How Does Car Color Affect Resale Value?

When you’re 16 picking the brightest color possible for your vehicle may seem like the best way to express yourself. But now in your 20s or 30s, you might be thinking more about how that color option for your new car will affect its resale value.  

If you are looking for the best resale value for your vehicle, then sticking to a more neutral color option is your best bet. Colors like silvers, reds, and blue often will keep a good chunk of their value. On the other hand, yellows and other bright options may not get you the same return on your investment as a more traditional car color depending on where you are looking to sell your vehicle.
