What your car says about you

Last updated on November 25th, 2021 at 09:08 am by Bill Tsouvalas

If you have ever driven around before, either you or someone you know has made an off-hand comment about the driver behind the wheel of certain make or model of car. For better or worse, the car that you choose to drive does say a lot about you. After all, part of your personality was attracted to that car in the first place!

According to a small-scale British study, 57% of Britons believe the type of car someone drives effects how attractive they are. That’s far and above their job and intelligence (21 and 17% a piece!) Here’s a tongue-in-cheek look about what your car says about you.

Any mini-van

Very much married with a whole brood of children. Looking for a good time? Run far, far away.

A Volvo

Sorry, I drifted off. Please, keep describing your stamp collection.

Toyota Prius

The Prius is universally known as the effete, trendy latte-sippers’ car. The Prius is driven by people who describe themselves as a “bit of a greenie.” Of course, they’ve never touched a garden unless it was sat on their balcony.

Rolls Royce

A Rolls is the spoils from a lifetime of filling teeth or adding up numbers. Back in his day, the teeth were filled with lead and there were no such thing as calculators.

Sports car, like a Lamborghini or Porsche

A Porsche or Lambo is the tried-and-true mid-life crisis car. The top is certainly down yet there’s no wind flowing through the driver’s hair. Its possible there’s none left for the wind to touch.

A sub-compact older than 1990

A beat-up, paint-chipped sub-compact is last choice car for anyone. That is, except a newly minted P-Plater. They’ll crunch through the gears on the highway as they struggle to meet 100km/h, even half way. But it gets teens from A to B. Most of the time.


Nothing screams suburban success more than an SUV. Whether it’s dropping Cassidy and Portia off at soccer practice or popping into the salon for a manicure, the SUV is a needless indulgence the driver feels they truly deserve.

Ford Falcon Ute

A bloke is driving it. He’s either hauling slabs of bricks or slabs of beers. It hasn’t been cleaned since he got it. Sometimes used for transport to the big match. 

Mini Cooper

Skinny, mustachioed men and waif-like girls with oversized glasses cruise around in Minis, looking for an obscure nightspot or café serving poached eggs with a quinoa side dish. Possible they may run into Ms.
