Only Maruti & Hyundai offer a wide palette of colours. Chevy, especially, has some pretty neat options for the Spark & Beat.

Mahindra's flagship product (Scorpio 4x4) is offered in two colours, beat that, one of those have a dual tone that doesn't really suit its character!!
Better than that, when I bought my Ikon, the top end ZXi hd only 3 colour options, the lower variant had 8 (including the three from ZXi trim) to choose from. Although in this case I wasn't complaining.

Many manufacturers also limit the color options for lower trim levels. For Example Scorpio LX only comes with Silver, Rocky beige and Black, the popular colors like white are reserved for more pricey SLE and VLX trim levels. Since Scorpio is the best selling SUV in the class most buyers do not mind the compromise.
Mahindra did the same thing with Logan when it was initially launched, they offered just black and silver in the base trim level. Thanks to the high pricing, boxy styling this car never set the sales charts on fire plus the competition like Indigo, CS and DZire offered better value to buyers. Now after the car sales dipped they offered all the so called premium colors like white for the base variant.
I think VW is doing a similar mistake with the lowest variant of the newly launched Polo. Firstly they do not have Sales and Service infrastructure and market confidence yet to take the market leaders Maruti and Hyundai head on, Plus by limiting color choices to Just White and Red they are promoting their higher trim specs variants but they are also limiting their sales.
