This is a celebration of yellow.
Once upon a time colour and a car’s size had little relationship. These days yellow is the colour of small and cute. I gathered these over the closing months and have assembled them to celebrate yellow.
The Polo has a hint of orange to it.
The Smart roadster showcases chrome yellow, a colour the BMW 2002 wore well.
The Ka cheats with gold or metallic yellow, with a green cast.
We are back to whitish yellow or primrose on the New Beetle.
The Fabia shows warm yellow and winter wheels.
Hyundai – good on colour – chose this beige yellow for this i20.
This is a Suzuki Ignis three-door sport. That’s worth an article.
The Nissan Juke, a DTW favourite/hate object also uses warm yellow. This is the best colour for this brave little car.
I thought this was a Daihatsu Cuore. But no: the rub-strips shout Micra if you’re not asleep. You don’t see them in this colour very often.
The Mini is chrome yellow and it suits it. Mini now offer a fabulous flat orange which looks as good. Anyone ordering this car in metallic grey should consider a Polo instead.
Finally, an Agila in chrome yellow or a darker primrose. There’s a great tension between the utility vibe of the shapes and the jolliness of the paint. Dacia (utility) have not shown any awareness of this, have they?
