Imagine you’re standing at the side of a busy road. Do you have any idea what color you’ll see the most as the cars fly past you? It might be easy to guess, but first you’ll need to know the top 7 popular car colors of all time. We’ll even talk about the reasons you would choose these colors in the first place.
White comes in at number one. It’s perfect for those in hotter climates because it doesn’t absorb lots of heat, whereas a black car would do the exact opposite. Drivers who want to appear modern will opt for white, even if it’s going to be a lot harder to keep their car clean. We have companies like Apple to thank for its top position.
Classic comes to mind when you think of black, but it’s also the most popular color when you want to convey a sense of power. You could argue it’s the exact opposite to white when you’re driving in certain conditions too. White will keep the heat out in warm climates, but black will be easier to see in the snow and other harsh weather.
Even though Silver might not be close to first place, it’s still number one for people buying luxury vehicles. It makes sense when you consider how flashy it looks. There are still some who argue silver and gray should come under the same color, but when you see them sitting next to each other they’re obviously a lot different.
You would never jump into a gray car if you wanted to stand out, but I guess there are more drivers on the road who just want to blend in with the rest of the pack. Gray usually tends to look good on any car no matter its shape or size, which is another big reason why we see so many of them on the road as more cars are sold.
It’s surprising to see the first official bright color so far down the list, especially when you see red cars on the road all the time. A lot of extroverts choose the warmest color because of how much it stands out, and it’s always a lot more popular among males looking to show off their masculinity.
Blue is officially the most popular color in the world, but it falls into sixth place when it comes to cars. It always resonates well with families looking for a reliable car to drive around. Blue did used to be a little more popular and it will apparently soon rise again, with females choosing them more than males.
This might be the most surprising one on the list, especially when you’ve probably seen more yellow and green cars on the road. Still, the figures don’t lie. It could be so high up on the overall list because they can be picked up for a good price. You’ll find the majority of them being sold on the secondhand market.
