Is it a color from Honda? I don't think so. It more likely a custom color.
If you ask my opinion, I agree pink is odd but not bad. In fact it looks good under the sun, lights.

Regardless of whether its a custom paint or a honda color, its about the shade & how much it appeals.

A good color for any car-White.
Color i like-Black, brush green, maroon-red mix.
Sad color-Depends on the car. Pink estillo,pink activa, Lemon yellow ect.

Thank God you told me that Honda had not done it!

Anyways, looks like black - ish and silver - ish are definitely favorite of most of the people, unless you have a car model that has one best looking color for itself. Hence you will most likely not have any adverse comments on the car for silver and black palette. So, if you are a new buyer and don't want to take a chance with color, i guess these are the ones. They have an option within themselves again i guess,

If you want less or no maintenance go for sliver - ish shade
If you can afford to spend time cleaning your car twice/once a day, go for black - ish...

Hope he's not using it himself. Else one would think he's re-discovered himself after all this time !

And the number of the car is funny too, if you know what I mean (the initial part)

My favourite color is Silver

I've been noticing the new Swifts (after the recent style upgrade to the rear lights) in the bright Orange color- "Sunlight copper" I think it's called. It looks simply awesome. The Metallic shine really suits the Swift.

But the older swifts in a similar Orange color looks drab. It doesn't have the same metallic tone. Is it just a case of the color losing it's shine or are the new ones a whole different color?

Thats because they are actually two different colours.

The previous gen cars were offered with 'garnet orange'.

The new colour that you see is called sunlight copper. I think it was made available just after the SX4 was launched.

And I agree, it does suit the swift.

Like: Silver & Black; would do on almost every car
Dislike: Pink on Estilo; give me a break

Palios opened a whole new range of colors amongst indian cars. It looked great in orange, red, yellow and green; very European look.

Cedia looks awesome in Yellow or red, sure head turner.

Audis in blue also look great.

Most cars look good in Silver and Black.
Yellow Zen
Black, Silver, Copper Swift
Silver and Black Santro
Deep Blue i10
Silver and Pearl Silver Alto
Silver on most sedans
Black on SX4
Black on Honda Accord
Black, Silver, Maroon on Civic


Hates:
Yellow Alto
Yellow WagonR
Orange Fiesta
Orange Palio
Blue Indica

One of my personal opinion: Old Zen and Swift do not look bad in any color.

IMO, the pink/lavender colors on Estilo is directed towards woman folks as they generally like those colors.
