s focused on driving, not cruising. Just the pure joy of sitting behind the wheel of a rear-wheel-driven machine with direct steering and precise suspension, no matter if you go for the sedan or the station wagon.

Because it’s four-years-old now and still feels a lot better to drive than the new Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. And, on top of that, it’s the perfect daily ride when equipped with a diesel engine – easily returning up to 35-40 miles per gallon combined and capable of carrying most of your weekend baggage.
So, dear Santa – a 330d Touring in performance blue will be the perfect one for me, but a sedan will also be fine. You know my address, I’ll be waiting for you.

Range Rover

Like jolly old Saint Nick, I hail from a land of ice and snow so I'd take something powerful, luxurious, and capable of handling the worst that Mother Nature can dish out.  There are a handful of models that fit this criteria but the Range Rover stands out thanks to its winning combination of practicality and iconic design.

While it may not be the newest or flashiest choice, the Range Rover is an excellent all-rounder that can easily handle the humdrum tasks of daily life while still being perfectly suited for a night on the town. So I'll take a long-wheelbase Range Rover Autobiography with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that cranks out 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque.

Now that we've shared our desires, we are curious to find out your wishes. So, which one would it be?
