Cars say a lot about the owner. But can you tell what someone does for a living just based on what they drive? And which profession is most likely to drive the stunning Rolls Royce in the image above?
The team at comparethemarket com decided to look into this, so they checked their own data from 20 common occupations to see which are the most popular vehicles in each as well as the occupations most likely to be behind the wheel of certain car brands… here is what they found:
|Brand||Most likely to be driven by|
|Vauxhall||Fast Food Workers|
|Renault||Fast Food Workers|
Somewhat surprisingly, the sparkling Rolls Royce is more likely to be owned by an architect than an accountant or banker.
“We wanted to explore our data to analyse the different cars we drive and the professions we work in. Often, people can get stereotyped when it comes to their car choices with our cars saying a lot about our lifestyle, personality and priorities.
“Sometimes, a particular career can call for a specific design of car; some require more space and some call for efficiency and city driving, whereas others have style as a number one priority.
“While many other factors do come into play such as affordability, space, style and more, it is interesting to see which professions drive which cars! But whatever car you choose, you need to remember to take out car insurance to cover your needs.”
The research also looks at the favourite make and model of 20 common occupations. On the whole, the data showed Ford, in particular the Ford Fiesta, is by far the preferred brand across the majority of jobs.
