According to the poll conducted by the German TNS Emnid institute for the women's magazine Lisa, only five per cent of the women interviewed left the decision to buy the car entirely to their husbands. Two-thirds said they made the decision together with the man in their life.

For every third woman, the most important criterion was the safety aspect. Reliability was voted as a decisive factor in choosing a car by every fourth woman.

Some 18 per cent of the 264 women interviewed said they would choose a car with low fuel consumption.
