36% own dogs.
Not all dogs travel in cars but those that do BLACK is the worst color for dog hairs.

Not all vehicles have black cloth interior but many do.

I have black now in my 2009 Versa and every bit of dust shows up. Vacuum. Vacuum. Vacuum.

Give me anything but black.

I haven't owned a vehicle for many years, but I rent one now and then.
I'll probably be buying one soon, and based on my experience with the rental cars,
a black interior will be a disqualifier (looking at you, Mazda). Small objects like pens
and cell phones easily disappear in a black interior.

I have a car with charcoal gray fabric seats and after 8 years, they look like new. My last car had beige and they got really dirty. Especially when new jeans left a little dye on them. I wouldn't have beige again if I could help it. I also hate leather for all kinds of reasons.

With me, it depends on the exterior color of the vehicle.
Two vehicles that I once owned(sold not to to long ago) my 66 Tbird had bright white seats, and highlights in the interior matched to body color.
My Continental MK V had a black body with tan interior.
Great color combination.
My Corvette has tan seats, with tan and black highlights in the interior.
With the magnetic red body, again, a great color combination.

Bob.

Well. Almost. Black SHOWS everything. Makes the car look dirtier much quicker.

Those in apartments and condos - a little tougher to drag out that shop vac to vacuum the interior with black.

I must be weird, because I've had 4 cars with black leather (two oft those also black exterior) and three with stone/beige, and never found the black offensively hot. It may well have been hotter if you measured the surface temperature, but for all practical purposes no difference.

I love the look of red or tan leather. White/cream leather makes the interior look super classy and refined...for the short time until it gets stained...


Black or grey is too vanilla and plain.


I think blue leather would be pretty cool too. Don't see many of those.

I'm not keen on black interiors. It's just too dark. The dash is black on every car now, and the console is usually black and the carpet is black. The black upholstery is just too much.

White or light tan is my favorite interior color. My 2003 Camry was red salsa pearl (exterior) with a tan interior, tan dash and tan carpet and it was beautiful. I should have kept that car and ditched the husband who made me sell it! LOL.

The 2018 Camry is offered with a "cockpit red" leather interior. I think it looks completely hideous.

I& you want more of a variety of interior color choices then you have to get a Bentley, or a Rolls Royce.
