The SMMT has released figures of Britain’s most popular car colour with the grey dominating the list. According to the study, out of the 1.63 million new cars sold in the UK last year, 397,197 (24.3%) sported grey paint followed by black (19.9%), and white (17.4%). Elsewhere, the most popular car colour 2020 list gives a familiar sense, with Blue takes the fourth spot. Subsequently, we have red, silver, orange, green – in the opposite order to 2019 – yellow and bronze.
Contrary to a decline in used cars prices with age, this year we saw an unusual rise in their value mainly due to pandemic. The demand for secondhand cars increased owing to people avoiding public transport. Moreover, people who had the jobs and money had used it to buy vehicles because they couldn’t go on holiday. Considering this situation, we advise you to stay vigilant with vehicle enquiry and run a car check before selling or purchasing a used vehicle.
