Dark interior vs beige
 
Ive always wanted a beige interior but am worried that it will look dirty all the time. Anybody regret going with the lighter color?

Beige interior is like a black exterior. It looks great when its clean, but it's a pain to keep clean. I have beige in my Legacy and love the contrast with the Regal Blue Pearl. Plus it really pops on sunny days with the windows and sunroof open. But the carpet gets dirty easily and the leather can really show stains, discoloration and wear. It was fine for my wife and I as adults, but now with children not so much.

The nice thing about the Jeep's beige interior is that the carpet and steering wheel are still black. That was the deciding factor for me. We had a beige carpet and steering wheel in my wife's old Explorer and that was a nightmare. The only time the beige interior is an issue for me now is when I'm wearing jeans and the dye rubs off on the seats. But even then it just takes a quick wipe with some leather cleaner. I was previously a black interior only kind of guy, but this truck has definitely swayed me the other way.

I had beige leather in a '98 Blazer. It held up fine ... with adult only occupants.

I've NEVER regretted any of the beige interiors I've had on every vehicle I've owned for decades, except for my JGC Summit where it wasn't an option. (Saddle/black right now and I wish there was a lot less black since it shows the dirt significantly more than colors that are more the same as the "dirt". ;) )

Yeah Ive got 2 children under 6 so I was glad to hear from people with kids as well. I drove one with the light interior and never gave it a thought that the steering wheel and carpet were still black, but it really brightens up the inside of the vehicle. thanks for all the replies

Love the Beige. Almost a year and still looks clean even w/ a 2yr old and a dog in the family. I probably cleaned the interior 2-3 times so far... just wipe down w/ a cloth and vacuum. Nothing major...

I like the light frost beige because it makes the interior bright. Had black interior in my previous GC and while it was good, it gets too boring after a while. Wife's Cayenne interior is grey and we like it too.

Sit in each of the interior and see how you like it.

I had beige/ tan or whatever you want to call it in my last SUV, a Ford Expedition. Two teenage kids and a 20# dog that likes to dig. It required frequent general cleaning along with deep cleaning every few months but it held up very well. The leather/ pleather was easier to clean than the plastic.

It's an advantage that it shows the dirt but a disadvantage that it shows the dirt. It depends on your cleaning mind-set.

I have the beige interior and love it. I find the black interior just too dark. Saddle color is just odd to my eyes.

Always had a beige interior. No problems with it so far...had it a year and looks good as new, just normal maintenance, nothing special.

Problem with Jeep's "beige" interior is that to me it is closer to white than beige. Currently my car has black exterior and beige interior and was set by the same combo on my new Jeep ... until I saw it in person.

Just to light for my taste ... before you spent your money just see it in person. On the other hand with saddle gone your other option is Black which I think is even worse than white.

That's what I have and i agree with your comment. I have the dark charcoal exterior and thought the black would be too dark and monotonous so I went with light frost/dark frost. I must say that I initially like the rich look of the black interior but believe I would get tired of it over time. One thing for sure is I didn't like the orangeiness of the saddle. I've seen other saddles that I like just not the shade in the WK2.
