When you make your model car, choose the colors carefully. Do you want bright colors that will be noticed easily, or cool, fashionable colors? Car manufacturers call in teams of people to help them decide what a car should look like. Stylists and design and production engineers join forces with the sales team to develop cars they hope people will buy. They think about the colors, how much people are prepared to pay, and what features they want, from air-conditioning to special car seats.
Before a new car is launched to the public, detailed models are made and tested for road handling, engine quality, and comfort.
