Mazda5 colors- Golden Sand Metallic
I am looking at getting a mazda5, but I find their color options somewhat limiting. I live in Houston, TX so it is very hot so a light exterior and interior color is a must. If you want a light interior color, you have to get a white, red, or 'golden sand metallic' exterior. I've seen the white and red which are ok, but I really want a silver or tan ext with a light int...which led me to the 'golden sand metallic' . On the website it looks very cool, but I've heard it looks 'different' in real life. Some people like it, others really don't. I live in houston and there are only 2 listed available withing 50 miles of me (they are 40 miles away). Can anyone comment on this color? I can only find pictures on the mazda website of it...I guess it isn't that popular...

Now, for hot areas, also consider this, I really like it:

Oh well, best of luck!
The picture looks better than expected. I have a desert tan camry that is somewhat similar, without the greensih tint to it. I am interested in seeing it at a dealer...just not driving 40 miles to it...
Thanks for the photo!
Don't get me wrong, I didn't buy the car for the color (or cup holders for that matter); The Mazda5 had what I needed in a vehicle. 1. Cargo area that would easily handle items 6 feet long. 2. Good gas mileage. 3. Comfort for long trips. 4. Reasonable (relatively speaking) price. 5. A few "creature comforts" (power windows, fog lamps, sliding side doors, easy open hatch, etc.).
I also did my research and test drove odyssey, sienna, and a few others. Town & Country had the lowest price, but the consumer reviews told the agony of ownership. Too much of a gamble. The others were nice, but this "Golden Sand" Mazda5 spoke to us like no other vehicle. It looks more like a "New Leaf Green" to me. And we've had a LOT of compliments on the color.
I never knew a van could be such a fun car to drive!
