Johannesburg - Earlier in January, we reported on popular car paint jobs in South Africa.

The most popular vehicle colour in 2017 was white, followed by silver and grey, according to Lightstone Auto.

Hein Coetzee, Head of Commercial at Lightstone Auto, said: "There are a number of factors responsible for the popularity of light-coloured, and particularly white, vehicles in South Africa.

"White-painted vehicles generally attract lower insurance premiums. This due to the cost of repainting the car in a body repair centre is normally lower than that of another colour vehicle (colour-matching, metallic paint, etc)."
