German term or phrase: Zwei Herzen schlagen in seiner Brust
I know that meaning of this expression in German is:

Jemand mag / liebt zwei Dinge gleichermaßen, kann diese aber nicht immer miteinander vereinbaren.

However, I cannot seem to come up with an equivalent English expression or a catchy saying that would work in this context.

This is essentially a marketing text with a few technical details from an automotive magazine about a station wagon that performs like a sports car.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
