Interesting topic. But you can't generalize about this. E.g. Some one may like swift in white like me, others may find red or black more. SO its very difficult. I myself prefer metallic colors more over solid colors. Specially silver, as small scratches are not easily visible. Also maintaining silver color is easy.

Overall white is the most popular color & suits most of the cars. I read somewhere that almost 40 % cars sold are white

My favorites are:

Swift : White
Punto : White
BMW: Black
Alto: Silver
Santro: Black
Safari: White
Gypsy: Dark Blue
Manza: White
Vista: White
Etios: Golden

Mainly i like white cars but get irritated while maintaining it

Interesting thread. But as Aniket mentioned, its hard to generalize. I personally is a big fan of Silver, followed by Black.

But generally, I feel that the signature colour in which a car is advertised at launch, looks the best on that specific brand / model.
It used to be silver always, but in the past couple of years there is a change in that trend e.g.; Polo, Punto in red, Linea T-Jet in the Sunbeam beige etc.

Black Jazz with a nice set of alloys looks smashing.

Another car which is missing so far is Ritz.
IMO it looks best in that Mettalic 'Blue Blaze', but see it only from the front.

Wifey drives that. Got that color 'coz I thought it suits the car best, though she thought silver is better. BIG mistake - Am reminded of that ever so often!

But the car looks good in profile too, short overhangs and all, especially with alloys. The rear is what is pretty weird. Anyway, good practical hatch with good petrol motor.
