Juiced Up About Orange Cars

Hot Lava

The 2013 Scion iQ may be the world’s smallest 4-seater, but in this fiery color called Hot Lava, it’s hard to miss.

Canyon Copper

Hyundai made sure its newly redesigned 2013 Santa Fe crossover would not be missed, with a deep and warm color called Canyon Copper.

Solar Orange

There’s been a lot of buzz around the release of this new electric BMW i3 Coupe. And what says electric better than Solar Orange, created just for this new Bimmer? It’s a concept car for now, but should be available late next year.


A red-headed Italian? Que bella! This 2013 Fiat 500e demands attention in flame-orange Rame, which is the Italian word for auburn.

Madagascar Orange

Could you imagine James Bond driving an orange car? If it’s this 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish in Madagascar Orange, absolutely.

    Great, I love to read the articles in VroomGirls, There is no better person to give descriptions than a woman. I’d like to see a man put as much feeling into Madagascar Orange. Wonderful job Kim, loved it.

    I’m LOVING all of the wild new colors that were on display in LA. I think I read in the last DuPont report that like 82% of all cars are white, black or grey (beige might’ve been in there too). Where’s the passion? These colors remind me more of the muscle car era. Sure, those cars might not have been very good for the environment, but they were FUN! I love seeing some of that fun coming back into the industry.

    @Taylor, I couldn’t agree more! I hate to hear people say they got gray or white because it increases the resale value. Whatever! You’re going to live with this thing and see it every day. It should be a color you love. I like all the bright yellows that are coming out as well, and the cool light blues and greens. Makes for a much more interesting parking lot.
    P.S. I like muscle cars, too 🙂 I grew up in the South during the 80’s, how could I not!

    I read that Orange is a colour preference of men, however I can’t help wanting to buy the new Lexus NX in Solar Flare as it’s so less boring than all the other colours in the range with the exception of Azure Blue. However I feel my female friends will probably think I have lost my marbles. What do you ladies think?
