I read recently that the number of cars stolen has risen by 9% according to figures published by the National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (NaVCIS).
Many of the 75,000 odd incidents feature luxury vehicles targeted by organised gangs, but the humble Ford Escort managed to make it into the top ten of stolen cars, despite not being produced for over a decade.
What is the most popular choice for a car colour? What makes it so popular?
I recently saw that Axalta Coating Systems have produced a Global Automotive Colour Popularity Report and thought you might like to see a summary of their findings and the worldwide top ten choices:
1 - White. For the seventh year running, white is the most popular colour, accounting for 39% of vehicles worldwide. People relate white with top quality, and the popularity of the iPod and various other Apple products should not be underestimated.
2 - Black. In second place with 16% of worldwide sales, black like white is perceived to be a colour of luxury and quality.
