German term or phrase: alltagstauglich
Mit dem neuen XY (Automodell) führt Z (Hersteller) die Interpretation eines alltagstauglichen Hochleistungssportwagens fort.

What they mean is that the new model is an "alltagstaugliche" version of a high-performance sports car

I found "serviceable" but that does not really fit.

Thanks for your help.
