What are the Best Car Colors to Buy?

Are you in the market for a new vehicle and wondering what car color to choose? When purchasing a new Subaru hatchback, sedan, or SUV, you'll want to consider color in your final decision. But, what are the best car colors to buy? We've got the answer.

Why Does Car Color Matter?

Choosing a car color can seem like a trivial thing. What's the difference in choosing a red Subaru over a silver one? Does it even matter? It does. If you're hoping to resell your Subaru at any point or trade it in for a decent price, you'll want to choose a popular color. While resale value can vary by location, make, and model, car color can also make a difference.

A popular color will make your car more attractive to potential buyers down the road. According to Kelley Blue Book (KBB), today's most popular car color tends to remain in demand for at least five years-so you don't have to worry about selling tomorrow!

Best Car Colors for Sedans & Hatchbacks

Looking at Subaru Impreza or Legacy? According to Kelly Blue Book (KBB), sedans and hatchbacks are most valuable in silver, white, and light brown. The best color to choose is, hands down, silver-but any of these colors will hold their value over time.

Best Car Colors for SUVs, Minivans & Trucks

Considering a Subaru Forester or Outback? According to Kelly Blue Book (KBB), SUVs, minivans, and trucks are most valuable in white, silver, and black. These colors have held the top three spots for nearly ten years-and the experts don't see them going out of style anytime soon.

Do you already own a Subaru? Is it a different color than the ones we mentioned? You can always opt to wrap or paint your Subaru a different color. In some cases, changing your car color can add value back.
