The Chinese zodiac is a big part of Chinese culture, and their signs have been used for over 2000 years as a way of dating years in a 12-year cycle of the Chinese calendar. The zodiac is calculated by a cycle of sixty years in which each animal signifies a different year. These animals play a huge role in Chinese stories and folklore, and have different personality traits. It’s such an important factor that many people dictate their choices and plans based on the predictions and superstitions described in the Chinese Zodiac.
With Chinese New Year around the corner, here at AutoDeal, we’ve decided to make predictions of our own. We’ve come up with a fun and interesting list for those interested in knowing what type of car would best fit your Chinese zodiac sign.
