My beloved 1993 Saturn, my car for more than 15 years, broke down for the last time this week. It had 182,000 miles on it. I loved this car - it got more than 35 mpg on the highway and took me from the woods to New York City many times.
So now I have to buy a new (or used) car, something I haven't done in more than 15 years. It got me thinking. If you are a Saudi woman reading this, what kind of car will you drive when it's legal? What would be your ideal car? Certainly car dealers in the Kingdom must be really hopeful that women will be driving soon, it opens up a massive new market for them.
If I were a woman about to drive in Saudi Arabia....hmmm....yes I guess I'd go for something like a Range Rover. High off the ground for visibility, lots of extras for comfort, and the ability to deal with unusual road conditions. Color-wise, I'd go with white and a tan fabric interior, to minimize the effect of the summer.
