BMWs are popular cars for those having an affair.

Volkswagen wins the crown with 22%, as the top cheating car driven by men in the UK.

Mercedes is the number one car driven by affair seeking women (20%).

BMW comes in second for both men and women, with 18% and 17% respectively.

But while German cars might top the list, its not quite so good for Italian car manufacturer Fiat.

The car least driven by cheating men and women is the Fiat, with only 0.2% combined.

Flashy cars and sex appeal have always gone well together, with research even indicating having a nice car can change you from a 4/10 to an 8/10, with 58% of women claiming a man’s car affects his dateability.

Car manufacturers are aware of this and will often sexualise their adverts, with Mercedes previously advertising their fleet of cars, in a now banned, infidelity advert.

Spokesman for IllicitEncounters.com Jessica Leoni said “The car you drive speaks volumes about your personality. The results indicate that adulterers tend to be affluent and successful, willing to invest in good quality. This attitude extends to our drivers marital lives, where having an affair is a luxury for men and women who are unwilling to settle for mediocrity.

The top three automobiles for both men and women are from German manufacturers, designed for their comfort, style and practicality.
