So what’s your favorite color? We’re personally fond of them all, as each provides an elegant option. One thing to consider is that three of the options are metallic tones (with aluminum specks) and four are pearl paint finishes (with mica). The main difference is that metallic tones have metallic specs that shine from every angle, but have no influence on the color’s appearance, while mica flecks give an appearance of a slightly different tone when you shift your perspective. This is because mica mimics the appearance of natural pearl, which will appear brighter where the light hits, but darker where it doesn’t.

It’s difficult to see the difference between metallic and pearl in the color images, but typically you see metallic paints on vehicles that are meant to look sportier, while pearl paint is simply meant to look high-end and luxurious.
