Poll time - Would you have paid to have a different colour?

Post by Boomer » Thu Mar 15, 2018 5:08 pm

Question prompted by a discussion with dealer on launch night about Volvo not having a wider range or even bespoke colours. Apparently you CAN have any colour (tongue in cheek) but it has it be one of the ones Volvo selects and which are then common across all ranges. It's all part of brand recognition [I'd argue that there are probably things I'd list well before colour as a car being a Volvo].

Anyway if you'd had the chance would you have liked another colour?

I'd have looked to something like a metallic burnt orange with the black roof.

No. Would have been happy with several.

Anyone know what all the available colours and their associated colour codes are across the current entire range?

of the XC40 "range"?

If so then page 13 of the pricelist (Ed 5)

...sorry Boomer - of the entire Volvo range. Pretty sure in the UK there's no "burnt orange" on any model but would love to know if I'm wrong as I 100% agree with you - that would look awesome in an R-Design with the black roof...

Ive ordered an R Design in Osmium Grey.I would have been tempted with an R Design in Amazon Blue if it had been available....not sure it would have suited a black roof though.

Wasn't the C70 Coupe available in a very distinctive orangey-gold hue back in the day?!?

I think it was called Saffron, the V70 R was available in the same colour.

Wow!! - I know less than a day later but I am surprised by the trend (8 yes/5 No). I was thinking as the poll as a bit of fun, and that it might be only 1 or 2 yes responses, but it does seems (at this point) that there is something here.
