Which car is mas macho? The Porsche 911 is bought by men nine out of 10 times.
And how about for women? Women bought another German, the Volkswagen New Beetle, in six out of 10 cases. No wonder that the new version of the Beetle, being unveiled in two weeks, was teased on Oprah Winfrey's daily TV estrogen fest.
TrueCar.com, which decided which cars are most popular by gender, reaches the broad conclusion that "the study shows that women car buyers are more cost-conscious and purchased fuel-efficient vehicles while male buyers were completely the opposite, purchasing vehicles that were either big and brawny, like a large truck, or chose a high-priced, high-performance vehicle," said Jesse Toprak, a TrueCar vice president.
As far as brands go, women preferred:
They liked the Mini in the greatest numbers, followed by Kia, and Honda. The top brands for men were Ferrari, Lotus, Lamborghini, Maybach and Rolls Royce.
As for individual models, the top picks for women were the Volkswagen New Beetle, Kia Spectra, Nissan Rogue, Volkswagen Eos, Hyundai Entourage, Volvo S40, Jeep Compass, Honda CR-V, Nissan Sentra, and Hyundai Tucson. For men, it was Porsche 911, GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Corvette, Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-Series, BMW M3, Ford Ranger, Toyota Tundra, Dodge Ram and Audi S5.
