Which brands sell the most colorful vehicles?

Share this article:

It's easy to look around and see cars wearing black, grey and white paint. For years, these shades have been the volume sellers. Still, every brand offers a rainbow of color from which to choose. 

Vibrant hues can be attractive to buyers for a variety of reasons. Some colors on a particular body style can highlight the lines and curves in just the right places. A vivid color can also be a way to express oneself a bit more. Plus, with names like "Ooh La La Rouge," "Molten Lava" and "Orange Burst," you just have to take notice. 

This post examines which brands and colors Cartelligent clients tend to buy when they're looking to make a color splash. 

 


 

10. Honda (19% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey  
 11% 19% 51%  

 

By a wide margin, grey is the leading selection when Cartelligent clients buy or lease a Honda. But, when it comes to color, Molten Lava Red, Cosmic Blue, and Obsidian Blue are the preferred choices.


 

 

 9. BMW (21% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey
 25% 19% 35%

 

With BMW in living color, Cartelligent clients most often choose a Bavarian take on blue such as Long Beach Blue (shown).  


 

8. Volkswagen (21% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey
21% 20% 38%

 

Volkswagen buyers opting for color often choose blue but with a model like the Beetle, the palette widens with options like Habanero Orange and a stunning pink named Fresh Fuchsia (shown). 


 

7. Toyota (21% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey
14.5%  13%  51.5%

 

Bold reds are the color of choice for Toyota buyers, clearly hooked by names like the aforementioned Ooh La La Rouge (shown).


 

6. Audi (23% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey
 23% 14% 40%

 

Clients choosing Audis rarely select red. Instead, the prevailing choice is blue. Sepang Blue Pearl (shown) is quite popular.


 

5. Subaru (24% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey
 17% 18%  41%

 

Subarus tend to spend time off the beaten path, surrounded by nature. That may be why Subarus represent the highest percentage of cars purchased in green.  To better match their surroundings, Cartelligent clients most often select Jasmine Green or the very fitting Wilderness Green (shown).


 

4. Porsche (24% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey
25% 18% 33%

 

Similar to their German cousins at Audi, Porsches in blue are the most popular color among our clients. Night Blue and the brighter Sapphire Blue (shown) are the shades of choice. 


 

 

3. Chevrolet (26% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey
 16%  12% 46%

 

Chevrolet is the leading American brand from which clients make a colorful choice. The Bolt EV is one such model offering electrifying tints like Cajun Red and Orange Burst (shown).


 

2. Volvo (30% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey
 21%  17% 32%

 

One-third of Volvos purchased by Cartelligent clients are selected in a color. The striking Bursting Blue (shown) available on the XC90 is the top pick. 


 

 

1. Mazda (33% of cars selected in color)

Black White Grey
