I actually think red is the best color for the Civic, especially the Sport hatch. I just can't bring myself to buy a red car I guess.

'98 Civic Hatch MT
In 1984, I was a reluctant new owner of a Red CR-X. I wanted a blue one. I took the first one delivered and it was red. I honestly did not care for red.

After moving to Colorado in 1991, I immediately noticed a significantly higher percentage of trucks & SUVs compared to the D.C area. I quickly learned that Red is a great color for these larger vehicle to see me...defensive driving. I drove my Red CR-X and my current '98 Red Civic HB with my headlights on during the day. I was never hit by another vehicle. I am also a defensive driver, however, I am far from perfect.

I have stuck with red since 1984 only because I prefer other drivers to see me. Between snowstorms, monsoon rains, 2 lane mountain roads and occasional thick fog; I want to be seen.

For buying the '17 HB, I toyed with Cosmic Blue as a color choice. Then, the colors were announced. There is no Cosmic Blue for the HB.

Thanks to all of you for sharing your RR pictures. The pictures on this thread have convinced me to get a RR '17 HB Sport Touring. Next year, will I be able to find one in RR? ...More on this next year when the Sport Touring is available.

I like the Ralley Red alot as my last 2013 Civic Si was that color. If you compare let's say Lunar Silver notice how metallic colors show sharper more defined body lines. Red in the direct sun is so bight you lose the aggressive lines and you tend to look at the overall shape. Taffeta white does the same thing. That is why Honda is adding pearls and Metallics to most of their colors.

So which wheels are those on the red car? It has the dual exhaust but those don't look like the Sport wheels pictured elsewhere.

Normally I don't like red cars other than like on a Ferrari, so not sure why I like this one so much. It does look like Ferrari red.

Those are the 17's that you'll find on the sedan and coupe Touring. Although they look to be finished in gunmetal for that Euro hatch.
