The color of your car is probably the last thing you are worrying about when you are looking to purchase a new vehicle. You will be busy making sure that the car is big enough for the whole family, that it has enough power and speed to take you where you want to go and working out how much it will cost you to pay for the fuel to keep it going. After all of this, it may be that you just need to make a random decision about what color to have once you have settled on the make and model of car for you. You will of course be limited by the number of color options available for that particular car.
If you are buying it new then you will be able to choose between all of the colors that the factory provides. If you are buying your car second-hand then it will be a different story. You may not get as much of a choice when buying a second-hand car as different colors might be older or have done more miles. This means that the color won’t necessarily be the only factor that you have to consider when choosing between two versions of the same make and model.
There is no real evidence that one car color is safer than another. In the past, insurers have offered lower premiums and better rates for drivers of cars that are brightly colored. The argument was that the brighter the color of the car, the more easily visible it is, so it is therefore less likely to be involved in a crash than a darker car. Since there are so many different elements involved in causing road traffic incidents, the color of the car cannot really have much of an impact. If you are worried that the color you choose for your car will make a difference to the amount of money that you have to pay to have it insured, then you should speak to your insurance provider before you make a random decision about which color to choose.
The only real financial impact that you will need to consider before you make a random decision about which color car to get will be its resale value. The most popular colors for cars are blue, red, silver and black. These colors will be the easiest to sell on to another buyer if you think that you will be changing your vehicle again in a few years’ time. If you choose a brighter or more unusual color, then you might find that you can’t sell it for as much when you have finished with it. If you think that this might be a problem then it might be a better idea to go for a more popular color in the first place. If you are buying a second-hand car then you might get a better deal if you buy a car in a less popular color. You could use this as a bargaining chip to try and knock the price down a bit as well.
