If you have a red car, you’re likely to be confident, live life in the fast lane, and be spontaneous.

The bigger picture

Karen Haller said: “We have an emotional response and react to colour every waking moment. Colour can change how we think, feel, and behave in an instant!

“The colours we choose to surround ourselves can help support how we feel, how we want to feel or how we want others to perceive us.”

Aidan Rushby, CEO of car financing app Carmoola, added: “Buying a new car is one of life’s greatest pleasures and the colour of the vehicle is clearly going to play a part in that.”
