469138489 It seems like every decade certain colors for cars go in and out of style. At the turn of the century, silver was the hottest color on the market. That isn’t really so today. While silver reigned ever since the late 90’s, it has found itself being overtaken by some simpler colors. Accurate Auto Body, a collision repair center in Colorado, has seen this trend surface with the kinds of cars going through our body shops.

According to PPG Industries, 25 percent of cars supplied last year were white, up 3 percent from the previous year. The next two common colors were black, and then silver. White has been on a steady rise since the early 1990s, and it has finally usurped silver as the most popular color. Many argue that the reason for this trend of monotone colors falls with modern appliances. With the advent of the iPhone, and many other Apple products, white has found itself as a color of status, and that notion has permeated into every market including the automobile industry. But Apple isn’t the only big influence on the market. Black’s return can be attributed to the myriad phone and mobile PC companies that have opted for the darker shade for their gadgets. From Samsung to LG, black has simply returned to prominence because everything else that is modern and slick is also black. Together, these two colors have supplanted silver as America’s most popular color for automobiles.

Aside from the top 3, there are some more interesting colors that have gained popularity in 2014. Here’s a look at some of those colors:

1- Tangerine Orange Pearl

2- Matte Gray

3- Rebel Blue

4- Citrus Peel Pearl

5- Grabber Blue

6- Gotta Have It Green

7- Grape Ice

8- Tangerine Scream
