    If you could wish for a new/different color for a Prius, what would it be?

    What do you think of this Volvo XC60 brown color on a Prius?

    Does Volvo actually call that color "brown"? At least on my monitor, within that picture it almost has a bronze or gold look to it.

    I don't know. Considering the usual criticism is that the Prius color pallet is too conservative, hard to champion a new addition as being "brown". But it looks nice to me.

    I'm pretty conservative with my color likes anyway. It's hard for me to say, I always want to see the finished product first. I think I'd like some choice as to deeper metalics like the Blizzard Pearl that centered around red.

    Your right. I think Volvo calls it Terra Bronze Metallic.

    I think they could use a burgundy/wine color.

    I would have bought the dark gray if it was more like the metallic gun-metal gray found on other Toyotas like the corolla. The winter gray was too flat and purple/bluish for me.

    Yes. I almost bought one in 2007, filled a form at a dealer and waited. But the dealer never called.

    I don't regret because I am very happy to end up with a 2010 model. But if the Silver Pine was still available, I would jump on it.

    I too would love to see a shade of green. Something unique to the Prius, and not like every other green car out there. It does seem to be a tad strange that you cannot buy a 'green' green car.

    Neon Blue. Actually glowing in the dark would be a plus...

    The silver pine mica was a nice color. I'd also like to see a pale silvery blue like that.

    • Magnetic Grey
    • Carbon Blue (available on Touring or "V" only)

    Again, it's probably more bronze than brown. It's an Infiniti colour.

    Orange. I like the flavor of orange that Nissan uses.

    Here's a picture of one from the internet. Might be photoshopped.

    I like the idea of a maroon or a more blue-green-gray like Tideland Pearl...my ALL TIME favorite color.
