New York, Apr 23: A new survey has shown that women are far more attracted to guys who drive something more practical, like a Prius. A Harris poll commissioned by dating site AnastasiaDate found that a majority of women associate fancy cars with negative character traits, the New York Post reported.

56 percent view men who drive exotic or fast cars as being show-offs or arrogant, and 17 percent perceive them as being insecure. Almost half of women say that a guy’s car reflects his economic status. Forty-six percent said that it reflects a guy’s image of himself. Eleven percent believe that the car reflects the guy’s feelings about having a family.

Only about one-fifth of women say that they have found a man more attractive after seeing the type of car that he drives. And 37 percent of women think men who buy expensive cars are compensating for a lack of “something.”
