BMW teams up with Italian styling gurus at Pininfarina for slick new coupe
To find out which cars are most popular with Britain's female drivers, we scoured the Gocompare.com database for the models, new and old, that received the greatest number of quotation hits from the ladies in 2011. Although some of the models on the list are a touch obvious, more than a few of them rather took us by surprise.
Although Chevrolet replaced the Matiz with the Spark in 2009, there are still plenty to pick from in the used market. This model's biggest attraction has always been its cute looks and low price, and with used models starting at under £1,000 that hasn't changed. The payoff for that, however, is refinement and a sophisticated ride.

Doe's anyone remember the old Austin Metropolitan?
Well, it looks very similar, but with Leather, A/C, Cruise etc.
It looks like krap, drives and handles like krap with the worst engine and transmission you can imagine.
Although they are no longer made (Understandably) and you can only buy an old import!
THEY ARE INCREDIBLY POPULAR!!!!!!!!!!!
yes the article is patronising but have got to use this to write my review on the Beetle> Lovely to look at but a nightmare to own! Have a Beetle convertible same colour as picture and have had two major roof repairs on my 3 year old car as it just wouldn't work when it was half way up!, The boot electrics have gone twice, along with the whole wiper unit., the windows have taken on a life of their own sometimes going up and down at will.... unless you like driving a lot of courtesy cars and spending your spare time in garages waiting for repairs, steer well clear!!
Will cost you a fortune....
What a coincidence.
On a visit to Oban,Argyll today I came across one of these cars in the retail park and like all unusual vehicles I see took a snap of it on my mobile.I now wonder whom the owner might have been!!
"Research shows" you say and then put a small volume special import as number one. I am confident soundly based research would show that your writer just made it all up, because he had a space to fill and nothing worth reporting..
Most of us have been on the Quotation websites for a laugh and to check out what they quote for the Bugatti Veyron convertible that costs more than the whole street I live in.
But quotes do not equal cars bought and driven by women or by men.
I have a lot of respect for the ladies in general, and do not believe for one second that many would think this was a realistic review of their motoring preferences.
They know good value, and are often better at shopping for quality and value than we men.
Please don't try to perpetuate the "little woman" image a second longer.
Oh yes my wife chose for herself and by herself a bright red MINI Countryman Cooper S, I love the car and sometimes she even lets me drive it.
