What Does Your Car Say About Your Personality?

Here's a recap of five of the most popular cars in the UK and what they reveal about those driving them!

A car is more than just a car; it is a space where you can be your true self, sing at the top of your lungs, set out on trips wherever your heart desires and much more. But, more importantly, aspects such as the specific model or colour of a car says a lot about its owner's personality and can have an impact on how people perceive them.

We’re not making this up; a 2010 study by the University of Florida confirmed that our brains tend to identify human and animal faces in the front end of cars, and then associate the car with a certain personality. This is why, whether consciously or unconsciously, we purchase cars we feel connected with. And when we ‘assign’ a personality to a car, this is actually a reflection of ours. 

In this article, we have made a recap of five of the most popular cars in the UK and what they reveal about those driving them. Keep reading and find out something about yourself!

Mini Cooper Convertible 

If this is a car you want to get your hands on, you are likely proud of being English and also highly organised and mindful. 

Practicality is your thing and you don’t like spending time searching for a parking space; you like efficiency and good performance. This car says you are fun and cool. You like the wind to rush through your hair even though you can only have the roof down once or twice a year thanks to the wonderful English weather. 

Nissan Juke

Family-driven, adventurous, stylish. 

A one-off car that says you prioritise safety and want a comfortable car to fit your family, your dog, and even your friends, but without ever losing style and always making a statement everywhere you go. You are easy going, carefree, and love comfort. 

Ford Fiesta 

Youthful, reliable, non-judgmental.

This is among the most popular cars in the UK today, especially among younger drivers. Those who drive it don’t really care about what others think about them. This is a compact car that comes with a highly reliable engine that will always get the job done.
