It seems when people are buying a car, their decision is often influenced by a vehicle’s association to a specific gender. Some features are more desired in cars for women, and guys sometimes have other elements desired in their dream car.

Our responders reported that they thought the 2013 Ford Fusion was one of the more popular cars for women while the 2013 Buick Regal was more of a car for men. However, the testers in our consumer car review, which included unbiased participants, actually reported that the 2013 Ford Fusion was more appealing for men while the 2013 Hyundai Sonata was attractive for females.

As discussed in our blog about the top 5 cars for women, storage space, enjoyable driving experience and the safety features of a car tend to be among the most important for the female gender. These combined with the stylish exterior of the 2013 Hyundai Sonata, this car is at the top of the list for most popular cars for women.

Both genders in our consumer car review reported that good small item storage, top value for the money and attractive exterior styling were important features when buying a car; these two cars both include these important elements.

The 2013 Hyundai Sonata and 2013 Ford Fusion were both rated well by our consumer car review. Our testers reported the Fusion to be the best in class overall, and the 2013 Hyundai Sonata was rated above average.
