My wife wants black as she says that there is no flow of colour from the black dash to the light frost colour trim.
Must admit I did like the previous interior colour with the light coloured hood lining.
Any feed Back would be appreciated, might help settle our little domestic argument.
I have ordered a GC Limited with Beige interior and I swear by it. But then again you do need to see it in person to actually realize how good it looks. One thing i have noticed, the first choice of interior for car owners here is black. I do not understand whether it has something to do with the dealer or personal choice.
When I was on my car hunt mission, every dealer I went to had black interior in 95% their cars. Tried telling me about resale value blah blah. Well i personally, simply do not want a car purely for its resale value because the moment I have bought it, driven out of the show room its a secondhand car.
And guess what secondhand cars depreciate. But that is me I generally drive my cars to the ground except my current JGC MY13 Laredo because i am upgrading. It has beige seats, i will try and get some pictures across to you over the weekend.
Try looking for something in the dark in a black car with black interior, and it feels cramped. I find black interiors do not flow well.
I went to see the dealership in Sandgate road, they had a MY14 Overland with light interior, my wife fell in love with the interior. It flows perfectly throughout the whole car. It opens up the space in the car and its less heavy on the eye.
You notice the white and brown scuff marks much more on a black interior, on the door panel and the kick panels near the accelerator , it is lot less visible in a light interior.
My thoughts, take your wife to the dealership if you have not done already and show her the light interior compared to the black interior. It could be a game changer. Also have you tried say mixed interior, say black with beige. This way you both get what you want.
