British insurance company Confused.com say they know the most popular car choices for the twelve signs of the Zodiac.
Aquarians, known for their eccentric streak, are 30% more likely to drive a Peugeot than any other star sign. A Rover 620 is likely to be their second choice.
Pisces, who are often regarded as alluring individuals, are most likely to be seen in a sporty little number. Research shows that drivers of a Mazda 2 Sport are 31% more likely to be Pisceans, who celebrate their birthday from 20th February to 20th March.
Always in search of adventure, the car of choice for an Aries is a Daewoo Kalos or an Alfa Romeo.
Taureans widely regarded as cool, calm and collected individuals, which is reflected in the most popular choice of car the Mazda 2 Tamura.
Geminis, described as curious, thirsty for knowledge and mischievous, are most likely to be seen in a Hyundai 130 Comfort than other star signs.
Motorists carrying the Cancer star sign are most likely to drive a Vauxhall to complement their caring and sensitive side.
Regarded as charismatic and fortunate, it is no surprise that Leos are more likely to drive a Land Rover than other star signs. The classic car complements their traits perfectly.
Virgo drivers, described as confident, successful and creative, are more likely to drive a Lexus and Scorpions, who are known to be wise, are 40% more likely than other star signs to drive a Fiat 500, an economical car.
Vauxhall Corsa is the most popular car choice of the thoughtful and happy-go-lucky Librans. Sagittarians are 30% more likely than average to drive a Subaru Optimistic than other star signs.
Capricorns are most likely to drive a Volkswagen Beetle, the popular car that makes a statement. This contradicts their seemingly quiet nature.
Yasmin Boland of Moonology.com said of the findings: “It’s very interesting to see the research here – there’s no doubt that astrology is a good predictor of so many personality traits, including which car you’re likely to drive, to how many speeding tickets you are likely to get.
“Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) are the speedy people. Water signs (Cancer and Scorpio) are the ones who want safety and comfort. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are the ones who get the parking tickets because they get so caught up in what they’re doing they forget the time. And Earth signs (Taureans, Virgos and Capricorns) portray a cool persona and are easy going people, which is reflected in their choice of car.”
Gareth Kloet, Head of car insurance at Confused.com, added, “A person’s choice of car has always been a topic of discussion and many people make judgments about the car people choose to drive. It’s interesting to know that the star sign you are born under can be a trigger to your choices.”
Our own inhouse astrologer Seer Sive says,”As much as people challenge their star sign systems, the truth is that similar star signs do share traits, and number crunching across thousands and thousands of purchased items can show this in fascinating ways. Here, the stats apply to cars. But you can repeat this experiment across any product: holidays, food choices, house choices, and you will get the same result. The result is, of course, that our personalities are influenced by what time of year we were born.”
