Well, if I was a betting man I would say that most cars are painted one of three shades: White, Silver and Black.
Particularly with White coming back in a big way the past couple of years.
But according to data compiled by Hyundai and put into this easy to recognize, interactive format by The Wall Street Journal, we can see how colors are panning out across the world. At first glance it's easy to see that silver, black, white and gray still dominate most sales where other colors don't play much of a significant role.
WHY is that?
Are buyers just so focused on resale that they don't wish to take risks or do most cars just happen to look their best in subdued colors?
Even more interesting is when you look into the chart's figures and certain oddities come into play. Like, why does Europe love its blues and why does South Korea not even contemplate Beige?
