Which article is correct in this sentence?

The most popular means of transport is the car/a car

As far as I understand, when we mean the invention itself in general, we use 'the', but 'a' implies each individual car. Considering that, I'd use 'the', but my Google search showed that 'a' is actually more frequently used.

I'll appreciate any help.
