seem once again to be aimed at men who like muscle cars and dark colors with abundant horsepower. the colorful compact seem to be intended for women. but is this really what they want in cars. can i like big cars with lots of room i've got two kids and a dog so i need a lot of space for me it's important that when i close my car door i feel at all if the whole package if it's in a design the system is there everything to get it is one. contrary to the cliches women tend to prefer as uvas. although they are generally regarded as men's cars seventy percent of those driving them are women. italian polo to me nelly has been researching consumer behavior in the automotive industry since two thousand and two. this should be just as he views are tall which gives
