UK’s favourite car colour is…
Yep, you guessed it! GREY!
Just when you thought all the gloom was because of winter and Brexit, the official figures from the Society of Motor Manufactures and Traders (SMMT) say we are now a country of loving grey coloured cars in 2018.
Over half a million of us decided that grey was going to be the palette of choice for our new vehicle – that’s 1 in 5 new car registrations if you wanted a little more perspective!
Now, we’re not sure if “silver” falls into the same category or not, as they still represent a huge proportion of the colours we see here on Sussex roads. However, we do see why they have become popular.
Paint technology has stepped up its game over the last few years, with many more variants and finishes now available on new cars from manufacturers. The “flat” greys which are then clear-coated, do look very smart on a sporty little motor like an Alfa or Fiat 500. We also like the dark metallic grey (available on Subaru’s) which you see now on many of the larger saloons and SUV’s which make them have great presence on the road.
No matter what colour you decide, here at Monza Sport we’ll look after them all for your servicing and repairs from our garage in Ashington, West Sussex. We even have courtesy cars available whilst yours is with us. And if you are incredibly lucky, it might be a grey one!
