MEN spend on average £5k more on their pride and joy than women, according to one survey.
FindYouCars.com recently carried out a survey into the buyer habits of the two sexes and found that, on average, men will spend approximately £14k on their next car. Women, on the other hand, appear to only want to spend a mere £9k.
Men also seem to be far more fussy when buying their car. 67 per cent of men surveyed were ‘resolute’ and ‘pernickety’ about what they’re looking for – twice as picky as women, while men from London seem to be the worst offenders, followed by those in the Midlands.
The survey has also concluded that women rate functionality, practicality and body colours as top requirements, while men deem bigger engines and premium brands as more important.
BMW topped the list as the most desirable brand amongst men, while women chose Volkswagen as their marque of choice, says FindYouCars.com.
