To make your "poll" truly comprehensive/fair/balanced you MUST add a last category: "Yuck". FWIW, "Meh" is NOT a counterbalancing option to "Awesome"!!

I don't care for red enough to say anything but meh. Red is not my color and probably never will be on any car I chose to own. Earth tone colors, blue or orange for me. Even purple would probably be good on this car but red is too splashy.

I, on the other hand, love the red! :)

I disagree with calling it a "special addition," though. I wish the color-matched interior accents were standard on all models, it's a nice, classy touch.

Haha, very true. I'm not sure if I can edit an existing poll, but I'll try.

I think the red is okay. Perhaps the only reason I would consider it is because it's rare, but that's a double-edged sword. I am curious if body-colored aftermarket parts would be more costly, if not outright unobtainable!

That said, I'm not in the "Meh" category, but I also don't think it's "Awesome." And I don't really get the "False Advertising!" choice. More poll choices? I think you can list 10. ;)

I was saying false advertising because Pure Red was a WRX color first, so this is the first Pure Red in non-turbo. :) I don't see a way to re-do the poll unfortunately, once it's up. Now I know for next time to do more options.

Oh... got it. No worries. I appreciate you taking the time to get a consensus! I checked out your company Facebook page. Very cool! I especially liked the Subaru videos.

My pleasure. I'm always curious with these one-off colors, figured I'd ask some dedicated Crosstrek owners.

Not interested in purchasing one, but I do love the color.


It reminds me of the GM paint color Victory Red (on the Chevy Silverado) also known as Chili Red (on the old Chevy Cobalts)

OK, I understand; then just keep in mind that at least a number of the current poll's "Meh" responses are really "YUCKS"-in-disguise!!

FYI: see what happens when they actually let economists (who reflexively have allergic reactions to "instant" polls) read and respond to threads on this site!! LOL

Would have bought if it had been available on the 2015. I've been accused of buying too many red vehicles by my daughter so I bought a blue one this time. That's about the same color as my second 4x4 I bought when I was 18.
