The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders released the data today, showcasing that one in five new cars last year were grey, with black being the second most popular choice.

This isn’t the first-time grey has been crowned the winner. Back in 2018, black was once again pipped at the post by grey, coming out on top for the first time. Before this, black and white were the main competitors to win the title, with both alternating the top podium position since 2009. Nearly 61% of car owners colours were in the classic monochrome palette.

The least popular car colours in the palette this time were cream, maroon & pink.

What are your views on this? Do you avoid bold colours when it comes to purchasing a new car, or does it depend on the model?
