    I have a Sun Fusion, I only saw a total of 2 others that own a Sun Fusion in my area. Sacramento Region. One time a Taxi Driver pointed at me and was joking around about my yellow car.

    Please explain this to me! I have never understood why anyone would buy a white car. (Yes, I know many do.)

    Here's the deal, as I see it:

    Blue is seen as an aggressive color, and I personally know Silicon Valley executives who own blue cars.

    Gold is an interesting statement by itself, and may be correlated with one's wealth, or perhaps one's desire for wealth.

    Silver is making yet another statement about wealth, perhaps being correlated with one having adequate means, or somewhat more than adequate means, but not trying to be blatant about it. This color also shows dirt less than the other colors.

    White is the "Everyman"/"Everycar" color, and outside of Florida, it is probably the default choice.

    I like the extra-cost Prius c Four "Moonglow" white, but I would not pay even one extra dollar for it.

    Black is yet another statement, although this color is almost impossible to keep clean.

    AMEN TO THAT!!!

    I just saw a new orange 2015 (maybe 2016?) C at my dealership last week and was like... ewwwwww

    Habanero is perfect!
    After a lifetime of grey cars - I feared the bright Habanero was a sign of a mid-life crisis but it is fantastic - looks AWESOME with the black steel rims and snow tires to be honest rather than the silver aluminum ones - and when my step-daughter is driving we refer to it as "safety orange" because she is umm.... learning and a slow driver right now...

    I bought a used 2013 in ....Silver! If I could have bought new, well, the Lime Green or Summer Rain. If the "Yellow" was actually yellow instead of yellow/orange, yellow would have been my pick.

    Not a fan of black, red or orange(sorry!).

    There is a yellow called Fusion Yellow, the orange or Habenero is a bright orange that was offered from 2012 to 2014. For 2015 Toyota came out with Tangerine Splash which replaced Habenero. The Tangerine Splash is a less bright orange with a yellow tint.

    Fun colors! I traded my 2010 bright blue Mazda 3 hatchback and I found no color when I looked at different websites. Gray, Silver, White or Moonglow were the only choices. The salesman told me Silver was the most popular color in LA. No imagination!

    Not sure its no imagination, it's about fitting an image. I have silver cars, and my Habenero Prius C. When I am in LA on business I drive the silver car, as the Habenero car is hard to drive when your in a suit on business. I save the Habenero for weekends and car shows.Bright White was discontinued and only Moonglow White is available, that has a green sparkle to the paint. My understanding is white is the most popular color in Japan.

    What? No one has brought up Electric Lime Metallic? Personally I prefer white but I let my 4 year old pick the color because I was trading in the Tundra and in his mind "daddy drives a truck" he loves the car because he picked it (the color at least). The color has grown on me, I see a few but not many. There are a lot of Cs around here and I get to be a little different from all of the grey, white and autumn rain.

    My least favorite color would be black. Blemishes are way to evident on black. you get a scratch and you cant help but see it. And if your washing mitt has any dirt in it you get really bad swirls on the surface that are a pain to buff out.
