    Default Graphite grey vs silky silver color for Alto

    I want to find the merits and demerits of both the mentioned colors and have a few questions in this regard.

    1) Though I want to opt for graphite grey but I am afraid that it will absorb too much heat in summer (just like black) as compared to white or silky silver.


    2) Want to go for silky silver due to the reason mentioned above (graphite grey absorbing more heat), but I think that and some others also told me that silky silver will fade away too quickly because its light.

    Are my assumptions regarding graphite grey absorbing more heat in summer and silky silver fading away sooner are correct.

    Any suggestions and comments please.

    White is best for the most of Pakistani environment due to dust and heat.

    depends on fol factors:
    1. Where the car is being driven.if in islamabad ill keep a darker shade as less dust. In rural n dusty environments go for lighter shades
    2. How keen are u to maintain a car. Can u take out time to wax n clean it?if yes ill recommend darker shade
    3. How careful a driver are you. If ur prune to accidents dings n dongs etc go for lighter shades.
    No colour fades if u take care of it.

    Go for Graphite Grey. Silky Silver is so dull and boring.

    graphite grey looks more cool
    1 more prob with silky silver is that it very tough to match the colour while touching
    very very tough to match
    may b u have noticed the silver colour car having n e peice touch can be judge very easily if it passes near by u

    Scorpion. I didnt ask for which color should I go for rather I was asking to compare the two colors based on heat absorbing issue of graphite grey and color fading of silky silver.

    No doubt that graphite grey looks dashing and I personally like that color. It seems to be the best color in alto. But I am going for white because of heat and dust issue.

    Thank you all guys for the comments.
    God bless you all.
