    Hypersonic Red and Titanium Glow for me. The lighter colours seem to work well with the Prime's design. The blue is nice and it does change shade depending on lighting conditions (so does Hypersonic Red actually) but it's a bit too light for my tastes.

    Classic Silver is surprisingly sharp. It works well with the dark red taillights imo. It'll blend in nicely.

    Magnetic Grey gives it a more sinister look when viewed from the front. The thin quad LED headlamps and the dark grey and blacked out grille area work to give it a scowl that other colours can't.



    Blizzard Pearl is ok for the Prime's design. I think it works better if you add the 17" wheels from the Prius Liftback Touring models.

    Why didn't they have these colors on the 2016 Prius!? My favorites are the Blue Magnetism, Titanium Glow, and Hypersonic Red. Even the names are cooler! I like the blue, but I wouldn't buy it. I'd probably go for the Titanium or Black (you can't go wrong with black!). I tend to buy colors that don't attract the cops.;)

    BTW, why are there 2 greys, a silver, and 2 whites?:confused:

    How come we don't get any of the bright yellows or greens? I like Classic Silver. :)

    Wonder why there is no solid black?

    I voted for the Magnetic Gray to match the rabbit. Haha.

    I purchase Toasted Walnut to match my dog. That color is not on the list of choices for the Prime.

    I believe that's the special heat reflective paint, not available in the US.

    Toyota thinks Americans are color blind?
    Or maybe they are trying to steal those dogs from Subaru.

    They could have saved the money they lost on Scion by just giving us more color choices on the Toyotas.

    Color is a year-by-year decision. What comes when is carefully considered. You don't play all your cards at once...

    Hypersonic Red is available on the Prius. (Actually Titanium Glow too but in Japan only).

    There's only one grey. Titanium Glow is beige/white/cream

    For reference...

    From front to back: Blue Magnetism Metallic, Hypersonic Red, Classic Silver Metallic, Titanium Glow

    Ah, but there is!!! Just not here.
    I believe Lesotho is the only country in the world with the Prime being available in your coveted Toasted Walnut exterior color. This special color perfectly matches its snow covered hills in wintertime. Sadly, not available for export to the United States at this time due to the plug-in power differences.





    :D

    White and black are greys.:p Then they have colors like Titanium(which is a metal with silvery color(another grey)) Glow which could be mistaken for a grey. Which reminds me, beiges are just as blah as greys. These are safe colors, because neutral tones aren't likely elicit a strong response. Which is good to have for sales, but when you have 5 of these neutral blah colors and only 2 that stand out, it gives the impression the company thinks their own car is blah. Color is a part of styling and image. Want to revamp the Prius/Prime image, use a little more color than was used in the past. The Corolla and Camry have nearly double the color selection of them.

    The Rav4 Hybrid selection is the worse though. There are the 5 greys, a dark green that might look like a grey at times, and a bright blue.

    On second thought, I really don't like the Titanium Glow. I've never liked beige cars.

    All those votes, and I'm the only one that likes the magnetic grey (so far)? If dealers order colors across the board, I might actually find one in stock somewhere!

    Why is super white on there? It's not on the Toyota website.
