The favoured style of car for Britain’s lovers is in decline, according to a Valentines’ survey carried out by the nation’s most exciting automotive expo.
The Leasing.com London Motor and Tech Show, in association with Drivetribe, surveyed a cross-section of the UK’s drivers to reveal that the traditional saloon was the most amorous automobile, with over 35 per cent of drivers admitting that they had their first in-car kiss inside a seductive sedan.
But with the market for saloon cars on the wane, could the art of car-based canoodling be on the way out?
According to the survey, just under a quarter of motorists hooked-up in a hatchback, while only 17.9 per cent enjoyed a passionate performance in a sports car, suggesting that the traditional two-seater isn’t as much of a magnet to potential partners as legend dictates. And as for convertibles? Less than one-in-20 layby lovers went topless.
For those looking for love in the fast lane, the British Motor and Tech Show is the perfect place to go to check out potential new partners, as the traditional saloon segment slows down.
Andy Entwistle, London Motor and Tech Show CEO, said: “It seems that most lovers had their first car kiss in a saloon, but today’s car market is so very different, with crossovers, SUVs and multi-purpose vehicles all offering an alternative – or what about a hook-up in a pick-up? And could it be that electric cars are the ones to really make sparks fly? The good thing about the London Motor and Tech Show is that it features all of these and more.”
To mark Valentines’ Day, the show’s organisers have put together a special offer in the run-up to the most romantic day in the calendar.
The show is offering pairs of tickets for just £14 each, limited to two per person, if purchased between February 1 and Valentines’ Day itself, February 14.
Anyone who treats the car lover in their life to a special treat by buying tickets with the special code “CARLOVER” will also go into a draw to win a romantic dinner for two in London on the night of their visit to the show.
The show, takes place from 16-19 May at London’s ExCel Arena, with tickets on sale now. Adult entry outside of the offer costs just £20, with free entry for children Under 16. You can buy tickets here: https://thelondonmotorshow.seetickets.com/tour/the-london-motor-tech-show/
