The old banger...
If you're still trundling around in the old reliable that's done you for a decade because you don't need anything better, then it's definitely making a statement. It's telling people that cars and fashion are not at the centre of your life. You're perfectly happy with a car that serves its purpose, even if it's a little lacking in style or flair. You're a reliable type of person who will always be there for others when the chips are down, unlikes some more transient friends who might take off when something better appeals.
The flash sports car
At the opposite end of the spectrum sits our sports car driver. FLashy, obsessed with labels and status and keen to show you just how fast the car can go from 0-60 between intersections, Mr Sports Car is one of the less lovable characters on the road. However, when they invite you into their car to take a ride. Suddenly, you might start to see the point of the tens of thousands of pounds that they've spent on their car. Getting from 0-60 in considerably less time than your VW Polo suddenly seems totally worth it.
The family runaround
Some people choose to put their family at the centre of their lives, others have little choice. Either way, if you're driving an MPV then you're showing that your family are very important to you. Mr family man may well spend much of his day shuttling between schools, friends' houses, after-school clubs and other engagements. The kids might not say it, but you're the hero who helps to keep their life on track. They'll thank you for it one day, even if it takes them 20 years to realise just what a great dad you were.
Perhaps, by now you're starting to think about what your car is saying about you. If you feel you need a change of wheels then take a look at Compact Cars, they have plenty of options that will really grab the attention of fellow motorists.
