Second this. My mom got a black minivan, aka the Mercury Monterey , and it attracts the sunlight like anything else. Especially if the seats are darker, and its worse if they're leather. It looks nice , but it sucks in the summer unless the car is parked under some shade. The same principle appleis to anything darker.
Read the third comment by ProfHoff. It has to deal with darker colors being better absorbers of light and thus, radiation/heat. This is why when people live or traverse desert or any hot climates where solar exposure is the constant and fatal , they are usually clothed in white or lighter colors since those do not attract as much heat . Just get anti glare screen protectors and white instantly becomes the best one to travel with, whether you'e in the cold or not.
