A new study by Scrap Car Comparison has revealed that Suzuki, Peugeot, and MINI drivers are most likely to have the highest levels of intelligence in the world. On the other hand, the reverse is true for Land Rover, BMW, and Fiat.
The firm then formed a sample size of over 2,000 British drivers to take a standardized IQ test and rank them by car brand, recording results for 22 car companies. The study also defined powertrain, vehicle color, and personalization subsets that played a factor in the test.
The results showed that Skoda drivers had an average IQ of 99, making them the smartest. Suzuki owners came in second with an average IQ of 98.08. Following them, with IQ scores of 97.79, 97.41, and 95.91, respectively, were Peugeot, Mini, and Mazda.
Fiat owners came in second with an IQ average of 90.14. The BMW owners had the third-lowest IQ average at 91.68. With an average IQ of 88.58, Land Rover owners were at the very bottom of the list.
The experts at Scrap Car Compare looked at automobile brands as well as whether a driver’s choice of car colour or even the design of their licence plate could be a sign of their intellect.
The findings were as definite as those for the automobile companies, demonstrating unequivocally that persons who drive white or grey cars—with an average IQ of 95.71 or 94.97, respectively—are more likely to be intelligent than those who opt for less monochromatic options.
