Love at First Drive – Car Survey Results
With Valentine’s Day just gone, we thought we’d find out Britain’s most loved car and if motorists love their car more than their partner…
As time goes on, there is much more that goes into buying or leasing a car than simply reliability. Whilst that is one of the most important factors, there is much more choice in today’s markets, including performance, brand, design, speed and comfort.
And whilst many motorists love their cars, just how many of them would swap them for something a little nicer? Or perhaps they’d rather spend Valentine’s Day driving around the streets with their number one (the car that is), rather than being cuddled up on the sofa...
When it comes to cars, there are so many to choose from and the options are endless, but which brand comes out on top? In our recent survey, results show that the most loved car brand among women is Volkswagen, whilst men prefer Ford - but what’s your favourite?
Our results also show that for people aged 17-25, the most loved car was a Vauxhall Corsa and for those ages 26-35, they just couldn’t decide between Ford, Kia, Mini and Toyota! And with so many options and opportunities, we can see why it’s such a difficult decision to make.
Whilst Ford came out on top as the most loved car brand, a Range Rover was the popular choice for many people’s dream car. For many, dream cars typically consist of a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, but times are changing as are the needs of drivers and motorists. And our survey showed just that, as results show that most women dream about owning an Audi, whilst men would prefer a Tesla.
And those that took part in our survey aged between 17-25 said that their dream cars would be an Audi or a Range Rover, and the dream car of those aged between 26-35 and 36-45 is also a Tesla. With many drivers now becoming much more eco-conscious, they are looking to make efforts in reducing emissions and are seeking to contribute to a healthier environment, and the results of this survey are proof of that.
Although many motorists fantasise about owning their dream premium car, 78.26% of people also said that they love their current car and are happy to hit the road in it. But, for the 22% of people that aren’t too sure, or aren’t entirely thrilled with their current set of wheels, we have plenty of premium and luxury cars available to lease at an affordable price.
When it comes to cars, there are so many reasons as to why a driver loves (or doesn’t love) their car.
Results from our recent survey show that more than 39% of people love their car for its sleek design and look and 17% of drivers love their car for its reliability and again, for its driving performance.
Men and women may look for different things when searching for a new set of wheels, and to prove that, results show that 42% of women that took part in our survey love their car for its design and look, compared to just 35% of men. However, more than 23% of men love their car for its performance whilst out on the road, compared to just 14% of women.
So, what do you look for in a car? And would you buy a car just to impress your partner? Well, over 10% of women and almost 12% of men would…
And for many, a car is their pride and joy. So much so, that more than 30% of people have given their car a name.
But just how many drivers love their car more than their partner?
Almost 4% of people who took part in our survey said that they love their car more than their partner, whilst for 7% of participants, “it’s complicated”…
So, what’s your relationship with your car? Are you taken, looking for a new love, or is it complicated?
