Capricorns favour the sporty Audi TT and Porsche Boxster while Geminis opt for the sleek elegance of the Mercedes C, E and S Classes

According to research by Europcar there may be a connection between star sign and car choice! When they analysed nearly 8,000 Prestige rentals, they made some interesting discoveries. The normally cautious, conventional and serious Capricorn was the biggest renter of Prestige models as a whole, accounting for 20% of all reservations.

Capricorns account for 82% of rentals of the Audi TT Coupe.  It’s a similar story for the Porsche Boxster with Capricorns making 30% of bookings; the next closest renter of the performance coupe is Cancer at just 9% of all rentals of this model.

Gemini, the curious, changeable and expressive star sign, also dominates the Europcar Prestige rental chart, scoring 12% of all rentals.  Whilst Capricorn favours the sporty models, restless Gemini prefers the sleek and elegant Mercedes C Class which represented 26% of all models hired by this star sign.


The Mercedes E Class and S Class also scored highly with customers born under the Gemini star sign.

The fun and quirky BMW MINI Cooper S is the favourite with artistic Librans and passionate Scorpios, whilst daring Sagittarians favour the space and practicality of the Mercedes M Class.

It seems that no star sign can resist the pure decadence and performance of the Mercedes S Class, with drivers born under the Virgo, Taurus, Aries, Aquarius, Cancer and Leo star signs all making it their top rental choice.
