Beige interiors are a class act but only when it is done up in good quality leather and is mixed with black and silver in harmony. I am a big fan of Beige colour but am unable to accept beige interiors in our cars (under Rs 15L cars in India). They look very tacky and cheap.

Add to this, Beige interiors pose two very irritating problems - maintaining the interiors and windscreen reflection. Not just the plastic under the wind screen, even beige seat covers (regular Rs 5K type) in a Swift were giving reflection in the windscreen.

Beige does not work, during night drive, the interiors just becomes too visible in the Cabin Rear View Mirror. However, they do make the cabin feel a lot bigger and spacious, false feeling though.

My personal preference would be black.

I really like the implementation of beige interiors in the i20.The parts that are more likely to get dirty like dashboard, door handles, floor area near the doors [dunno what it's called] etc. have a dark choco-brown shade.This solves the problem of both maintenance and windscreen reflections while lookin pleasing to the eye too.

I am a fan of beige interior. Having said that it doesnt mean every car should possess beige interior. I have seen a 800 with a beige interior. The black interiors were painted beige and in some time all those aread turned themselves black who were in constant contact with hand especially steering, where the driver use to rest his hands .Some cars like innova, corolla, civic the beige interior makes much more sense when you see a dashboard in black and as you go down it gets beige which gives you "just the right kind of thing" feel. However if i have a cedia, M3, celica i would always prefer to have a sweet shiny black leather seats with black all over. So i have a very biased opinion when it comes to black or beige interiors.

For the given specs, my vote is for Beige. Cars > 20 L are invariably much too classier so they can carry off other colours / darker shades better.

+1 to that. New Beige I10 has the right mix of beige and dark colors, something similar to my Cedia Spirit.

Beige Interiors = Bigger sense of space.
Also, they look great with wooden interiors and complete the luxurious look.

The main thing behind beige is that it makes the interiors look so spacious. Its better than the traditional black interiors. It also adds a touch of luxury into the car.

Beige interiors makes the car look bright and spacious. It also gives a premium look to the Car. If you can manage to keep it clean, IMO it ages very well compared to black interiors - which look good when new, but age twice as fast, especially if they are made of cheap plastics.

One really important point with beige interiors is that it absorbs less heat than black. So your car will be marginally cooler if parked outside.

I just hate beige interiors. When used is moderation, its probably okay. Else, look at the way they have used it in i10 and Spark. Pathetic!

lighter colours give an impression of greater space. largely because one gets a feeling of open-ness when one sees light coloured interiors as compared to dark interiors which look gloomy and somehow cramped. thats why most Indian manufacturers seem to be opting for light coloured interiors across the various vehicles in various segments.
