Just looking around i see that the most popular colors is the Blizzard Pearl with the Hot Lava in second. What other colors that they dont have would look good on the iQ to you. Mine would be red

Hi,

I have a color that is not on the list, Grayish Blue Metallic, I like the fact I may have a color not on the list...




As you can see it really is a Pacific Blue Metallic, with a little Grayish Blue Metallic. ;)

I saw one that color at Longo Scion in El Monte last night. It is very difficult to identify the color in person. Nice color though.

Agreed. I dunno how well the brochures and the web pages are color synched to the actual color, but my first impressions of the "hot lava" on the iQ was "should come with a red rubber nose and a big rainbow Afro wig for the driver."

I've since reconsidered, having seen one thugged up a bit with black tint, tires, and some vinyl. I suppose anything's possible.

I bought the black sand pearl because any vinyl color on top of it will pop like neon candy (will be easy to overdo it when I get around to vinyl). White and silver metallic both tint/fade out other nearby added colors. And none of the other available colors are neutral: you'd be stuck with one color scheme for life.

I had to have the Black Currant Metallic. It looks nothing like the color chip in the brochure. It is purple but it looks more like plum to me. It seems to have some reddish tones in it. In Japan (and maybe Europe) they have a purple called Amethyst Metallic. It looks a lot darker and more to the blue end of purple.

I thought I wanted the white but once I saw that the pearl effect on it was not that strong, I decided against it. Only one dealer in the entire state had the Black Currant and I decided to check it out. It was love at first sight.

This is my first car that you can really call a color in many years. The last 12 new cars have been black, gray or silver so those colors were all ruled out from the start.

I am wondering if they will do the same thing they did with the xA and the tC the first year. The Release Series cars were red. I think the iQ would look great in a true red.
