I mean the point was when you are passing or being passed by minivans. Bright colors stand out in people's memory.

But that is still funny.

And my point remains that they need to actually see you first!
Besides red is supposedly one of the "unsafe" colours according to studies at any rate.

That is very strange. I think they might be including darker reds in that.

To be fair, the article states that red cars are only “red vehicles have a 7% higher crash risk than safer colored cars” so I don’t really think it’s a significant difference. Also, the more dangerous colors ranked on there are black, grey/silver, blue, red, and green. That pretty much covers most car colors excluding white so the data is kinda skewed.

You could just take the "better" list and carry it on down so it would go white, then, yellow, then orange and flip the "worse" list so green, red, etc carry on down.
None of the numbers are far apart really so all in all, beyond some statistical deep diving, there are really no "safer" or "more visible" colours.

As I showed in the picture above my bright orange car was almost invisible from the seat of a Ram truck right beside it. If I took that picture from the perspective of somebody around 5'6" or so you wouldn't even see that sliver of roof.

If you drive a low sports car of ANY colour always just assume that nobody can see you. Don't rely on a colour to catch attention or stick in other drivers mind.

Oh and to put another urban legend to sleep the most common colour of car to get pulled over is....



















WHITE

Not red, nor yellow or orange or any of the so called "attention getting" colours just plain old white.

Mid grey is interesting, a good middle ground between sportiness and elegance. This could be stunning in combination with a black roof

White is perhaps the closest choice to opaque, showing less reflections. But hard to take it clean. I don't know if it can be boring in the long run or it could give the feeling that something is missing

Blue, actually I don't like that tone of blue, conservative.
Am very likely to get white. I think if it has a ceramic coating, it should be easy to keep clean but will give it that "pop" to keep it from getting too boring.

That's the reason we drive fast and constantly change lanes. A moving target is harder to hit.

To be fair its a neat colour, but when in specific light it looks like a snot green.

I dont think anyone wanted to be seen driving in a booger car.

Plus "luxifying" the interior without changing any of the car's mechanical flaws seems to have completely gone against both its "pure sports car purity" or the "GT car" nature this version was intended to be (which also didnt match the Scion brand at all)

So... does anyone have any credible info on approximate $ range it's gonna be?
A local Subaru dealer has a 2018 tS with 20k miles for sale at USD 32k. Certified pre-owned, but still...
... unless the dealership is counting on uninformed people who don't know the new 2022 is coming?

Long way from knowing prices just yet.
What the dealer is asking for the 18 and what they will get are two totally different things.

There was one down the street from me for a while. The colour was fine but I found they overdid the interior a bit.
The biggest thing about that edition was it was marketed to a whole different demographic than the rest of the line up and sort of failed to meet the wants of either group.
