I like the Blue Candy, I have a Grabber Blue Mustang GT as a fun car so you can see where I come from, my wife liked the Ice Storm at first, but once see saw the Ruby Red her mind was changed quickly. SInce the car is for her she picks the colors. The Ice Storm is a little too pale for me it is a pale green not a pale blue as in the brochures and the Ford website. We both agreed on the Stone leather interior. Makes the car look/feel bigger than the black.

RMS13 my husband wanted me to order Ruby Red, but I was set on Ice Storm. I hope that I actually like it when it arrives. I don't mind pale green as I have a pretty vivid green Smart Car named Pickle.

If you like silver, but want a color, the Ice Storm Metallic looks perfect.

Exactly what I thought so that's what i got.

I prefer light colors as they don't show the dirt as easy. So it was either white, silver or this. The dealer just happened to have this color with the few options I wanted so I pulled the trigger.

Wow! I really like it. I think that is the best colour that I have seen. Can't tell but is the interior black or stone? Congratulations.

Very nice combo. Give us your review of how things go as you drive it for a few days. I guess being in Michigan is a big plus for getting your hands on one quickly. I am hoping my comes through by the end of the month as I ordered Oct.5.

Ours is Platinum white and we like it alot! I think maybe a 50% tint on the windows will make it perfect!

My last few cars have been silver or silver-gray, but I wanted more color this time. So Candy Blue is my choice. Even though I'm in the South, I mostly have covered parking, so the car rarely bakes in the sun, or I'd be looking at silver again.

I have the ruby red with stone interior. Obviously, this is my favorite combo. The red is a mature red, not a hot rod red.

I saw a Ruby Red in person for the first time and it was GORGEOUS. It's a very rich red, looks very elegant. It would definitely be my #1 choice now.

Oh come on, you guys are so conservative and plain. ;)
If we had wanted one of the "boring" colors we could have had the car from dealer stock. They only ordered the conservative colors. :)

We ordered ours in Blue Candy. The demo units we saw at the drive event had a couple Blue Candy and it was a really nice color.

We actually would have preferred some of the other colors which the Fiesta, Focus and Escape come with but the C-Max wasn't offered with them. Tangerine Scream Metallic on the Focus is really nice. Deep impact blue on the Escape. We also like Lime Squeeze and Yellow Blaze on the Fiesta.

My truck is silver because I don't need to clean it as much and it's really just for camping and hauling. But our car we want to be more fun.

Green is my fav color and I would have loved a lime green. I would have had frogs painted on it! Well, maybe not. I've storm was as close to green as I could get.

Both my wife and I bought cars. We both bought the Sterling Grey. I thought a couple of time while waiting for it about switching to the Ruby Red but never made the call.

Sterling Gray here.

My wife saw the "Ice Storm" and indicated that I might lose my "Man Card" if I got that one.
I liked Red, which was my second choice. (also more $$)
White looks good, but is a bit plain, costs more $$, and also shows the dirt (been there and done that!)
Black is impossible to keep clean and shows every ding. Always seems to look better on a larger car (Think "Lincoln"). Not a good choice for Texas summers.

I got the stone interior. Black is waaaayyy to hot here in Texas. Also shows the dirt.

...... That's was my line of thinking. Obviously, YMMV. Everyone gets to make a choice. The world would be awfully boring if we all had the same color!

We wanted the Candy Blue but stayed with Silver due to the 110 degree summers here.
