Just wondering what cars are popular where you live?


My road has a mix of all the usual stuff you get in any Western European country.

However, there are some streets near me that have nothing but Discoveries, Range Rovers, Q7s and Volvo XC90s - just one long train of luxo SUVs.

Nice! Cars there are a few main popular ones here. BMW's, Infinity's, and Porsches. Oh and Acura's and Hondas too. Those are just a few.

People around here really seem to like their Camaros and Mustangs. Also, being in the south, there's Chevy and Ford pickups everywhere.

Meh, not very special cars. Peugeot 107, VW Up! and cars in that direction. Sometimes a Citroën DS20 but for my good car spotting action you'll need to outrun my city, but it's the biggest city in northern Holland...

The Dutch call these cars "P.C. Hooft-Tractors" :P (The richest street of Amsterdam, P.C. Hooftstraat, where you can find these cars and various other expensive cars)

I would love to have all those tiny cars in America! :) but they don't send them over. :( Maybe soon with rising gas prices! :) just out side of my town there is a town called Doylestown, and it houses the court house for all of bucks county (the county which chalfont and Doylestown is located) (Chalfont is my home town) so you see lots of S-classes and Porsches and all kinds of luxury cars there because there are all these rich lawyers running about. :) I once spotted a Ferrari 458 Italia at the Starbucks there!

Lol, they were called 'Chelsea Tractors' here for the same reason, but the phrase has pretty much died out as they're everywhere now

Ummm where I live the most common cars are hatchbacks like the Golf, Focus, Astra, etc. There are also lots of Audi's, BMW's, and Mercs, and more recently lots of Kia's! On the more interesting side, I quite often see classic sports cars such as Triumphs, old MG's, and Lotuses.

There is not really any one sort of car that's overly popular in my area. I live in Australia so our most common cars are Holden Commodores, Ford Falcons and possibly Madza 3 and 6s. I also see alot of smaller cars like Toyota Corollas and Mitsubishi Lancers. Been seeing alot of the new 86s lately too

Too bad, it's a very nice car :

I've seen a few R8's in my time, one thing that helps this is that I live close to an audi dealer. We also have a Lamborghini dealer which is a little bit far away. :)

Near mine, there is a Mercedes dealer that usually stocks a few sls's, an Audi dealer that always has some r8's in, a Lamborghini Bentley dealer that always has different cars (they once ha a Bugatti for sale), a jaguar dealer, a Volkswagen dealer and a Toyota dealer! I guess I am quite lucky ;)

I saw a blue R8 yesterday (never ever seen a blue one before that!). My work is near a race track/drag strip/drift circuit so I see loads of interesting cars ranging from Lambos, Porsches, Ferraris etc, to hot rods and muscle cars as well Jap imports. I once saw someone driving a Cayenne, towing a trailer with what looked like a seriously worked 911 on it. So much money around!

Where I live seems to be infested with Bentleys and Rolls Royces, there used to be someone at my school who would turn up in a Rolls Royce Phantom each day! And my friend's dad used to have a TVR Cerbera! :)
