It’s all too easy to be cynical about the sings of the Zodiac and argue that your daily horoscope could apply to you regardless of what’s written in the sky.
But to dismiss it disregards the uncanny character traits that are typical of those born within a certain time period, plus the choices they make in life, including what they drive.
Here, then, are the definitive stars and their cars…
Capricorn – Land Rover Defender
The key traits for most Capricorns are a sense of independence, adventure and plain-speaking honesty, even if it is considered a little unsympathetic by some. The perfect vehicle for the most stubborn of Earth signs, then, is the stalwart Land Rover Defender – a natural born leader with a responsible but unforgiving nature.
Aquarius – Ferrari 488 Spider
Temperamental, uncompromising and with one eye on the future, what better car for an Aquarius than the Ferrari 488 Spider. The 488 has style, power and the ability to stimulate the senses, all very much Aquarius characteristics.
Pisces – Kia Ceed
A typical Pisces is generous, dependable and deserving of trust, but also reserved and mild-mannered. In automotive terms, that sounds to us very much like the Kia Cee’d, which offers a lot for the money, yet comes with the reassurance of a seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty. Perfect if you need a car to trust.
Aries – Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen
Courageous, aggressive, spontaneous… what better vehicle to represent Aries than the go-anywhere G-Wagen. Fitted with the best tech that Mercedes has to offer alongside being dependable and brutish in almost all conditions, the G-Class has everything an Aires would need. The 4.0-litre V8 has plenty of power to go alongside the stand-out body that - apart from minor changes at the start of 2018 - has stayed the same since the 1970s. A proper Aires.
Taurus – Lamborghini Urus
Hedonistic, fashionable, keen to look their best, romantic and materialistic – yes, Taurus, that’s you. So what better car for you than the new Lamborghini Urus, a car that, like Taurus, proudly wears a bull as its mascot. It’s as extrovert as SUVs come, yet at the same time has a sensible, passionate and emotional side to it that’s entirely aligned with your sign of the Zodiac.
Gemini – Fiat 500 Twin Air
Cheerful, approachable and full of fun, the average Gemini is instantly likeable and likes to be loved. It’s no surprise, then, that the Fiat 500 Twin Air is the perfect match for the sign of the twins. Geminis have a natural desire to travel, explore and enjoy the world, and the 500 Twin Air is a vibrant and lively companion with which to do just that.
Cancer – Suzuki Jimny
Tenacious and enthusiastic, with a strong focus on family values, those born under the sign of Cancer are also like to punch above their weight. In car terms, then, the Suzuki Jimny is the perfect comparison – tougher and stronger than it looks, the little Jimny is never happier than when taking on the rough and tumble with the big boys.
Leo – Range Rover
Leo is the King of the Jungle – bold, brash and with the heart of a Lion, yet at the same time ambitious and striving to improve, while remaining proud of his or her roots. Leos are rarely shy or retiring and are known for appreciating the finer things in life, albeit with a spontaneous desire to constantly go beyond. Sound familiar? Yes, the Range Rover is a perfect match.
Virgo – Volvo V90
Not only do Virgo and Volvo both have five letters and begin and end with the same letter, but they also have many more synergies. Virgos are practical people, obsessed with detail and neatness. Volvos are much the same. The V90 is a complete no-nonsense car – it excels at the job it is designed to do and is beautifully executed. A Virgo will like that, for certain. Especially if it’s kept nice and clean.
Libra – Subaru WRX
Balance and security are everything to Libras, who are also known for their appreciation of thoroughness and fine engineering. A Subaru, then, is the perfect companion for your average Libra. The WRX even more so, as when Libras have power, they like to hold on to it and use it as wisely and effectively as possible, something the WRX’s permanent all-wheel-drive ensures.
Scorpio – Porsche 911
Capable, controlled and confident, but with a vicious streak that can occasionally turn them unruly, Scorpios are very much aligned with the most iconic supercar of all time. The 911 is refined, sophisticated and handsome, but provoke it and it emits a powerful sting from its back end, which can be enough to make it lose control. Does that sound familiar, Scorpio?
Sagittarius – MINI Cooper S
Most Sagittarians are generous, witty and great fun to be around, with an extremely cheeky personality and a huge sense of fun. They often hide their skills behind their open charm and gregarious nature. A MINI Cooper S is the perfect sidekick for one of the most loveable and entertaining people you could wish to know.
