  • I also purchase from the inside out, yet prefer the grey interior over the beige. I determine which exterior color I want, after I narrow down the list, based upon interior color availability.

    Definitely want a light interior this time, gray is fine. I first saw the glacier blue and thought it a nice alternative to the ever popular silver. Next I saw the silver and must say it looked classy. I just saw the burgundy red yesterday which looked very cute and sporty.

    Sometimes you can grow tired of a color though and it can make a car look dated. As I like all of these colors, which would be the most universally pleasing in the long haul?

    I like the idea of the ivory interior, but I'm worried that it will show dirt much more than the gray or black.

    Metallic beige shows the least dirt and has always been popular and you get the light beige interior which I had in 3 different Accords. Beige interior is still the most pleasant to me. Depends on the color of your dirt. :)

    I like the idea of the ivory interior, but I'm worried that it will show dirt much more than the gray or black.

    i've had all three interior colors. in fact, our current odyssey's interior is gray and our new CR-V's interior is beige. black may hide the dirt but it really shows the dust, which you really can't do much about except for frequent wiping, especially the top of the dash. beige is the opposite...it shows dirt the most but hides dust the best.

    i figure the tradeoff like this: i have to take more care to prevent getting the beige interior dirty but, in return, i get a bright and airy cabin. also, i replaced the beige carpet mats with the black all-season mats...the contrast looks great and now i don't worry about getting that part getting dirty.

    as for gray, it actually does quite well for hiding dirt and dust. however, i find it drab. with black and beige, when they're dirty, they look awful but when they're clean, they look absolutely fabulous. with gray, regardless of whether it is clean or dirty, it just looks kind of dull all the time. JMHO.
  • I may be design challenged, but why would Honda not offer Ivory Leather with the Royal Blue exterior. I would order one now if that had that option. Dark blue is my first choice for exterior color and Ivory for interior. I don't want black exterior with Ivory because black exterior is impossible to keep clean where I live. Black interior gets too hot. Grey interior is blahh... I have it now and I am sick of it. Does Honda typically provide more options in they second year of a model? Thx

    Your living inside the car. So buy it inside out. My .02.
  • I really, really wanted to like Green Tea, based on the brochure. When I finally saw it in person, I could only describe it as "asparagus pee." :P

    that is such a personal message. My husband was buying this CRV for me, after years of driving a really crappy dodge. I wanted red so bad and he was going to get it for me. Except when I saw the crv red, I hated it. It was the candy apple one I would have liked. I hated the blue. Too drab for me. White was out of the picture, having driven white for 9 years. And I HATED grey interiors having had that in the van as well. But it seemed like so many of them had the grey, even the too dark red was paired with grey.

    So I looked around the web page and the only one intriguing me was the green. Something different and HOT! So when we went to one of the several dealers and saw the green and test drove it, we had to have that color. Funny thig was I'd never have gotten beige interior, having kids and all, but it was too beautiful to pass up grey leather.

    Now that I have the green and all the pollen is coming off the trees in srping, I can tell that it wa s agood choice. Not so noticeable, all that pollen. Dirt is not as noticeable.

    Have fun deciding. No color is really a bad choice in a vehicle this outstanding!

    you are so right! I never thought about green...not in a million years, goign in wanting red as my dream car and seeing that green and just loving it!

    oops, I meant I would not pass up beige leather....challenged today....sorry
  • Color is always and will always be a personal matter
    THis is my 40th car and the first green one
    I like a color that doesn't look dirty like a dark blue or black and the last thing I wanted was a black interior
    So first choice was green and second was beige
    I should be getting the EX L in 3 weeks
  • congrats!

    I never ever thought I'd get green, wanting red so bad, but when I saw that green, it was hot! Hope you love it as much as I do...and yes, it hides dirt well! ;)
  • I bought my 2007 EX AWD (new, not used) last night and I got the black exterior with the ivory interior. I know I'll have to be extra careful with it, but I love the black exterior (very classy and the mirrors and door handles, while matte, match the car and make it harder to differentiate from the EX-L.
