Every driver has a preference in car color when shopping for a vehicle, but have you ever wondered which color are the most popular around the globe? Here are the most popular car colors worldwide!

Worldwide Car Color Popularity for 2018

Each year, statistics can change slightly. Now, we have the most recent rankings of worldwide color popularity that were published on November 14, 2018. They are as follows:

Car Color % of Car Owners/Drivers
White 39
Black 17
Gray 12
Silver 10
Natural (Brown/Tan) 7
Red 7
Blue 7
Green 1

While these numbers are helpful to determine trends there’s one thing to keep in mind. A lot of these numbers are dependent on the color options available with models sold at different parts of the world. If certain color options aren’t available at certain places, they can’t be purchased and therefore can’t become popular.

Additionally, these rankings do change from year to year. In comparison to the 2017 rankings, the color white has increased popularity by 2% and the colors silver and natural have decreased in popularity by 1% each.
