Highly trendy, symbolic, and personal, the colors we prefer can say a lot about ourselves and our environment. In the automotive industry, vehicle colors are heavily researched to satisfy buyers. Each year, Global 500 coatings supplier BASF releases its color trend forecast. With many people looking ahead to 2021, the coating expert has revealed its top three vehicle colors for North America.
According to the company, the North American market desires colors that signify grace and simplicity. A company press release states, “grace and simplicity will be the look of deep techno-sophistication.”
Automotive color trends differed in other parts of the globe. In the Asia-Pacific region, “key colors reflect a positive, flexible attitude for change, action, and the future,” the press release notes. The top color for this region is a soft, minty green. In Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, a muted tan color is on trend. This color reflects the region’s need for “soothing, calming colors with bold, new, distinct positions.”
The ability to choose your vehicle’s color may seem reserved to those who can purchase a new vehicle. That’s not the experience at Car City! With over 500 vehicles in locations from Cadillac, Michigan to South Bend, Indiana, Car City’s inventory of quality used cars come in an array of colors.
