The blue and brown certainly look metallic and the grey looks like it is possibly matte. Are there any of us that have seen all of these colors in person...? You never know about the black as some companies are using a faint metallic in the black to get the upcharge. You are probably only going to get the 453 in white or possibly black if you want solid color.


The orange with black tridion looks like it should have the entire rear of the car painted black with a couple of big matching orange stripes with black stripes on the orange front. That could jump out from the crowd.

I had speculated that the blue might be non-metallic. It would be unprecedented if smart were to offer nothing but black and white non-metallic alternatives. My choice, in that case, would necessarily be white. I think that if the gray color were a matte finish, then it would have been noted/named as such, as was the second white version. I'm disappointed that the stunning yellow color used for the 451 ED won't be offered... that would easily be my top pick.

The yellow/gold color looks great with the black grille and the black surround of the headlights. A lot of car companies are offering only one vivid color in their lineups (too bad) and I guess the orange is it for the '16 smart here in the US. The brown is an intriguing color and would be better in a solid but the pictures make it look metallic.


Wallace...the blue looks to be a tad brighter than the '08 blue with a little more silver in it a little less green in it. Tough to tell.


Colors are fun...too bad we don't have more fun choices for '16.
