Blueprint or Blizzard Pearl

Iím trying to decide between a limited Blueprint or Blizzard Pearl with nutmeg interior. Curious if anyone has pics of either color and what thoughts are on the color after owning it.

Forget pictures. You should see them in person and decide. I think they both look sharp.

I love my Blueprint RAV. If it helps you, I’ve learned it is very dark (looks nearly black) in anything but bright light. In the sunlight the metallic blue really pops.

I'm having the same issue between White or Silver. Darker color = more maintenance !

Silver is literally the LOWEST maintenance colour possible, so if that’s your prime concern, go with that.

On the flip side, imo it’s the least rewarding colour to wash. Nobody notices after you spend 4 hours washing and waxing it 😞

Iíve seen them both in person but still going back and forth. I plan on tinting the windows and canít really envision what that would look like on the blueprint.

Although mine is still okay there are quite a few Blizzard Pearl RAVs here that had the paint peel off in large sections. I don't know if Toyota ever figured out and corrected the problem.

I did see comments from people on Facebook about this problem. Some even attached pictures. All the issues seemed to be on the white/blizzard pearl color. In the pictures I saw the peeling paint was on the roof.

In that case I feel your pain. If it makes you feel better, I think you'll be happy with either one. The Blizzard Pearl will be less common on the road since it's only offered on the Limited models. Plus the tinted windows will really contrast with the Blizzard Pearl.

(But I love my Blueprint!)
