Unlike most makes, Honda designs seem to present well in white for as long as I can remember. I wouldn't even consider another brand in white but often white Hondas catch me eye.

What's up with that?

The same reason they look good in black - the color hides the bad body lines....

The new Accord, Civic and Fit don't look as good in white.

I thought blue was the colour of choice for most Honda.

OTOH of the brands that never get the white right, BMW must be top of the list. It's like oh colour, yeah that's extra.

Not all.

Black only seems to mildly work on the hatchback to hide all the ugly fakeness.

The devil is in the details. Base models look homely but my neighbor's new Civic Sport looks fantastic in metallic white, same goes for the Civic Si. It's remarkable to me just how much the small details of the Si trim make this current gen. go from blah to great (and that's not just in white).

Interesting question. All cars look great in white in my opinion. Our entire family seems to all get white cars as they do not show dirt as much as a darker color, and they sparkle nicely on a day full of sunshine. I have had a white car since just after I got my license which is over 20 years ago. :)

I prefer black. Sure, it gets dirty but it sort of hides all the weird ways of today's nutsoid designers and doesn't attract cops as much.

That looks like Championship White on a regular Civic hatch?
