What Cars Would The Disney Princesses Drive?
Disney princesses have been around since the 30’s and have been inspiring girls around the world ever since.
And although they have been in numerous films, spin-offs, plays, video games, books (you name it), there is one question that is still unanswered.
What cars would they drive if they were real?
Vehicle leasing company OSV have analysed the character traits and lifestyle of each Princess and matched them with their perfect vehicle.
Snow White (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) – Mercedes Vito Tourer
The Mercedes Vito Tourer has flexible seating for between 2 and 9 people and is great for carrying heavy materials.
So what better car for Snow White, her seven dwarfs and all of their work tools.Snow White will also be well prepared for the evil Queen in this mighty people carrier. With the excellent suspension and rear wheel drive, Snow White could cruise quickly and comfortably (so Grumpy has nothing to complain about) to escape the Queen’s evil grasp.
Cinderella – Fiat 500 Gucci
The lovechild of Gucci and Fiat is perfect for the beautiful and elegant Cinderella.
Owning the keys to one in 2012 was as stylish as carrying a Hermes Birkin or wearing a pair of Louboutin shoes.
So we think the fashion icon Cinderella would join the likes of Elle McPherson and take ownership.
As the car model was a limited edition, Cinderella could pick up a second-hand version for around £7,000.00. Perfect for her modest and humble personality.
Aroura (Sleeping Beauty) -Tesla Model X
The Tesla Model X is possibly the most interesting SUV on sale right now and gentle and loving Aurora would fall in love with this all electric, environmentally friendly car. Capable of hitting 60mph in 2.9 seconds, the Tesla Model X will allow Aurora to get away quickly from the evil Maleficent if she should appear. It also has the added benefit of autopilot. If the sleeping spell should return, the autopilot mode will steer, change lanes, manage speed and park, keeping the princess safe until she wakes up. The environmentally friendly aspect will also help protect all of the woodland creatures and the spacious interior will allow Aurora to transport all of her fairy godmothers, the prince and even some of her woodland creatures at one time.
Ariel (The Little Mermaid) – Nissan Leaf
Like Aurora, Ariel would only be seen driving an environmentally friendly car. With Flounders, Sebastian and her family still in the Ocean, it’s important that she helps protect the waters. Not only is the Leaf electric which helps protect the planet, but the Leaf has also been manufactured using a number of recycled materials and can be 99% recycled at the end of its lifespan. Further protecting the oceans. Reliable and covering 107 miles in a single charge, the Nissan leaf will also help Ariel escape if Ursula should make an unwelcome appearance.
Belle (Beauty and the Beast) – Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman
The second Mercedes on our list goes to Belle. This princess is not overly concerned about outer appearances but is concerned about what lies inside. Even though the Maybach Pullman’s outer appearance is very grand, the inside is where this vehicle shines. The Pullman interior is the definition of opulence with only the highest quality leather chosen and the seats are more like thrones than car seats. Commonly used for heads of state and royalty, it’s well suited to the new Princess and with tonnes of space too, the Beast (before he turned back to his human form) would fit comfortably inside with all of her books.
Jasmine (Aladdin) – Lamborghini Aventador
The first supercar on our list goes to sassy Princess Jasmine. Fearless and bold (after all she does have a pet tiger), she would pick a striking car that packs power. The Aventador can hit speeds of 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and with a top speed of 220 mph, Jasmine can help the roguish Aladdin escape if he found himself in trouble once again. It’s also a great car to let off some steam when she finds her regal life too stressful. Jafar would also be no match for the Aventador so would no longer pose a threat. With a magic carpet and this supercar, you could say that Princess Jasmine, Aladdin, Abu and the Sultan are unreachable and will be safe from Jafar’s schemes.
Pocahontas – VW Type 2
Open minded and free spirited Pocahontas would pick a car that allows her to follow her heart and search for purpose. She has everything she needs to survive in the VW camper and can continually move forward in order to find what she is looking for. Obviously, she would also try to paint the exterior with all the colours of the wind. If Volkswagen decides to manufacture the I.D. Buzz concept, Pocahontas would be first in line. A fully electric version will allow her to continue her mission, but will also allow her to live in harmony with all earthly creatures.
Mulan – BMW X5
Now a prominent public figure, Mulan needs protection at all times. After defeating the Huns, Mulan will feel safe and at ease in the armoured BMW X5. With the ability to withstand attacks from blunt objects or guns, and fitted with an eight cylinder, turbocharged engine generating 450 hp, Mulan could make a quick getaway if she should find herself in another violent situation. It also features run flat tyres, a self-sealing fuel tank, an attack alarm and intercom system, so she is fully prepared.
Tiana (Princess and the Frog) – Honda Jazz
It’s well known that when cars break down the repair costs can be a bit of a blow. As Tiana is desperately trying to save for her restaurant, the last thing she would want to see is an unexpected repair bill. So she would pick a car that is known for its reliability. A recent study showed that only one percent of Honda Jazz models registered with Warranty Direct break down in a typical year, making it the top choice for Tiana. She also likes the fact that this car reminds her of her hometown, the birthplace of Jazz, New Orleans.
Rapunzel (Tangled) – Toyota Land Cruiser
Unstoppable Rapunzel needs a car that matches her adventurous personality. After spending her life dreaming of seeing the lanterns, Rapunzel is no match for anyone that gets in her way. So with that in mind, she would choose a car that had go anywhere capabilities. The Toyota Land Cruiser is sleek, agile and robust (more similarities it shares with Rapunzel) and thanks to its 4WD and multi-terrain management system it can handle any landscape so there will be no holding Rapunzel back. With oceans of space, it also has room for all of her hair, before it was cut off of course.
Merida (Brave) – Mercedes Benz G-Class
Merida is without a doubt the toughest Princess and would pick a car that is as tough as her. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a true off-road legend so will be perfect for when she wants to nip into the woods to get some target practice in. This monstrous car would also have more than enough room for her bow and arrow and even a couple of bears too if they want to come along for the ride.
So what do you think of our selections? Are the vehicles suitable?
