QUIZ: Can We Guess What Kind of Car You Drive?

Beep beep. Let’s find out.

YOU KNOW THEY say that owners start looking like their dogs?

Well, we reckon people’s motors are kind of in the same league. Alright, you may not find yourself morphing into a Ford Mondeo any time soon, but cars definitely reflect our personalities and can tell you a lot about their driver.

With that in mind, let’s see if we can guess what your ride is like… Buckle up.

(Pssst – for those reading who don’t own a car, consider this your chance to finally find out what car you might have in a parallel universe.)

1. Be honest now. What's lurking in your boot?
Gym gear, camping bits, wellies, sometimes the dog. And the kitchen sink, basically.
The kids' schoolbags and some reusable bags for the supermarket shop.

Not a lot of space in there for much, really!
God knows. All manner of odds and ends...
2. What type of tunes would you be bopping to while stuck in traffic?
Whatever is on the radio. My CD player is on the fritz.
An audiobook or the Frozen soundtrack.

RTE Radio One.
I have it hooked up to Spotify, so whatever I fancy.
3. What's hanging from your mirror?
Something cool I got given for Christmas.
I've had those furry dice for so long they're practically part of the car.

Something cute that smells nice.
Nada. Nothing. Nowt.
4. What kind of stuff do you usually get up to on the weekends?
Carting the kids around and visiting family.
Something sporty or active most likely.

Recovering from a big night out.
Chilling on the couch as much as humanly possible.
5. Pick a bumper sticker slogan for the back of your rear window.
"Well behaved people rarely make history."
"Watch out for the idiot behind me."

"Baby on board."
I'll pass on the bumper sticker, thanks.
6. Beep beep. Last question. Do you consider yourself a good driver?
Hmm... I'm not sure.

Do you drive... the four-door family car?
The four-door saloon - roomy enough to fit all the family, but still with your personality splashed all over the tape deck. Are we right?

Do you drive... a flash motor?
We're not sure exactly what type, but we get the feeling you're a nippy little two-door type of person. Maybe you even have alloys. Ooh la la.
