Summer is here, and nothing quite beats the heat than a scoop of ice cream. Did you know that your favorite ice cream flavor can be a reflection of you? According to Baskin-Robbins, who studied this phenomenon, your ice cream preferences can reveal something about your personality!
To join in on the summer fun, we matched personality traits associated with traditional ice cream flavors with vehicles here at Car City. So, here’s what vehicle you should drive, based on your favorite ice cream flavor.
Those who gravitate towards classic chocolate ice cream tend to be dramatic or flirtatious. (Think: a box of chocolates, chocolate-covered strawberries.) For that reason, we paired this ice cream flavor with a flirtatious sports car. Specifically, we chose this red 2011 Chevy Camaro due to its athletic handling and powerful base engine.
Strawberry lovers tend to be introverted, tolerant, and devoted. Introverts tend to enjoy their surroundings in peace. The perfect vehicle for this crowd is a Toyota Corolla due to its tech and safety features, great fuel economy, and excellent reliability rating. The Corolla provides a dependable, fuel-efficient ride.
Those who prefer a scoop of cookie dough ice cream are ambitious and competitive. For this reason, we paired cookie dough with the Jeep Renegade. This subcompact SUV ranks high, according to U.S. News, based on its roomy cabin, balanced ride, and superior handling. What makes this vehicle perfect for cookie dough lovers, however, is the best off-roading capabilities in its class. Ambitious types will love the Renegade.

Mint Chocolate Chip
Fans of mint chocolate chip tend to be reserved and cautious. It’s no wonder why this crowd would prefer top safety-rated vehicles. We have written previously about our picks for the best safety-rated vehicles in our inventory here, based on rankings from a Consumers Report survey of owners and IIHS data.
For mint chocolate chippers, we chose the Chevy Equinox (2016 or newer) based on its stellar safety ratings, room, and reliability. The 2018 Equinox (pictured below) gets 22-28 mpg in the city and 28-39 on the highway, making this a fuel-efficient SUV.
We couldn’t make a list of ice cream flavors and exclude vanilla. People often stereotype this classic flavor as boring or lackluster, but vanilla lovers are anything but! Those who like vanilla are idealists; people guided by visions rather than practical considerations.
Surprisingly, there is research showing people who consider themselves idealists like the Honda Accord. According to USAToday, “Honda Accord drivers mostly bought the car for comfort, see themselves as idealists, and consider themselves modern.”
