Volkswagen made the top of the list for Gaywheels.com's most recent compilation of the top 10 most-researched vehicles. The list of autos represents the diversity of interests among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) automotive consumers.
Gaywheels.com encourages car shoppers to patronize gay-friendly companies during their vehicle purchase process -- users of the site are able to research which automakers and auto companies offer domestic partner benefits to their employees, and they can read general reviews about cars, trucks and SUVs from those manufacturers.
No. 1 of the top 10 most-researched vehicles from the last six months:
EPA fuel economy: 21-22 city / 29 highway
Available engines: 170-hp, 2.5-liter I-5
Available transmissions: five-speed manual w/OD, six-speed automatic w/OD and auto-manual
