Of the total number of accidents per 10,000 models on the road, the Vauxhall Zafira had the most incidents in the four-year period, with 511 accidents for every 10,000 models, according to Rivervale Leasing.
The Astra came second for the most accidents by this measure, with 363 accidents per 10,000 models on the road.
According to Axalta, the top five models all have one thing in common: their popular standard colours are grey or blue.
Kevin Welling, training academy manager for Axalta Refinish in the UK and Ireland, said: "Colours like grey and blue are particularly deceptive, especially to the naked eye. They come in a myriad of different hues and a variety of finish effects, all of which have to be matched accurately. Our latest spectrophotometers ensure accurate colour matching, as they use special LED measuring optics to read the colour and the effect in under a minute. This measurement data is transferred directly to our colour management software and corrected automatically against over 200,000 formulas, making it easy for refinishers to find the perfect colour match.
