A Car and Its Rider: Personality Traits of Toyota Vehicle DriversBy marian on July 10th, 2015
Don’t judge a driver by the car he or she owns—unless it’s a Toyota! Believe it or not, you can almost always tell someone’s personality based on the Toyota vehicle they own. For example, drivers of those Toyota Fortuners in the Philippines are known to be adventurous yet composed.
But what about other Toyota vehicles, you might ask? What kind of personalities do their owners exhibit? To answer these questions, let’s take a sneak peek at some Toyota models—and the characteristics their drivers usually possess.
Toyota Camry: The Carefree
The Toyota Camry is an elegant and efficient machine, so much so that it’s easy to think that its drivers are too self-absorbed and hung up with their image. But contrary to popular belief, Camry owners are actually happy and happy-go-lucky. In fact, statistics say that 79% of Camry owners sing while driving! This is because they are very much content with their machine. But if you still don’t believe that, let’s take a look at one Camry owner, Johnny P from Virginia. He has traveled 440,000 miles on his 1995 Camry! If you don’t know what satisfaction is, I don’t know what is!
Toyota RAV4: The Resilient
SUV’s are known for their versatility, as they are able to handle whatever terrain and weather condition they have to confront. This is why many Toyota owners and enthusiasts pick vehicles like the RAV4 as their hot ride. Owning these set of wheels makes them feel undaunted by bad situations, as well as strong and surefooted. It also enables them to inspire others to have the same strength and certainty, and they like being able to carry the most important people in their lives when the going gets tough and rough.
Toyota Prius: The Eco-Friendly
When it comes to environmental issues, especially greenhouse gases and carbon emissions, automobiles have been taking a lot of blame. Thankfully, the industry, especially Toyota, has been making ways to make cars less and less associated with air pollution and energy wasting. A good example of this is the Toyota Prius, a popular eco-friendly and energy-efficient hybrid car. People who choose this car gets labeled as environmentally concerned tree-huggers. In a sense, the stereotype is true, which is a good thing for once.
Toyota Vios: The Reliable
The Toyota Vios is always the perfect choice when it comes to smooth yet fun driving. The fact that it’s one of the highest-selling vehicles in the country is proof of that. So when you see a Toyota Vios on the street, it’s somehow safe to assume that its driver is going for reliability without compromising the enjoyment of driving. This balanced feeling of security and fun extends to their passengers—a truth that a lot of people can attest to.
You really can’t tell what a person is like when he or she is behind the wheel and the windshield. And one is not exactly like the other, even if they’re both driving the same brand and model. One thing’s for sure, though: Toyota drivers have great taste!
