Cars sold in India are available in a variety of colours. Some cars are launched with an exclusive paint finish too, just for the sake of attention. Not all cars go well with a specific colour. Usually, a new car launched in India will be available with nine to twelve colour options to choose from. But still, most Indians prefer a definite set of car colours.
Indian car buyers can also be a bit superstitious in opting colours. Some do not use black cars on happy occasions such as marriages. Some see cars in colours other than white or silver as too flaunting. Here are some of the most-liked and hated car colours in India!
Most-Liked Car Colours In India
The most popular car colours in India are white, silver and black. This is the case for global markets also. The reason for this is that white, silver and black stays fresh for long. While some manufacturers sell their cars in flashy metallic paint finishes, most of these colours will look bland years later. Doing detailing works such as ceramic coating or Paint Protection Film (PPF) will prevent this to a good extent.
Such colours also have a low resale value for the same reason. Meanwhile, white, silver and black will offer better resale value as long as there are no scratches or dents. Out of the three, white is the most-preferred colour choice. 46% of all Indian cars are white.
White colour stays new for long and requires the least maintenance. If you think black colour hides all the dust and mud, you are wrong. Cars in black highlight dust and mud, the most.
Most-Hated Car Colour In India
The line ‘most-hated car colour in India' is perhaps inappropriate. A good majority of Indian car buyers do not prefer colours such as blue, red, green, yellow or orange. But that doesn't mean they are bad. The actual fact is that, car colours are design-dependent. While most Lamborghinis look best in Yellow, can you imagine a Honda City in the same bright yellow?
Some of the ‘least-preferred' car colours in India are beige, gold, brown, pink and some light shades of blue or green. The preference also depends on the finish. Usually, cars come with solid, metallic or matte paint finish.
Around 20% cars in India are silver in colour. Grey colours are a good 11% while colours such as black and red follow behind at 5%. Though blue is the favourite colour of many, the percentage of cars in blue is very less than red or black.
Thoughts On The Most-Liked And Hated Car Colours In India
Car colours are a personal preference. Just because the majority picks one colour over another, the latter won'tbe bad. However, some cars look really good in a specific colour while some other cars look bad in the exact same paint. But in short, all cars look decent in either white, silver or black. Which is your favourite car colour?
