What is the safest color for cars? Our guide will explain how to choose the safest car color for your next vehicle purchase.

The main safety factor for car colors is their visibility, which means how easily — and from what distance — can other drivers see you coming on the road. Which color makes you easiest to see on the road? And which colors are the most dangerous?

There is a lot of thinking that goes into nearly everything else about buying a new car — like what interior and exterior equipment are, how the engine is running, and its audio technology.

But erhaps the most enjoyable part of the process is deciding what color your new vehicle should have. And as it happens, this could also be the most important choice. As it turns out, the color you choose may be a factor in your chances of getting into an accident.

Accordingly, silver is the most popular car color, with white as the near second. However, White outperforms Silver in his safety ratings, according to earlier research by.

According to the study, white cars are 12 percent less prone to an accident than black cars, regardless of the time of day. Cream-colored, yellow and beige cars were also close behind white.

In addition to black, the most dangerous vehicle colors are gray (11 percent higher risk), silver (10 percent higher risk), blue (7 percent higher risk) and red (7 percent higher risk). (By the way, if you own one, you have a higher risk of getting your car stolen, so here are some others.)

Although white is rated as the safest car color at any time of the day, all cars potentially face a higher risk of crash when there is less visibility, e.g. B. when entering or during the night hours, dusk or dawn.
