What your car color says about you

Is there really a difference between silver and gray? Yes, Cooperman says.

"The gray car driver doesn't want to stand out," Cooperman says. And between silver and gray, the latter is more nondescript. Gray doesn't need (or want) to be as flashy as silver, projecting more dignity, tradition and maturity.

The driver of a gray car cares less about status and more about the status quo. As the fourth most popular car color in the U.S., gray is another neutral tone. It's just not as loud as the first three colors.

"Gray is popular on all types of vehicle sizes and brands," Axalta Coating Systems' Lockhart says. "Light grays, dark grays and grays with a slight hue offer a nice variety in this color space."
