Well, Black always rules in any cars. (though its a pain to maintain)

Can even imagine especially the big cars (Merce, BMWs etc other than Shining Black)

If they are not in black, probably they wont be having such reputations.

If you ask me then I love Black cars irrespective of which model it is. But I know that many cars don't really look great in Black. If I ever get to buy a car I'll either go for a Black Lancer or a Scarlet Red Maruti Suzuki SX4.

I like the Rosso Brunello more, but I got the Brilliant Silver..

Silver is understated and elegant.. while the Rosso Brunello stands out (in a classy way)

Factor in auto/bike/cycle density along your regular commute route. If density is sparse, listen to your heart; if density is high, go for Silver.

I like regular cars to be painted black, white or gray. Somehow I don't find colors such as red, green, blue, yellow etc suite most of these cars, except on sports models such as Lambo, Porsche and Ferrari..

According to a study, the following are the most common colors seen for cars, and I see no reason why

1. Silver – 25 percent
2. Black – 23 percent
3. White – 16 percent
4. Gray – 13 percent

See the link

How come most of you missed this?

FORD Fiesta 1.6 S Aquaris Blue

Most of the cars look the best in white and black as 'varunroy' has rightly pointed out.
