Dutch women are more likely to drive an Opel Corsa than any other type of car, with the Volkswagen Golf and Polo in second and third place, according to research by the Dutch car licensing authority RDC quoted by the Telegraaf.
But women are moving towards smaller and more environment-friendly cars, the RDC said. Over the past seven months, the most popular new car among women has been the Toyota Aygo.
In the top 10 list of new cars purchased by women so far this year, seven are now ranked A, or most environment friendly, compared with five a year ago.
Women buying new cars are also younger than men, the research showed. Some 40% of new car purchases have been made by women aged under 45 this year, compared with 22% of cars bought by men.
