Top car colour in Co Kildare has a silver lining for motorists

Silver is the most popular car colour for used cars registered in Co Kildare followed by black and then blue. Vehicle data experts said this trend is currently roughly in line with national preferences. The next most popular colour is purple followed by yellow. The data also shows that the 1.4 litre engine is the engine of choice for Co Kildare people, followed by the 1.6 litre engine, and then the 2.0 litre engine: consistent with the national trend. The hatchback is the most popular body type in Kildare with over 70,000 units registered in the county. This is also in-line with the national trend. John Byrne of, said: “Kildare buying habits mirror very closely the national trend in virtually every respect. "The only noticeable difference is the marginal decline in popularity of the colour blue in Kildare. "Possibly, this may be because the Lilywhites don’t want to be reminded of the county colours of one of their close neighbours! "Interestingly, on that point, there is no evidence of the colour white being more popular in Kildare, its popularity in the county is, once again, consistent with the national trend.” END
