The Most Popular Color for Cars By State Compare to National Average

The color of your car could be saying things about you that you didn’t even know about yourself. For example, did you know that a black car says you are powerful, but have a touch of elegance? If yellow has caught your eye it may mean deep inside you are joyful and have a great sense of humor. Sometimes our color choices may be out of our hands. Like getting that great deal with our much anticipated tax returns or it may just be a sense of practicality….who wants to wash a white car every day when grey hides so much!

There is a huge chasm of choices. An article by iseecars in February of 2017 noted that 30.9% of Texans preferred brown pick-up trucks over any other choice on the market. With a population of 26.96 million in 2014 that may say a lot about the state and how they live and work. From 12 lanes of big city concrete roads in Austin and Dallas, to one lane dirt by-ways in Rice and Waco there is a special love of durability, practicality and especially heart in what working Texans prefer when it comes to their modern transportation.

Arizona’s choice is yellow which may show how a bright color is important to keep their vehicles cool during their brutal summers.
