Crazy Colors on Small Cars

Good things come in small packages—in this case, small cars are a better vehicle for crazy colors. It’s the idea that less is really more; loud, odd-ball colors outfit cars at a level that larger vehicles (or even average sized vehicles) would just look gaudy in.

There’s a reason why white, black, and silver are the top color options for automakers—they work on pretty much any vehicle. Bright colors just look better in small doses and that’s why cars like the Ford Fiesta or Chevrolet Spark can get away with colors like “Lime Squeeze” and “Techno Pink.” Even if you’ve never seen those specific colors just imagine the hue they imply and apply it onto a van or SUV—it’s not pretty.

But it’s just not pronounced colors that are getting the spotlight via super compact cars—special finishes and unique details have also found a home with smaller vehicles. The matte finish trend has been growing over the years and the Hyundai Veloster Turbo offers this option for an extra grand. Who knew the alternative for bright, shiny colors—a flat, almost dull hue—can look so good on a car. Then, there’s the Mini Cooper. The Mini has been notorious for all sorts of designs that break the mold—from flag patterns, racing stripes, and more (with unique colors to boot—the Mini can work it all.
