People who drive Audis are most likely to stray from their partners, according to a poll conducted by married dating site IllicitEncounters.
The premium manufacturer has beaten BMW to the top spot of philanderers’ favoured wheels, meaning either that BMW owners have switched brands, or have become more committed to their relationships in the last 12 months…
It seems German premium cars are popular with those who play away from home. After Audis, which are driven by 22 per cent of the website’s users, BMW and Mercedes were the next most popular, bring driven by 14 and 9 per cent of users respectively.
Completing the top five most popular adulterer’s cars were Volvo and Volkswagen.
French manufacturers made up the bottom end of the scale, with Peugeots and Renaults least likely to be driven by unfaithful partners. Also unpopular were Rovers – driven by less than a per cent of survey respondents – and Skodas.
Mike Taylor, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters, said: “Cars can reveal a lot about their owners, all the cars in the top five represent our members, they are typically successful, motivated, high-achievers who are less likely to settle for something they find unsatisfying, be it a car or a relationship.
“Car manufacturers know this and Mercedes even famously used infidelity to advertise their cars with the banned 'Not In This Weather' advert.”
