They say you are what you eat, but surely it’s also true that you are what you drive?
Ahead of Father’s Day on Sunday, the people at a nationwide car hire firm seem to think this too. Europcar has placed dads into four different categories in the run-up to Father’s Day.
Here are the four categories…
The Culture Vulture: This is the dad who likes the finer things in life, like opera, theatre, high-class luxury retreats or eating at swanky restaurants. But what car could suit such a character? Step forward, the Mercedes E-Class.
The James Bond wannabe: Is your dad the suave type who is more comfortable with a medium-dry vodka Martini in his hand than a pint of beer? Could you see him as a secret agent working undercover for MI6? Then which sports car would be right up his street? Try the Porsche Boxster.
The cool and hip type: This dad might not be the same age as you, but that won’t stop him trying to act it. He’ll have a designer wardrobe and probably all the latest sounds on his in-car playlist too. But what motor could pander to such a contemporary personality? The Audi A3 should do the trick.
The outdoor, rugged adventurer: You’ll probably get out of breath spending just five minutes with this all-action dad. If this Bear Grylls disciple isn’t surfing the Cornish waves one minute, he’s camping under the stars the next. That’s why he’d appreciate a 4×4 for the day and what better than Volvo’s XC90?
Which one is your dad?
