Today, as the sun moves into Cancer, we, in the Northern Hemisphere, are graced not only with the summer solstice — and longest day of the year — but the entry into the summer season! So it’s just the right time to consider these next three months, the journeys we all have ahead of us, and to help you gravitate toward a car well-suited to the obviously inherent and unshakable traits associated with your zodiac sign. We at Turo admit to limited psychic and visionary powers, but we would be remiss if we didn’t at least attempt to send you off on your summer travels with some nurturing Cancer vibes via car recommendations.


Aries, you’ll drive whatever car you want, regardless, but as far as we’re concerned, you should be driving a car with your boldness, your strength, your charisma, and your impressive ability to inspire confidence in others. You may be blunt and perhaps even arrogant, but it’s only because you’re eager to take action and define the journey, whatever it may be. So for you, dear, fiery leader, it’s the Maserati GranTurismo. It’s undeniably sleek and aggressive. It even has a menacing shark mouth.

Oh Taurus, we admire your ability to mix the pleasures of life with a solid sense of practicality. You’re always grounded — you are an earth sign, after all — and we think you should be driving a car that, like you, can handle any terrain, and still provide the tenderness and sensuality you so appreciate. Which is why, it’s most certainly a Subaru Outback for you. You’re not here for the glamour, you’re here for the all-wheel drive. And we know that you will love the hell out of those seat-warmers and roof rack. Most likely you’ll drive it until the wheels fall off.


You’re a restless, busy bee, Gemini. You love to buzz around town seeing what people are up to. We can count on you to always be up on the hottest new vacation spot or the latest new fad diets, and you’re excellent at digging up the answers to puzzles like, how does a person manage to book a campsite at Yosemite? Because you’re so quick and zippy, we think you should be driving a Mazda Miata. It’s a car full of pep and it’s ripe for modification, so the fickle part of you will never quite be done perfecting your ride.

We know you’re a nurturing, loving soul, Cancer. You create harmony everywhere you go, and since your carefully curated home is unequivocally the most comfortable place on earth, why should your car be any different? The Volvo XC90 has all of the luxury you’re looking for, but it can also give you that sense of security that you need too. It’s a sturdy vehicle, nobody can deny that, and also one with enough capacity to always carry the friends and the gear you travel with — because you reliably have the most fun.

Leo, we see your dignity and your strength, and it’s no wonder that you view yourself as the center of the universe. Not everyone can master that self-confident glow and that flair for the dramatic, from which we can’t unglue our eyes. What should you be driving then? Since you already possess that jungle feline swagger, it’s clearly the Jaguar F-Type. Even the growl of its engine seems appropriate. Certainly it’s a car that draws you in with its charm, but the F-Type does not skimp on performance either because you’d never want to disappoint your audience.

We know your active brain is constantly whirring, lovely Virgo, and while some might find it troublesome that you reliably find a nit to pick or a stray detail out of place, we know that these are markers of good taste. Because you’re modest and seek to challenge yourself, it’s the Toyota Prius that you should be driving. Not only because it’s full of extra energy and can go forever, just like you, but for those who appreciate balance, the hybrid engine is perfection, and for those who are naturally studious, you can teach yourself to drive the Prius with maximum efficiency.

Where would we be without you, Libra? You’re an expert at maintaining an even keel and ensuring that everyone has a good time. Nobody else can maintain the number of deep, meaningful relationships that you do, and because you so deftly maneuver around conflict, everyone wants to be your friend. Which is why you and the Volkswagen Vanagon are a great pair. Its funky style is as charming as yours, it can handle the loved ones you’re with at all times, and was there ever a car that more symbolized peace and togetherness?

Nobody SHOULD be messing with you, Scorpio, but not everyone is so wise. And you have to admit that your wits, passion, and mystery make you alluring. When you want to be, you come off as light and innocent. But let’s not forget that you’re here in the world with your own private agenda, and you don’t take well to other people getting in your way. So what car to drive, then? It has to be the Alfa Romeo 4C. It’s got all the right sleek moves, but only for those with the patience and understanding to make it tick. It’s equally fearsome and awesome, which is exactly the impression we know you’d like to make.

Sag, you’re a wanderlusty sort. There’s always a truth to be sought, and you’ll traverse the earth and back to get a handle on the big picture — because your optimism has you convinced there are answers. You’re the type who, after a few glasses of wine, can’t stop waxing poetic about whatever philosophical question has currently possessed you, and honestly, most people are inspired by your monologues. Though you’re quite the social butterfly, you do tend to need space to fly solo, which is why the 560SL suits you. This classic two-seater has a timeless elegance, and like you, has no plans to slow down anytime soon.

You’ve got plans to get ahead, Capricorn, and you’re willing to put in the work to get there. You’re the one your friends go to when they want to see if a business idea will fly, because you’ve got a risk-averse, logical head on your shoulders, and nobody better understands the winding path to the top like you do. We know that it’s not the fixation on status that drives you, it’s about appreciating the finest of the finer things in life. For that reason, you know you’d love driving the Porsche Panamera. It has all the refinement of a perfect gentlewoman, plus it’s built to fit the next generation of your tiny empire.

You’ve always been a weirdo, Aquarius, but it’s never bothered you. You’re well aware of your place in history and you’re always seeking to push the boundaries to make the world a better place. It’s getting old that everyone keeps asking if you’re on drugs — you’re just imaginative! And we believe in your visionary future. Given the chance, it’s clear that you would be driving a Tesla Model X. The inventiveness in the technology would excite you, sure, but it’s the idea that you’re involved in the next phase of 21st century transportation that would really fire you up.

You’re a sensitive soul, Pisces, and that’s precisely what makes you such a gem. You’re in touch with everyone: yourself, friends and family, strangers, people who haven’t been around for years, creatures who have never had physical bodies, and probably aliens as well. You’re incredibly gentle and compassionate, and you know how to care for yourself and other people. We’re lucky to have you, even if you’re only in this world part-time. For you, the Fisker Karma couldn’t be more appropriate. They were only produced for a year, so they’re rare, stunningly beautiful, and their hybrid engines give them the option to impress with playful performance and with sustainability.
