We've been seeing the great pics of the inscription interiors for over a year now. Any word on when they'll be available and on which models? I, of course, would be very interested in the blue/black leather one if it could be mated to a nice blue exterior.

You will see a version of one of them in the MY07 XC90s.

The U.S. market is not sophisticated enough for such interiors, anyway.

YOU are different. You are in the minority.

Re: Inscription interiors....when? (GrecianVolvo)

It really speaks to the larger issue of the color palette Volvo deems us fit to use. As much as I enjoy the lineup, the availability of color, both inside and out of the car, is incredibly bland. Just as an exercise, I checked out Volvo's online store thing to see just how many stops between white and black they give us.

Exteriors
S40: 5 stops between white and black
V50: 5 stops between white and black
S60: 5.5 stops between white and black
V70: 4 stops between white and black
XC70: 3.5 stops between white and black
R: 3.5 stops between white and black
S80: 5.5 stops between white and black
XC90: 4.5 stops between white and black
C70: 4 stops between white and black
Note: the 0.5's come from Lava Sand and Magic Blue. Mostly gray or black.

Interiors
All Models (except R): Light, Dark.

If you strip all of these away and you look at the actual colors Volvo offers here in the states, you get three, maybe four. And most of those are either blue or red. And unless you have an R, you don't get to have interior color.

It's good to be in the minority in this situation.

What do you mean by stops? How do you get 1/2 of a stop? whatever a stop is. Do you mean other choices not related to black or white?

Definitely good to be in the minority, I just wish the black/tan version of your interior (I always forget what it's called) was around when my turn at the S60 came along.

And by "stop" I just meant the gradations from white to black (and all the grays and silvers and titaniums in between). And like I said, the halfs denoted either lava sand (mostly gray) and magic blue (mostly black).

Re: Inscription interiors....when? (T5_awd)

Was the black/tan split interior called graphite and sisal (kind of a maize color)?

That's the one. Maize is a better word than tan. Funny that we're talking about this and now it looks like the newly refreshened S60 has at least one two-toned interior. Finally. http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif

colour - Kidney Bean?

Call it what you want. It looks amazing IRL!! I will choose that color for my new V8 executive. The seats are nicer if you choose Executive instead. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Dyer and Dyer Volvo in Atlanta had one on the lot with that color. Kinda like a football. Regardless - it was pretty.

Alredy? No?
