Shopping for a new car and your heart is set on a different color? At Landry Automobiles, we're committed to helping our customers find the vehicle of their dreams, while respecting their mechanical AND aesthetic preferences. In this blog post, you'll discover 5 ways to help you choose the best color for your vehicle.

1. The three sure values

Cautious people with a conservative temperament usually opt for all-purpose colors - and that's to their advantage! In fact, in Canada, white is the ideal color for resale. Next come black and silver... classic colors, in short!

2. Colors to match your personality

Researchers have drawn up a typical portrait of motorists driving vehicles of different colors. Will you be surprised to learn that beige vehicles are appreciated by discreet, well-behaved people? And what about bright red vehicles? They're favored by the dynamic - and attention-seeking! Which color represents your personality?

3. Messy colors

If washing your car is a task you always put off, think twice before buying a black or white model. Do you really want to? Be aware that you'll often have to visit a car wash - or get out your garden hose - to preserve your vehicle's "shine"... On the other hand, metallic finishes are excellent for camouflaging dust and slight imperfections. Good to know, isn't it?

4. Unloved colors

If you're in the market for a used car and you're on a tight budget, you're well advised to develop a passion - feigned or sincere - for green, yellow or orange cars. As these hues are generally less popular, their owners have no choice but to display them at low prices to attract buyers. Another advantage of these marginal colors? They're much easier to spot in a crowded parking lot!

5. Accident colors

You may be surprised to learn that there is a link between the color of a vehicle and the likelihood of it being involved in an accident. In fact, researchers have analyzed hundreds of accidents before concluding that the following colors were most often observed at the scene: black, blue, red, gray and silver. That said, there's no need to make a big deal of it: since these colors are popular in general, there's a statistically greater chance of finding them on the roads, period!
