John and Jane represent the average man and woman in Britain. Here’s some snapshots, all based on national averages.
John is most likely to drive a:

Jane is most likely to drive a:

Interestingly, we found only 6% of service providers surveyed were found to give the same quota to both genders.
And, finally, the main event:
Based on studies of which colour, manufacturer and car type that both genders find the most attractive, we’ve combined all to create the car each gender most would want their other half to drive!
Remember, these are all just national averages!
