Which colour?

I know it's subjective, but I'm looking to buy a new 595 and the dealer has two- a white one with red mirror covers and Abarth stickers, and a red one with white mirror covers and stickers,otherwise specs are the same. I can't pick between them. Thoughts?

Re: Which colour?

If you're bothered by practical considerations, white is both easier to maintain and noticeably cooler in summer.

Fiat red paint is notoriously prone to chipping, plus any scratches and blemishes will be less obvious on a white car.

A white car will also use marginally less fuel when the A/C is in use.

Re: Which colour?

If it's going to live outside in the Aussie sun then go for the white - practical but boring. And red fades...

Re: Which colour?

Iím going to vote for white too, especially imagining the (optional) chequered roof on it... you can have the graphics in black or red

I love my xsr's grey for the simple reason that it doesn't ever look dirty.

White. Far easier to match should it get damaged and ages far slower than red.

Re: Which colour?

Thanks everybody. I guess I needed some kind of validation for my choice. White is indeed a better colour for Australia on a few levels. Also from brief research on the classic 595 it seems to be the more traditional livery. Now I need to have a convincing argument for my upgrade from a MY13 Fiat Pop to a MY 2018 Abarth 595 for my better half...
