What were you thinking about when you bought your last car? Was your mind focused on looking good, or were you just concerned about getting your food shopping in the boot?
A new study by CarGurus has explored the attitudes of UK drivers, and what your car really says about you.
From finding out how people perceive the drivers of certain cars, to learning what the main considerations really are when buying one, here are the key results:
What do drivers care about?
So, if someone can create a nice, interesting, expensive-but-not-flashy, environmentally car that’s perfect to go down to the shops in… you’re on to a winner!
How are drivers perceived?
During the research, the 2,000 drivers surveyed looked at a list of popular car brands and picked the words that they thought describes a driver of that car.
On top of that, Fiat and Mini drivers are seen as young. So, if you’re an older Mini driver, you’ve got that going for you!
This study shows just how much thought goes into buying a new car, with most drivers caring more about the environmental impact and practicality of a car than how flashy it is.
It also shows that food shopping is as important to people as their family and friends!
Whether you’re flashy, practical or just love food…our insurance works for everyone.
