Default i10 color has got to be the worst

Saw a very ugly looking mustard / puke colored i10 last week. That has got to be the worst color ever on indian roads, even worse than that pink/purple of the estilo. Makes an already weird looking i10 look positively ugly.
What was hyundai thinking? More importantly what was that car buyer thinking?

I really like the pearlescent white color, like which comes in swift , corolla , safari etc .... and my Ferrari red Palio

anyways color depends upon the cars, some colors look good on one and bad for another, hate the pink color on estilo, also black color looks very odd in some cars like non-alloy-thin-tyre swifts looks very bad in black color, specially the side profile of the car .....

Mine is an Amber Metallic. I like it in Aveo and Scorpio, and the other cars are dull with that. (Palio, Swift, Indica, Scorpio, Firsta and Aveo Comes in this color in India.

I like Swift in Sky (kind of) blue, Indica in Yellow, Pajero Black and white and any Car in black (except M800).

The colors I dislike is a type of dual gray color in iKon, and olive green in any car. :-)

Skoda in Red looks awkward!

Black and white are the colours that look good on most of the cars.

Red is the favorite, for cars which it goes well. My Swift is red, and my next car, if it is a sporty sedan, will also be red. Second choice is black. White and shades of grey are OK. Hate pink and light shades of blues.

The worst has to be the this pink of CRV and same colored Zen Estilos. Actually don't know what this color is called . In Thailand this is quite a popular color because you see many guys driving cars of this color.

The best is black, even a Logan looks OK in black

Very interesting topic!

As already been pointed out, I also feel that it depends on the model of the car.

Like : Magnesium grey and green shades on fiat palio, carbon bronze pearl on Honda City, black skoda octavia, marcedes(any series) and of course red on my new Indigo CS (waiting for its delivery).

Dislike : The brick red/orange shade on swift -- looks like a pumpkin. Pink shade on any car.

Terribly obscene! I cannot believe.

I want to know if anybody has really bought it.
Why did Honda do it!

Be it any car Black and White look the best and Gold looks the worst. No offence meant to any person owning gold coloured car but it is purely my personal opinion.

My choices-

Best color for a Sedan- White, Silver and Black.
Best color for an SUV- Black.
Hatchbacks look good in bright colors like Red, Orange, White and Blue.

Hey Guys,

I've been noticing the new Swifts (after the recent style upgrade to the rear lights) in the bright Orange color- "Sunlight copper" I think it's called. It looks simply awesome. The Metallic shine really suits the Swift.

But the older swifts in a similar Orange color looks drab. It doesn't have the same metallic tone. Is it just a case of the color losing it's shine or are the new ones a whole different color?

It was not done by Honda. The owner has another earlier gen CR-V which is Yellow & Silver & this one he's got painted Pink & Silver. And he's a middle aged man!
