Non-abrasive waxes are best for black cars, according to Consumer Reports. Abrasive waxes can create fine scratches, swirl marks and a hazy appearance, which is more noticeable on black or dark-colored cars. Several car wax brands, including Meguiar’s and Turtle Wax, offer products specifically designed for use on black vehicles.
Meguiar’s Black Wax is specially formulated with polishing oils to give black and dark-colored cars a deep, glossy finish with no swirl marks, says Meguiars.com. Turtle Wax Deep Black Carnauba Wax is designed to deepen and brighten black pain, restoring color and adding a rich, like-new shine without leaving behind any white residue, states TurtleWax.com.
