Men prefer bright car colors

Apparently, men like bold cars painted in bold colors. A new study from iSeeCars.com looked at data from 200,000 inquiries from consumers looking at vehicles for sale, and the results show that men and women have drastically different taste in car colors.

Number 1: Orange

“Orange is the new hot car color when it comes to men’s preferences,” according to Phong Ly, CEO of iSeeCars.com. “The most popular car colors — black, white, and silver — didn’t change dramatically, but what’s striking is how much more interest men have for the non-traditional colors now.”

Interestingly, men are 25 percent more likely to choose an orange car than women.

Number 2: Brown

“With more brown and orange car colors being offered in these segments and the increased interest in these colors by male buyers, color specialists at auto manufacturers seem to have gotten their color forecasts right,” said Phong Ly.

While men are more likely to choose deep brown tones, women prefer gold and beige.

Number 3: Yellow

Yellow is a common color on exotic cars, such as this Lamborghini, but that alone can't explain the striking hue's popularity.

iSeeCars.com attributes some of the popularity of bright colors to shifting attitudes toward muscle cars, which are often available in wild shades to stand out from the crowd.

Number 4: Red

Red is a traditional color for sports cars, and while it came out on top of a similar study in 2013, the addition of other bright hues has pushed red down to fourth place for men.
