In summary, the results of this study showed that there was no significant relationship between the two variables of "feeling comfortable" and "beauty" with "car color", but There is a significant relationship between the "feeling of low vehicle consumption", "feeling of environmentally friendly" and "being prestigious " and the type of colors studied.
