What A Woman's Car Says About Her

Advice Seeker :
Dear April Masini,

I am looking to buy a new car, but I want to get one that describes me as a woman, mother, and wife. For instance, I don’t want to get a mini-van because it just screams soccer mom and doesn’t say anything about me as a fun loving wife, etc. Are there certain types of cars that will definitely say something about me?

Sincerely,  Multi-Talented Woman on Board


April Masini's Advice :

Dear Multi-Talented Woman on Board,

Yes! The type of car you drive does say something about the woman behind the driver's wheel. So, if you're trying to tell people something about yourself, make sure you know what your car is telling people.

 What these cars say about women

An Escalade - You're worth tons of money, but you're still a mom underneath all the trappings. The Escalade and other monster SUVs with all the bells and whistles of a luxury car, but the body of a bruiser, are for women who want to flaunt their wealth, live the good life, but still hit Target, Little League practice, and fast food stops for all the little critters and their neighborhood friends strapped in the back seats. 

A Prius - Earth woman. Notice I didn't say earth mother. These cars are for Sheryl Crow (pre-baby adoption) and Sheryl Crow (post adoption). Anyone who cares about the environment, loves being green, and donates to Save the Whales, Heal The Bay, or Greenpeace, will be driving a Prius or any other hybrid.

 A Volvo - Smug, sophisticate with good breeding. Women who drive Volvos -- coupes or station wagons -- or even Volvo SUVs -- are telling the world that they have taste with a capital T. They frown at anyone with flash or bling.

 A convertible - Sexual adventuress! The top comes down. Need I say more?

 Black Beemers or black Mercedes - You can compete with the big boys. For women, this car is the equivalent of the red corvette for men.
