When It Comes to Cars, Men Like Em Big, Women Like Em Useful

A while back, TrueCar.com looked at the kinds of cars men and women were buying in 2011, and what they found will shock exactly no one reading this blog. Men gravitated toward cars that at least looked sporty or toward big trucks and SUVs. Women preferred cars that could be used for work, kid taxi, girls’ night out, plant hauling from the garden center, and every other task on our to-do lists, without sucking up gasoline like teenagers and two-liters of soda.

The women’s top five:

  • Volvo S40 (2011 was its final year of production) – 58% of purchasers are women
  • Volkswagen Eos convertible
  • Nissan Rogue
  • Volkswagen Beetle
  • Hyundai Tuscon

The men’s top five:

  • Porsche 911 – 88% of purchasers are men
  • GMC Sierra
  • Ford F-Series
  • Chevy Corvette
  • Chevy Silverado
