Over the years, the top five car colors have changed little by little almost every year. Back in 1994, Axalta says that the most popular car color was green, followed by red, white, blue, and black. In 2013, the most popular car color was white followed by black, silver, gray, and red. As you can see, things have shifted over the years from bright and colorful to less-flashier neutral tones.
Edmunds.com says that Apple has had a huge impact on the way people choose their car colors. If you think about it, the iPhone’s most popular colors include white, black, and silver. If you think back to the 90’s iMac computers were popular in teal, green, and purple just to name a few. Now that the colored versions of the iPhone are available, we’ll have to see if the top five car colors change as well.
According to Yahoo Autos, driving a white car may be safer than driving a black one. The Monash University Accident Research Centre in Victoria, Australia claims that black cars have a 12% higher crash risk than white cars in the daylight and a 47% higher crash risk when it is dark. Of course white cars also have a few advantages such as reflecting sunlight, easier to clean, and the color is neutral.
