How to Decide on a Color for a Car

When it comes to choosing the color of your new car, it can sometimes feel like you are making a random decision, rather than one which will make any difference to your life or driving experience. There are so many different colors of cars out there and yet so many of us choose silver, red or black. The more adventurous colors like bright yellow and fuscia pink are seen far less often but certainly stand out.

Everybody’s taste is different, so there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing a car color, but how do you know which one is right for you? Should you just pick your favorite color? Most people spend a lot of time in their car, so it figures that choosing the right color can seem like a big decision to make. But, when you are working out which car to buy, there are often other priorities about what the features of the car are which will determine which car you choose to buy. But the color is important, it reflects a part of your personality and will show the world what kind of person you are. It is often far from a question of making a random decision.

The best starting point, having chosen the make and model, is to look for cars of this type in your local area. It is always the case that you will notice a particular car more when you have chosen to buy it. Note which ones catch your eye more, which ones look more dirty or dusty than others, which ones you can notice the scratches on, and which you think to suit the shape and size of the car.

If image is important to you then you need to decide whether you want to make a bold statement with a more unusual, striking color, or whether you want to seem more sophisticated, with a smart black or silver car. If you change your car quite often then you will need to bear in mind the fact that some colors do have a higher resale value than others. Bright colors, like purple and green, are not to everyone’s taste and second hand cars in these colors will be worthless when you come to sell your car.

At the end of the day, making a random decision probably won’t make much of a difference to your life, but this will be your car, and you will be the one who has to live with whichever color you choose. You can ask family and friends for their opinions, but at the end of the day, you are the one who will be seen in the car on a regular basis, so you are the one who needs to be happy with the decision.

There is no reason to slow down the purchase of the car by agonizing over this decision. The color of the car is not its most important feature, so if making a random decision is the way you decide to tackle the problem, then it is likely to affect little else other than the resale value of the car in the future.
