I think the silver color but my daughter asks me red ... what is your choice among all the colors?

  • Clear White
  • Bright Silver
  • Signal Red
  • Caramel Yellow
  • Graphite
  • Deep Blue
  • Silverstone Beige
  • Chestnut Brown
  • Tanzanite Blue
  • Aurora Black Pearl

There is no way we can start a poll here ?

The red is actually a very nice colour. Most people on the forums will have black or white. There some graphite and some blue and the other colours are very rare.

I actually would have preferred "midnight sapphire" but as stated the blues are quite rare. There was one at the dealer when I bought my bright silver EX but it was a fully loaded SX and I wasn't looking to spent that much along with not wanting the stiffer suspension that comes with the SX. so my choices where black, white and silver. I don't like the way black shows dirt and I just hate white (sorry, I know it's like the most popular color here) so silver it was. No biggie for me though since I'm color blind I don't really care that much.

RED!!! It is not the usual red. It seems to have a small amount of gold flake, and it changes shade in different lights.

I chose the Signal Red, and I love it. The color is extremely bold and definitely brings people to look. Here's a picture I took to show the red:

I like the red colour aswell, it really shines in a nice way in full sunshine. However I don't like how the taillights blend in with the colour.
I had original settled for a black car with the beige interior, but got the chance to see all the colours at once (at a import parking lot), and totally fell in love with the caramel yellow. So im really looking forward to get my car :)

Food for thought, red also known as "arrest me red" is the most pulled over and cited auto color!

Might not be the best choice if it will be driven by a teen.

Myth. Not actually supported by facts.

As I await delivery of a red Rio5 and have a 16 year old daughter this is of interest! I don't think it hurts if she thinks she needs to watch her speed more with this colour :). I suspect the red car 'myth' came about as fast cars and fast drivers are perhaps more likely to be in red - there's a lot of red Mustangs, Corvettes, Ferrari's etc. that may indeed get ticketed due to speed and noticed at the side of the road.

You're buying your 16 year old daughter a brand new car? Such a nice parent.

Does she have her full license to be able to drive on her own?
I know here in BC you get your L and must drive with it for a year before you can Drive by yourself then another 2 years for your full license

No, not exactly. We are getting a 3rd car but will be for my wife, we will largely park the minivan except for trips but she will be able to use one of the cars when needed, certainly not daily. In Ontario they wait 6 months after G1 licence (accompanied) to take test for G2, they can then drive unaccompanied but some restrictions about who is in car with them especially at night. The Rio is to be a manual which she doesn't drive yet.
