    Leave the child's physiology to sort out the potassium levels.

    Obviously.

    They clearly wanted to appear different aesthetically to other car manufacturers who show the families that they are targeting... it is certainly different.

    They could have collaborated with that well known tech firm and had her eating an apple.

    Why not a wholesome family woman? Indeed why not show parents have I missed them?

    This is untrue and is the sort of naive and ridiculously simplistic comment one would expect from someone who has difficulty assessing reality and understanding anything about economics.

    There are many millions of advertisements offering all kinds of goods and services at reasonable prices, from companies and businesses both large and small, many of whose services and products we are all likely at some point to be grateful for .

    This looks like a job for Super @Burndenpark to reply to.

    Before children appear a couple might still enjoy small, fast, two-seat cars. It is the child that changes the style of car to be considered.

    I concede that the image in the link in the OP is without the wider context, when I clicked on the RS link in the article the last picture shows the family, so perhaps this illustration highlights that when anything is taken out of context it becomes a problem.

    Shh. We seem to have had a break from several sources of irrelevant, half-baked drivel recently. Don't tempt providence.

    Just because their historical customers are male this doesn't mean it cannot change in fact advertising is the very thing that can change and influence purchasing habits, while sporty cars are not the exclusive preserve of men in the way sanitary towels/tampons are for women in the way you suggested, several of my women friends and indeed my good self all drive sporty German cars. Age, income and even location are additional factors to purchasing as you no doubt know.
