When the sun hits your car, the green really pops. When it's cloudy or dark, the car looks almost black. You can also see why some might think there's some blue hints in there, too. Though my suspicion is that it's partially the sky reflection. I was looking for the crimson model when we were in the market at the end of last year, but there weren't any - or any on order. Plenty of black, silver, and white. And of course, this green one. As some have mentioned, too, it's not easy to keep looking good, but I have the time to take care of it - generally it needs to be washed a few times a week to keep it from looking dusty. The recent rains have helped keep things clean though!
