It still floors me that Subaru, a company known for being rugged and outdoorsy, would allow anything lighter than tan for their interiors. I know lighter helps make the inside look more spacious, but come on! It just looks tacky to me.

The 2012 Impreza loaner I had only stayed clean for about 1 day. Then my buddy just lightly touched the seat and door handle and it was over. Before that moment I thought, "Maybe I could live with an ivory interior?" Then reality rushed in. No ivory for Chano.
It is not just Subaru. About two years ago when my wife and I picked up an Acura MDX for her, we were also denied the option of a black interior with a white exterior.

I really hope it is not some new automotive industry trend that we will be seeing more of.
