Small cars

Small car owners are city slickers. The smaller the vehicle, the easier it is to navigate traffic jams and squeeze into the perfect spot in a busy parking lot.

For those who drive an SUV, safety is essential. SUVs take up a little extra space on the roads and sit higher to give you a better view. An SUV is perfect for smaller families as it combines safety with space. But don’t let the protective nature of the vehicle fool you. SUV drivers are ready to go anywhere, whether it’s the arena for hockey practice or a remote cabin. SUVs are trusted by adventurers, as their higher clearance is great on the road and off. 

Luxury cars

Luxury cars are a status symbol. Drivers of luxury cars are high achievers, who value comfort and appreciate the finer things in life. Luxury car drivers like to make a statement without being too flashy. They know they have expensive taste, but they care about craftsmanship and the quality of their vehicle.  

Classic or antique cars
