Hello,

I'm looking to order XC60 MY22. Unfortunately, on MY22 bursting blue is no longer available. What would you choose between Silver Dawn or Fusion Red? Why?

Cheers!

I'm not a fan of silver. I reluctantly leased a silver xc90 and it never grew on me. I wanted to go with fusion red but my S.O. vetoed me. We'll likely go denim Blue. I also considered platinum grey but the S.O. really just likes the blue. Platinum grey looks like a nice option to me although I haven't seen it in person yet.

Do you want to stand out or blend in? I think the Fusion Red will get you noticed. The Silver Dawn is more of a color for blending in. They are both nice, but I'd take the Fusion Red between the two.

I used to have a Passion Red XC60, which was a great red. When I ordered my new one, I was sad that I couldn't get that red anymore, I really didn't like the Fusion Red so went with Bright Silver. Now I have a hard time finding my car in parking lots as it blends in with every other car in the lot.

Fusion Red for me too. I prefer bold colors.

I was hesitant to get fusion red myself, but it was the only color the dealer had with the options I wanted. I had only seen online photos, and wasn’t convinced.

I’m so glad now that I got it. It’s sophisticated and beautiful. It changes shades based on its surrounding conditions and ambient light. It seems like it’s the perfect shade at all hours of the day - it’s almost like it changes attitudes and gives off an air where it just fits in everywhere it goes.

Edit to add: I’m not usually a fan of most red cars.

I would also vote for Fusion Red. Red cars can be polarizing-some people love them, others hate red on cars in general. Silver, while a safe color, is just that. It doesn’t stand out and I doubt it is really hated by most people- but it is kind of boring in my opinion.

I love red cars, but when I was looking, in 2018/19, the red Volvo offered, wasnt a red....more of an orangish red to me-....the colour grew on me, but didn't crack my top 3 of choices. Good luck with ur decision

I love the orangish red, like the golden red dawning and sunset color, the best in life.

I currently have a Crystal White Metallic XC60 and honestly, I would go for a Fusion Red XC60 in a heartbeat. Albeit, the Silver Dawn looks really good on it, it just doesn't make the car pop out. Plus, it kinda makes it blend in with the Audi's and Mercedes's versus the Fusion Red, it almost reminds me of Fiorano Red from Ferrari.... if I spelled it correctly that is!

We have a bright silver and a fusion red. As mentioned bright silver blends in with other vehicles. It can be hard to look at directly in bright sunlight. Washing the car makes you blink.

Compliments come with the silver but people are very passionate about the fusion red. If they like it they’ll tell you…often. The red does change colors between a deep red wine color to an almost burnt orange depending on the lighting.

If in person review is possible, I would recommend. You’ll know instantly if it’s for you.

Size matters. A red XC90 would be a lot but a XC60 should be good.

I chose red because of some other cars I’ve owned before that were red on tan. Fond memories.

I vote red. Like some one else said I had an older Volvo in passion red and would have preferred that shade, but now that we have had this shade it has really grown on me a lot!

And yes it does change some as the sun light changes but I kind of like that.

Lastly silver is just boring!

I have never understood people who seek the opinion of others on car forums about car paint
Do you also ask about a girl who is better, black-haired, blonde, brown-haired, wich colors her eyes and the like ....

Buy what you like and not what others like
