In the article I read they were testing identical cars.
My black work van is particularly bad as there is no headlining in the back part of the van so you get a lot of radiant heat straight off the steel into the cabin. It's not a nice place to be on a 40deg Ozzy summer.
Yet I use to own a black fastback that was much cooler.
