What Does A Type Of Car Say About Your Personality? 

We choose the type of car because it suits our lifestyle choices. Find out what your choice says about you:

Hatchback

This small and nippy option suits the on-the-go kind of person. Impression is not what you are looking for, but getting from A to B is number one on your priority list. You are all about practicality and you are an animal and environment lover who is very aware of environmental conservation.

Sedan

You are all about balance and practicality. You like comfort and space but image is important to you. You are moderately obsessed with status and expensive brands.

Convertible

You enjoy your life and you are a go-getting who wants to live your life to the fullest. Although you live a comfortable life, you enjoy living life in the fast lane while the wind blows through your hair. New adventures and exotic places are top of your itinerary.

SUV

You don't like to be restricted in your life, be it from your job, your living quarters and even your car. You prefer bigger cars that are both spacious and luxurious. You love adventure so road-tripping is definitely on your list of weekend plans on a regular basis.

Minivan

Mom car. This would have been the initial assumption of most people, however nowadays this is not the case. You might be a parent with a big family, but if not, you are definitely considering of having lots of kids and pets. You have a ridiculously fast-paced lifestyle and the only time you get to think straight is in the shower. You are extremely caring and you are so concerned about everyone else that life quickly passes you by without you finding time for yourself.

Sports car

Your car is like your sanctuary. If you could, you would live in your car. You love driving just for the sake of driving. You are a natural born leader with a youthful zest for life. You are also a serious risk taker. That's probably how you got the expensive car you drive. It worked out once, but just be careful not to take too many risks.

What About Car Brands?

Are you brand loyal even if it comes to your vehicle? Well have you ever wondered why you subconsciously are attracted to a certain brand of motor vehicle. We might have the answer...

Volkswagen

BMW

You are knowledgeable and book smart. You are a success in your working environment even though you might not have been in your company for too long. You find yourself in an architectural or accounting environment where numbers and accuracy matters. Although you have stress and pressure at work, you are still very aware of the latest trends. On weekends you find yourself surrounded by successful people at trendy bars when you aren't exercising.
