Performance, technology, comfort… many and important factors influence the choice of a vehicle. Another of them, although it seems very secondary, is:
the color. Because how many times have you heard that that color completely changes the look of a car? Certainly a lot. However, you should know that this element affects not only the appearance. In fact, even depending on the one you choose, you can save yourself a trip to the workshop and therefore the associated costs.
The fact is that cars spend a lot of time in the sun, either for long drives or because many are parked on the street and not in an underground parking garage. And one of the consequences of this
excessive sun exposure and heat is paint wear. You just need to pass by a body shop and paint shop and count how many cars are waiting to be renewed due to the deterioration of the body.
That’s why you should pay special attention to the tone with which you choose your next vehicle, especially now that there are so many of them and their different finishes.
It is well known that the color black is one of the most common among motorists, as it offers elegance and sobriety, even knowing that it is a color that absorbs much more heat than white or lighter shades. According to this logic, they should be the ones most affected by the sun, but they are not. In fact, it is one of the most resistant to the passage of time, although there are better ones. It is the case of the
neutral tonesi.e. grey, brown and light blue or beige, which keeps the shine longer.
On the other hand, the most vibrant and striking shades are the ones that fade the fastest, as is the case with
red and yellow. The most normal thing is that they eventually end up pink and gray respectively.
