I really like the dark blue but it only offers the charcoal interior and a black floor which is asking to be filthy. The dark blue looks good because you cannotsee the plastic bottoms. So I am going to get the silver because it looks classy and rich. I would also consiter the white exterior

Silver is the best color if you plan to keep it for the long haul, as it always looks new and looks fairly clean except under the nastiest conditions.

My two cents.
The tea green is a one year color probably and will not be as popular over time. (According to the dealer)
I too hate black or gray interior so I got the Borregio Beige I think it is called which looks nothing like the color in the crv brochure. It is my third car that color not in a row and I always like it because it never looks dirty, the interior is a light cool in hot temperature color. I would call in a light metallic tan color which has the very slightest hint of green in some light. That may just be an illusion on my part.
Had lots of white cars and always like them but maybe only gray interior. Had a few black but thought crv did not look very good in black.
It is such a personal decision but you will enjoy whatever you choose.

Unless you want gray or black upholstery, Honda doesn't give one much choice. The exterior color didn't matter much to me, except for the green--no way. But since I didn't want black leather seats and the gray leather looked, well, lifeless, I ended up with the beige.
In any color, the CR-V is a winner. No buyer's remorse here.

Green seems to be something people really get riled up about. You either love it, or hate it. The current CRV green looks sick on the website, but in person I liked it. And I am soooo done with black leather and carpets! Impossible to keep it looking clean without employing a chauffeur.
Green is something all manufacturers provide year in, and year out, with differing success. Colors are dictates of a style board (yes, its true) chosen a year or two in advance, and the paint manufacturers and decorators choose between the new offerings, and that is what we see.
Henry Ford seems to have the final say about interior colors...you can have any color you want, so long as it is black!

I loved the green in person, but I think it will date the car sooner than necessary. So I went with silver. I figure I'm not going to be looking at it anyway.

I purchased a Green Tea Metallic EX-L 4WD with the Ivory leather interior. I am not too concerned with this color becoming dated as I plan on keeping the "V" for 10 years and at that point as a used vehicle the color won't be such an issue....the condition of the vehicle will.

I also chose green tea metallic and I love it. It doesn't show the dust as much as a dark red or blue, and is more exciting than a gold or silver. I have a jacket in the same shade of green and get a lot of jokes of mathing the car to my wardrobe.
