About This Quiz

Ever since the internal combustion engine was born, cars have transformed the lives of billions of people. Even though the average consumer-owned vehicle spends only 4% of its time in use - and thus 96% of its time just sitting on a driveway or in a parking garage - and even though the overwhelming majority of journeys are under a couple of miles, people are enormously sentimental about their cars. It's generally the third-biggest purchase you'll ever make, after only your home and your education. Your car is an accessory, a brand statement, a financial decision, and a way to get from A to B, all rolled into one. That means it's important to choose a car that matches your personality.

Some people need a big, flashy vehicle that commands attention and dominates the road. Others need something elegant, understated, and high-quality, to convey their class and their lack of interest in showing off. Some people want a car that gets top-notch mileage or perhaps doesn't use fossil fuels at all, to assert their green cred and know that their journeys don't take too much of a toll on the Earth. And some just want any old hunk of junk that'll get them around in relative safety. Tell us about your car and we'll tell you what you're telling the world with your choice!
