And to think, VW/Audi is at the forefront of marketing its vehicles to LGBT audiences...

In the latest round of assigning sexuality to vehicles, the Audi RS4 has emerged as the "straightest" car around in the "Alternative Car of the Year" poll, conducted by Wheels24, a South African online automotive publication. Funny, we know quite a few gay guys who drive Audis.

Volkswagen made the cut as well, with its Jetta filling in the fourth spot in the poll. Toyota also racked up two placements in the "straight" column, with its Fortuner coming in second place and the Lexus IS250 rounding out the poll in fifth. Dodge's macho ads for the Caliber have also apparently paid off -- the "not cute" Neon replacement came in third.

To the likely disappointment of many Autoblog readers who have dubbed the MINI Cooper the gayest car in the comments section of our site, Wheels24 readers actually think the Peugeot 207 deserves the title instead, with the BMW 3-series coupe serving as the runner up. The Jaguar XK came in third, with the Honda Civic hatch and Alfa Romeo 159 coming in fourth and fifth, respectively.

Most individuals -- gay or straight -- can appreciate a nice rear end, so Wheels24 included that in its poll as well. Cars with the sexiest rear end include as follows:

1. Alfa Brera
2. BMW Z4 Coupe
3. Opel Astra GTC
4. Renault Clio
5. Nissan Tiida

      Basically drive any car that is either stylish, high performance or German and you'll be driving a 'gay' car.

      FYI, cars aren't gay or straight. They don't even procreate.

      I nominate the Mercedes AMG C43!!! My friend just got one, and he is the biggest fruitcake I've seen, since Grandma died and had to stop making them.

      Really, the S4 strikes me as a power-top: ready to nail anything, male or female... gay or straight... animal, vegetable, mineral...

      You see the title, think it's BS or "non-auto" news. Why bother reading, much less leaving a comment? Negativity is something we all have enough of - why try breeding more of it? Autoblog was clearly just trying to have some fun here.

      I guess South Africans have nothing better to do since Apartheid ended.

      BMW has always been almost the exclusive vehicle for the Gay population. We love them !

      "50,000 Toyota Camrys are sold to homosexuals every year--more homosexuals than any other car on sale.
      So, Camry buyers are more likely to be homosexual than any other car save the Accord."

      That's pretty much the faultiest logic ever. It may be true that more Camrys are sold to homosexuals than any other car - after all, in the US at least, more Camrys are sold than any other car, period. (That would, in fact, reaffirm that - shocker! - "them gays" buy the same cars as the rest of the population.) But that doesn't mean that Camry buyers are more likely to be homosexual than any other car - such "likelyhood" would be based on percentage sold to homosexuals, not merely the number sold to homosexuals. For example, that 50,000 might account for only 5% of Camry sales (I'm just picking numbers out of a hat). Then let's say that 40,000 Mini Coopers (my favorite car) are sold to homosexuals, and that accounts for 6% of Mini sales. In this purely theoretical scenario, more Camrys would be sold to homosexuals, but the likelyhood of a Mini owner selected at random being homosexual would be higher. Savvy?

      Of course, the entire thing is stupid. People drive what they like. I'm sure I like cars on both the gay and straight lists, even though I'm only on one list myself. ;)

      I drive a BMW 330xi, if that means I'm gay, why are so many girls on my d*ck.

      for the record. Having HIV does not mean you're gay. Even if it is true that 50% of south africans are hiv+, it certainly doesn't have anything to do with homosexuality.

      also, couldn't we compare who buys what cars based on, age, race, region, gender... or anything.

      This article is only interesting because everybody is so obsessed about labeling, or being labeled gay.

      buy the car you want... this is as lame as a survey from teen magazine.

      If BMW's are for gays, then mercedes are for retards, and audi's for hermafrodites, what a load of bull!
      You just buy the car you like, period.

      I have never understood the benefit of taking the time to make this list then publish it. Silly.
