2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Not Very Diverse
March 01, 2011
Our Crosstour is in a scintillating shade I like to call Appliance White. And every Crosstour that I've run into on the streets of Los Angeles has been silver or gray, like the model shown above -- a safe sea of neutrals, with not a red, green or blue in sight. Turns out the Crosstour only comes in seven colors and four of them are neutrals -- black, silver, gray and white.
A company named DuPont Automotive takes a look each year at the most popular car colors in North America. White was the most popular shade in 2010, followed by -- you guessed it -- black, silver and gray. Perhaps Honda and other manufacturers are paying attention to consumer preferences and adjusting their color palettes accordingly. In any case, it's a shame there's not more color on the streets.
Does the model that you drive come in a wide or narrow range of shades?
