The question is why they want to build any with those colors

We also wanted a dark leather interior and got the silver like we wanted - easier to clean with a fawn pug and baby on the way.

Something terrible happened to style back in the eighties that dictated the only acceptable colors for automobiles were black, white, red, or some shade of silver. I like the fact that Subaru experiments with colors, knowing full-well that they will not sell as many, and that the usual "sheep" will still cling to the standard safe ones.

Actually, I've seen a lot of shades of brown in the automotive industry lately ... just not on the road around here yet.

Well I LOVE LOVE LOVE my bronze 2-tone, and brown, as a rule, is my absolute least favorite color, usually.But I find this particular brown to be very appealing, and more importantly.....DIFFERENT!!

wow, "sheep" and "cling"? I think some people take themselves a little too seriously.
I do think the bronze 2-tone is a sharp look.

Sorry, but I'm not a big fan of the brown/bronze color as well. But if you like it, that's all that matters.

I don't like the green as well.

The last gen OB/Legacy had a nice bronze color which they should of kept IMO. The new color is too brownish for me, almost reminds me of caramel.

I bought the green. Would rather have had a choice of the old jaguar/mg racing green though.

I like the brown, green and red. Too bad they all have white interiors.

You forgot blue. At least in the DC area, dark blue is the color of choice - especially, for some reason, with BMW.

With a name like Caramel Bronze Pearl, I should hope so.

Default Add me to the Bronze Fan List

Just picked up my Bronze Outback last week. I didn't really like the color until I saw it in person during the test drive. It really is a sweet color for someone who likes colors that don't show up on the highways often. I think a lot of people dislike it because its difficult for a picture to show just how nice Caramel Bronze Perl actually is.
