After a five-year hiatus, black has become the most favorite color for new cars in the United Kingdom.

According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), 515,970 new vehicles were registered across the nation in 2017 finished in black, which accounts for a market share of 20.3 percent and a 0.2 percent increase over 2016.

At the same time, grey has become more popular by 2.4 percent, with a market share of 19.7 percent, whereas the previous favorite, white, dropped to the third place, losing 1.5 percent compared to the year before, and being favored by 19 percent of new car buyers.

Missing the podium by 3 percent is blue, which is the only primary color to make it to the Top 5, followed by silver, which saw a 0.1 percent decline.

Red, green, and orange follow in sixth, seventh, and eighth place, while bronze slides in on the ninth place and yellow completes the chart.

When it comes to the most popular cars sold throughout the UK last year, the Ford Fiesta was the winner. Most buyers of the supermini wanted theirs finished in blue, whereas the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus, which follow it, were favored in grey and blue, respectively.
