I went to look at them yesterday and did a brief test drive. Compared to my 2013 Limited, it seemed roomier. Moving the infotainment display up to it's new position is much better than before (where a lot of cars have theirs). If you grab a brochure, check out the colors available. They show some 2-tone paint jobs that don't seem to be available right now. They show as an extra cost option: Midnight Black Metallic with Ice Edge Roof (silver), a Blue Flame with Ice Edge Roof and Lunar Rock with Ice Edge Roof. No idea when these colors will be on the dealer's lots.

Over here the available colors depend on the desired trim level. The XSE HV has two-tone over here, but only the base colors: pearl white, silver sky, ash grey and midnight blue (all metallic) with a black metallic roof and several details (fender trims, bumpers etc). Ice roof is unavailable here; colors are named different.
The XLE and lower trims only come in unicolor, including black, lava red and that aweful blue.

So many variations in so many countries; i wonder why they are making their (and our eventually) lives so complex...

In the US, only the Adventure and XSE trims have two tone colors. The Adventure has the Ice Edge roof and the XSE has the Black roof, as far as I know.

Ice edge roof is white, the only two-tone options are on the Adventure and XSE HV as previously mentioned, '19 gas model ebrochures are available only, no need to "pick one up".

To all interested: while test driving the FWD Hybrid yesterday i noticed the flippers on the steering wheel. It's a 5-speed shifter, used in mountain area's etc. Works OK, but i'm pretty sure i won't need it too much.

Nice acceleration video in a (EU) XSE Hybrid FWD; listen to the engine noise and see how fast the car actually is!

Beeping sound is the LDA beep. He was crossing the lane line ...
The red dash appears when you engage the sport mode.

I really can't wait to test drive the HV! With added power and instant torque from the rear wheels I'm sure it'll feel like it launches off the line.
