The Best Car To Have Sex In Is...
The safe and reliable Volvo Estate has finally got sexy - it has been voted the best car for getting steamy in the back seat with your lover. Until now it has had a boring image, but it turns out the car has actually seen more action than any other, according to a new survey. The secret, apparently, is the estate's spacious interior, The Sun says.
And there is another image make-over for the white van man, with the multi-purpose Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van in second place for racy road users.
survey of 4,000 put the VW Camper van in third place and the BMW 3 Series Saloon in fourth.
According the pollsters, some 68% of people have had sex in a car and one in 10 say they have even got fruity while driving.
In the throws of passion, a steamy six percent of respondents said they had damaged their vehicles while getting busy - but only one in 100 of these were bold enough to claim on their insurance.
A spokesman for yesinsurance.co.uk told the paper: "It would seem that space is the most important issue for couples who want to enjoy themselves."
He added: "Rear view mirrors are the most easily damaged objects, followed by ripped fabric seating."
