I own an i10 kappa, Deep ocean Blue in color. I get to seen very few i10's with this color but one thing i can vouch for..." you need to maintain it regularly " . You can view my car in my garage.

As you can see the scale is tilting towards Electric Red ( which is an awesome color).

If you dont like dark colors, settle for white and get yourself some black/silver finish alloys and you make people drop their jaws

Completely agree - my wife wanted a particular color which my daughter seconded - and thats what I got. BTW I only get to talk about which car, colour trim and interiors I let the family decided.

Ahh.. most are cheering for the Red! I'm in spits trying to decide between Alpine Blue and Blushing Red. Blushing Red is more common, but cheerful and may i say a 'youthful' colour. I think it will look fresh even couple of years from now. Under bright sunlight Blushing Red looks great! I like Alpine Blue, but it doesn't look like it has energy, and may even look drab few years down the line.

White for me anyday, though its personal even its new greyish colour looks cool in it, if you like red looks stunning but not my choice.

White is nice, but I like the dark blue as well. Just a matter of personal taste.

Red it is, looks "electric" in that color. Though like the white and champagne color too in the i10!

We went to the yard today to take a look at the i10s. All cars were dusty like how cars are in a typical yard. All the dark coloured cars looked dirtier compared to these colours -->White, Alpine Blue, Silver, Champagne Gold and Virtual Yellow. Both Electric Red and Blushing Red looked drab with a layer of dust on it. When cars are dusty and dirty i like Alpine Blue colour, it shines through even with a layer of dirt settled on it's surface.

Hi Sankar,

I have an i10 in Alpine Blue.It is one of the best darker clolurs in i10 even when layer of dust is settled over it.Infact,when properly waxed and cleaned,it looks shiny and good.

Thank you guys! Will sure create an ownership thread once it reach home.

Karan, the tentative delivery date is April 14th. The dealer doesn't have i10 Sportz in Alpine Blue colour right now except an already invoiced car.
