New research* suggests that male 4×4 drivers should reconsider their choice of motor if they want to impress the ladies.
A survey into the sexiest cars, reveals that women tend to be drawn to men who drive smaller cars, whilst larger models such as 4x4s, did not appear to capture as much female interest, coming bottom in the ranks as the least likely car to attract the opposite sex*. In contrast 1 in 5 women admitted that they were most likely to be wooed by a green car*.
Carcraft spokesperson Howard Ryder emphasised the point that not only do greener, smaller cars have more “curb- appeal,” but that they are also cheaper to run.*
The RAC Foundation supports the move to more environmentally friendly cars and these survey findings indicate that people’s views are starting to change. Big is not necessarily best making the traditional “macho” car sterotype more of a quaint old fashioned idea than a real life phenomenon.
