Compared with engine spec and extras, colour can be a crucial decision because if you choose the wrong colour, you might find it harder to sell at the best price when it is time to sell your car.

Metallic paint has been the most popular optional on new cars for many years. Recently white has become the new silver, especially with car buyers that are not real enthusiasts.  White has been the most popular new car colour for the past three years. In 2015 more than a fifth (21.4%) of new cars were white compared with less than 1%, 10-years earlier.

In contrast, silver, which was the most popular new car colour through most of the 2000s, now accounts for just over 10% of new car sales. So, now you know what colour affects your used car value………stay with the top 5 boring colours!
