I had read somewhere in a magazine that the most popular car desired by Indian Girls / women was a Pink CRV

The worst colour I have ever seen on a car currently is the Pink Zen Estilo - Yuck !!

One of the best colours nowadays on different cars -

White Civic
Pink Lancer ( A friend owned it )
Tata Sumo Grande - Sunset Copper Orange ( I think that's what they call it )

Black to me looks great on any car. I loathe the Pink Zen Estilo.

The new colour that you see is called sunlight copper. I think it was made available just after the SX4 was launched.

And I agree, it does suit the swift.
Thanks for clearing that up.. I'd choose that color if I was buying a swift

Sorry to be waking this thread up but couldn't resist. Saw a - hold your breath - Yellow Merc today.

Can't get it out of my system. Yellow Coloured Mercedes C Class. Why, oh why. I'm sure he did a custom paint job, this guy. But for the life of me, why !?

Like : Black (Its a very difficult to maintain, but worth the looks )
Hate : Pink (Grr)

On a practical note, (Cool silver -- >My Bro's WagonR ) its the light bluish silver colour is very easy to maintain, hided scratches and doesn't look dirty even if it is.

Why we need to debate here since ultimately beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder !

Best colors - Metallic/Base Red and White, Corolla's Pearl finished white
Safe colors White and Silver- coz you don't see watermarks in them after a wash.
Worst colors - Black coz it looks awful with scratches in the sun.

In general I am a fan of blue colour. However I have not seen any shades of blue particularly attractive on any car.

I like blacks and whites in general for most sedans, one particular colour, Misty Violet of Honda Civic, looks very good to me and to my wife. Of course the same colour may look horrible on a Santro or Estillo! Even the Carbon Bronze looks pretty on a Civic.
