In New Zealand, the popularity of car colours vary, and we can only hazard a guess as to why some car colours are more popular than others!

Here are this beautiful country’s favourite colour choices for their vehicles:


Silver is a popular choice with many kiwis choosing it as their preferred colour in a car. Maybe that’s because it’s attractive, maybe it’s because there’s plenty of silver cars around, or maybe people see silver as stylish and elegant.


White cars are popular in NZ and many other countries. White can look great on any car type, and also is known for having better visibility than other colour cars.


Blue is a lovely neutral colour that suits any demographic looking to purchase a car, which is probably what makes it so popular


Black resembles sleek, suave and smooth. It’s no wonder that black would a popular car choice amongst the New Zealand population, who know style so well.
