CarBuzz infographic illustrates Geneva motor show color trendsMon, 02 Apr 2012 00:00:00 -0700
CarBuzz has put together an infographic cataloging the new cars unveiled at this year's Geneva motor show by color.
The show, which took place last month, saw the unveiling of a host of production and concept cars and CarBuzz has taken the time to provide a clear indication of the color trends that featured in this year's event.
The infographic indicates that the colors currently on trend are silver and white, while blue and red were the color of choice for a generous share of the unveiled models.
Silver cars that particularly caught the eye this year included the Pininfarina Cambiano Concept, Bertone's ‘Nuccio' Concept, Infiniti Emerg-E Concept, the Ford Tourneo Custom and Honda's NSX.
Fiat's 500L and Jaguar's new Sportbrake were first seen in white, along with the Toyota FT-Bh concept. Volvo's highly anticipated V40 appeared in both silver and white, possibly the best indication of the exterior color trend that was seen at this year's show.
The Italians wore their traditional reds with pride with the F12 Berlinetta and Lamborghini's Aventador concept.
It is worth noting that cutting-edge concepts were conspicuously absent at this Geneva show, with the majority of models featured at the production stage. As such production models are more conservative in their colors, with silver and white being examples of typical models that will be on the world's roads within the year.
