What is the relevance of this piece?

In the resale market, several factors regulate the resale value of a car, but the colour also plays a role which most of the Indians are unaware of. Through this article, we aim to educate the masses about the colours that mostly fetch less or more money in the resale market.

Black

Generally, most people embrace all things black. For example, from shirts to smartphones and wristwatches, individuals admire the colour black. However, when it comes to black cars, a broad bulk of Indians believe the colour to be a bad omen. A satisfactory number of Indians do not purchase black coloured cars and therefore, their value in the resale market is less compared to other colours.

White

While black is considered a bad omen, white is hailed as auspicious in India because of which, the Indian streets are filled with a huge number of white cars. In the resale market, white-coloured cars fetch more money.

Grey and silver

Grey and silver colour schemes relax perfectly between black and white colour schemes. Therefore, silver or grey-coloured cars are widely purchased by Indian car users. In short, these two colours also reap suitable deals in the resale market.

Last but not the least, the resale value of colours such as red, blue, yellow, brown, maroon or orange depends on the model and other factors but they are resold at a lower price because a sizable population do not prefer these colours.
