I've been in a black Civic for the last 6 years and would like to switch it up, but I'm just not sure what to do and don't want to regret my decision.

I know silver was the most popular color of the 2000's, but it's kind of passé at this point, isn't it? The most popular color on the road these days as many of you probably know is white, but I'm just not a white car kind of guy. What does everyone think of the meteorite metallic gray? I'd LOVE that sonic gray but unfortunately it doesn't come on the EX model which I plan to get.

If the current car-buying trends continue the streets will be filled with nothing but greyscale crossovers.
This is why I'm determined to advocate for anything that will #keepcarscolorful

Your question is unanswerable, because there is no "best" color. Each option will have its proponents and detractors. Different strokes for different folks. Buy what you like.

Agreed. Despite my statement above, I think we can agree that ABM is inarguably superior to any other option. I mean, obviously.

I was a huge Lunar Silver Metallic fan myself, but moreso with the 10th gen where it went great with the black trim. It kind looks like any other car this gen.

Will probably go Sonic Grey if I have the option

I'm driving the 10th gen in lunar silver, but it's because they didn't do SGP in the sedan.
SGP with all the black trimmings and emblems would be dope. A sport sedan with black emblems looks the best IMO.

White hides dirt, dings and scratches the best but it looks pretty boring on the models out so far.

Si and CTR should change that.

I got sonic grey in my hatch because at the time it was rare to see... at this point, I’m tired of seeing it EVERYWHERE I go. I got my si in white because the wife and I couldn’t agree on a color, I would’ve went with ABM, but she was against that...

with all that said, I really don’t think you can go wrong with any color. Even black looks amazing, but it gets dirty way too quick.

If all the colors were sitting in front of me I probably would have picked the Sonic Grey Pearl. My second choice would have been the Meteoroid Grey Metallic but only the Platinum White Pearl was on the lot at the time (one EX and one Touring). I probably should have been patient and waited for some other colors to arrive but my salesman verified there was only one Touring due in next month and patience was never one of my virtues. The Metallic in the white is very striking so I bought it. I guess I got caught up in the moment.
