How about we do a little informal survey right here. What color do you want on a car, or does it simply not make that big of a difference for you to be concerned with such things? The research found that even though there are now more vibrant exterior colours and personalisation options than ever before, car buyers are still too conservative when it comes to picking paint.

The study was carried out by Nissan to celebrate the personalisation options on the all-new Micra hatchback.
