Should you buy a black car?

Black is one of the most popular colours when it comes to buying a car. Meanwhile, there is no denying the fact that the black colour is the most beautiful and classy colour on a vehicle. Despite of all the good looks, bringing home a black beauty requires a lot to be kept in mind. Here are some of its pro and cons of choosing black that need to be considered.


Visual appeal

A brand new, shiny, well-detailed black car looks extraordinary and dramatic. It enhances a car's curves, creases and contours. They appear immaculate and flawless. With the color, it leads your eyesight beyond the actual color.

Higher resale value

Black is among the most popular colour for used cars. Being an in-demand color, it usually have higher resale values because it is easier to find scratches and dents on a black car than with a light color.


Higher maintenance

The moment you get a black beauty home, be ready to spend thousands on the maintenance. From scratches to marks, every time you take your vehicle out for a spin. You also have to keep in mind to use the proper detailing tools for frequent car washes, rubbing, polishing, and overall cleaning.

An oven in hot weather

The black color is famous for its thermal properties. It is because the black absorbs the sun's heat. If you leave your black car under the sun rays, it leads to increase the overall temperature of your cabin and you will struggle and have your air conditioning working overtime.

Higher price

The biggest disadvantage of bringing black beauty home that it is priced higher than usual due to its high demand.

More dust visible on black

It seem to attract more dust and bird poop than any other color. Your black car will look awesome after wash, then it will go back to looking manky.  No matter what you do protect it from dust, it will just keep circling.

So, these were some reasons that need to be taken care of while buying black beauty!
