Years ago, when the only available car colours were white, black and silver, the choice was relatively easy. Now, however, there are just as many car colours to pick from as there are shades of paint for your living room wall. Red, maroon, green, blue, grey, yellow… the list is pretty much endless!
Experts believe that ‘Colour Psychology’ plays a big role in a car buyer’s choice of colour, with some car buyers taking days (sometimes even weeks) to make a decision. According to experts, this is because your choice of car colour has strong links to your personality and can send subliminal messages to people around you.
