Prestige car favourites of drivers - by their star signs

Europcar, car hire services in Europe, has consulted the stars in its latest research, which looks at the top Prestige rentals according to the star signs of renters. When it comes to luxury on four-wheels, Capricorns and Geminis dominate, scoring the most rentals on almost every vehicle in the Europcar Prestige fleet.

In its analysis of nearly 8,000 Prestige rentals, Europcar found that the normally cautious, conventional and serious Capricorn was the biggest renter of Prestige models as a whole, accounting for 20% of all reservations.

Capricorns also seem to be big fans of the sports cars in the Europcar Prestige fleet. Capricorns account for 82% of rentals of the Audi TT Coupe. It’s a similar story for the Porsche Boxster with Capricorns making 30% of bookings; the next closest renter of the performance coupe is Cancer at just 9% of all rentals of this model.
Gemini, the curious, changeable and expressive star sign, also dominates the Europcar Prestige rental chart, scoring 12% of all rentals. Whilst Capricorn favours the sporty models, restless Gemini prefers the sleek and elegant Mercedes C Class which represented 26% of all models hired by this star sign. The Mercedes E Class and S Class also scored highly with customers born under the Gemini star sign.

The fun and quirky BMW MINI Cooper S is the favourite with artistic Librans and passionate Scorpios, whilst daring Sagittarians favour the space and practicality of the Mercedes M Class.

It seems that no star sign can resist the pure decadence and performance of the Mercedes S Class, with drivers born under the Virgo, Taurus, Aries, Aquarius, Cancer and Leo star signs all making it their top rental choice.

“No matter what star sign our customers are, Europcar’s Prestige rental fleet offers a choice of some of the most desirable cars on the road today”, said Ken McCall, Managing Director of Europcar UK Group. “Whether it’s turning heads, indulging in the ultimate driving experience or just arriving in style and comfort, Europcar has the right vehicle for even the most discerning star sign.”
