The color is called Karat Gold and it replaced Ginger Ale Metallic.

I saw one at a dealer in Alberta and another one at a shopping center in Washington State.

Gold isn't a color you see much on a car these days, I wonder if it will catch on? :shrug: I liked the Ginger Ale color they had, I guess I was one of few who did

I personally like the ginger ale color but I'll admit the Karat gold isn't that bad.

No, not bad at all. It was the color of my first car...
