Hi everyone,

I plan to buy an S60 2.4T later this year and I have a question regarding colors.

Is Mistral Green Metallic the European name for Platinum Green? I have only seen pictures of Platinum green, but it seems it's called Mistral Green Metallic in Europe as Platinum green is not available here. Can anyone confirm that this is the same color?

Mistral Green Metallic is the same as Platinum Green Metallic. Unfortunately, Volvo Cars of North America bastardizes the original names for marketing reasons. The average American does not know what "Mistral" is whereas "Platinum" is a very well known word.

Same goes for the "Tropic Green Metallic" #412 (a.k.a here as Blue Green Metallic), "Marine Blue Metallic" (a.k.a. here as Nautic/Pacific Blue Metallic), "Scarab Green Metallic" (a.k.a. Cypress Green Metallic), etc., etc., etc.
