2012 Toyota Prius C: What Color Is This Car?

May 31, 2012


I find that men and women see blues and greens differently. When a color falls between blue and green on the color wheel, most men will call it green, while most women will call it blue. This is my personal observation.

The original Crayola 64-box had a blue-green and a green-blue. They were two very different colors.

I've heard some of the guys describe our Prius C as sea green. On the Toyota website this color looks very green. But in person I think it is blue. In close-up, you can see the blue paint has a green shimmer to it. It's more like a nail polish than a car color.

Toyota calls this Summer Rain Metallic. How would you describe it?
