MB must have a dozen greys and silvers. I think Toyota has 50 shades of beige
It's pretty bad that the return of brown was actually kind of exciting, as it was different.
Oh, saw a "sport" variant new Santa Fe. Not offensive, not sure what the point of the window in the C-pillar is for - too small and high for visibility, just to let in light I guess. Must be a monster for a small person to maneuver in a garage.

Buick had a nice brown with the Enclave, with Bronze mixed in for depth.

They should get a little more playful with the new A3.

They have one thing in common, both really noisy.

Not much of an issue with my 20mph average speed (26mph moving average).
Wonder how the C-Max noise levels compare?
I think C&D measures road noise for comparos, I'll do a quick search...

Looks like C&D hasn't compared them yet, I imagine that's coming.
Detroit Free Press (as pro-Domestic as they get) complained about noise on the C-Max also:
Both out of my target price range for now, low 30s for Ford and mid 30s for the V loaded up. I don't think Ford's moonroof is the panoramic kind, plus the fam hated the back seat (and they're right about that).
Too bad, I prefer the shorter overall length and is has a bigger gas tank for great range.
Ted Britt Ford is advertising $4000 off, so a loaded $32k one would be $28k. Definitely better priced.

No sure how it is in the states but here in Canada all of the current Santa Fes are called Sport. When the longer wheelbase 7 seater comes out it will be called just a Santa Fe. The Sport badge is meant to indicate it's a shorty 5 seater.
They're actually very nice cars, and fully loaded they top out at $40k, about $3k more than a loaded Tucson here. I think it's well worth the extra 3 grand over a Tucson but if I were in the market for a SUV I'd have a hard time justifying $40k for a Hyundai SUV even though it's absolutely loaded.

They up-sized it, seems more like a Ford Edge competitor now, vs. the old one competing with the Ford Escape.
