Will Havana Red be available as a "normal" color? It was stated as being on the Dynamic Special Edition... do we have confirmation that Havana Red will be available as a normal color or only on the Dynamic Edition? And, just saying, the Green is the Design Edition.These are the 8 announced US colors: Victoria Black, Casablanca White, Himalayan Grey, Santiago Silver, Adriatic Blue, Mallorca Blue, Havana Red, and Siberian Ice, plus the sprcial edition Forest Green,
I actually LOVE the way the black looks on the sport trim with the dark 5-spokes.... but if I had to choose ONE color that I would want, it would be Siberian Ice. Black is a very, very, very close second and I would probably take it if the wait for Siberian Ice is too long...with 24 votes in so far it is interesting to see no interest in black. i find that black is a relatively common colour, especially on the ~luxury brands. perhaps Genesis has just stepped up to the palette for other more interesting colours, moreso than most other makes?
also, around here at least, white would be very popular followed by grey/silver. i'd say the most common MB/BMW/Audi i see are: white, silver/grey, black - in that order. any other more interesting pigmented colours are far behind. based on this poll, it is the other way around for the G70. (not sure what Siberian Ice is though...)
It would behoove them to offer a few of the more popular colors on the higher trim levels only. That way people considering making that couple thousand dollar jump to the next trim level will be pushed over the edge by that color that they just love and signifies a higher trim level.Excellent point about the color options, because, as my admittedly obsessive post illustrates, offering every color with every trim would be overwhelming.
The number of trim levels, factoring in both the 2.0T and the 3.3T plus the RWD Manual 2.0T Sport, plus the AWD v. RWD options puts the available trims at 19 (2.0T: 5 + 5 + 1) + (3.3T: 4 + 4) multiplied by whichever colors are available for each configuration. So, if they made every trim option in all 8 colors that would hypothetically be 152 options (19 x 8).
Then there’s the 2 special editions each available in AWD and RWD, which adds 4 more.
On the other hand, configuring a Kia Stinger seems pretty simple. There’s only 3, 4 or 5 colors available plus the AWD and RWD options.
^ i have been torn as well. my preference has always been for a more subtle/darker blue - including my current vehicle. i have yet to see a G70 Sport in the darker blue, and/or in daylight. i have seen plenty of the brighter blue in Sport trim so i'm clear on that. and i do like it. it is certainly a 'louder' colour, but it helps to show off the lines of the sheet-metal which i suspect the darker blue will conceal. i wonder if that brighter blue will age well, or if it is a fad colour popular at the moment. there are multiple brands with a similar recent bright blue colour which is not a traditional choice.I am torn between both blues. Although I have not seen any good shots of the Adriatic blue. Any owners have either, would appreciate some pics.
The Siberian Ice is only available on the 3.3T Sport in Canada.It would behoove them to offer a few of the more popular colors on the higher trim levels only. That way people considering making that couple thousand dollar jump to the next trim level will be pushed over the edge by that color that they just love and signifies a higher trim level.
