Lifeguard (SUV) Description:

Look the part on the beach with the rugged, dune-conquering Lifeguard from Declasse. It may not have the best acceleration, but who cares when it comes with a decorative surfboard to better establish your beach cool? And thanks to the tinted windows, you can look authoritative without having to show off that flabby beach bod.
