White has replaced silver on the list of favorite car colors. The Dallas Morning News reports on Oct. 22 that white has become the most popular with 25 percent of all cars being painted this color. Silver has moved to second place on the popularity list.
PPG Industries shares that white has grown in popularity compared to last year. Although silver used to dominate car colors, it has fallen to second place with 18 percent while white is at 25 percent. The company blames Apple and its white tech gadgets for helping to boost the popularity of the color.
In South America, silver is still the most popular car color, but it has been replaced by white in other parts of the world. Consumers place a great emphasis on vehicle color while shopping. It is considered to be one of the top three items that influence a purchase.
Consumers tend to stick to safe color choices for their cars. Silver, white, black and gray are usually at the top of the list for the most popular colors, and they tend to simply replace each other in the number one spot. However, blue is slowly making progress and may join the top soon. Manufacturers are also trying to introduce new shades, and they hope a pink-tinged bright red gets attention.
