I'm going to order a Yeti soon. But I can't decide the color. Trying to decide between Lava blue/ Cappuccino/ Mato/ Platin. Got hold of a sample of Lava/ Petrol blue from the dealer. (The left is Storm blue and the right is Lava blue)

Not too keen on it TBH, the Storm blue is much nicer - but also very common (in the UK at least) as it is very similar to the race blue used on the vRS's.

That is rather useful thanks for that. I took an order for a Petrol Blue Yeti today and they haven't seen the colour so I shall forward a link to them!

I quite like it but still prefer the Mato/Gobi combination I went for!

It amazes me what people can do with photoshop,I have it on my PC about all I can do is rotate things and use the undo button.

I prefer the Storm Blue.
The styling of the Yeti looks best in brighter colours that are easier to spot in my opinion.

I've seen Silver and the dark non metallic blue ones about. They look OK parked up alone, but as they are background colours the car blends into traffic/car park.

Each to thier own though, I'm sure nearly everyone likes the colour they chose. :thumbup:
My ultimate favorites are red, white and storm blue.

I've had my Storm Blue Octavia for 5+ years now, and I've been disappointed by how dark it is. The good point is that the black rubbing strips and bumpers blend in well, but unless it is clean and in strong sunlight, it seems to just look like a flat navy blue. The Lava/Petrol blue would seem to be even darker, and so (in my opinion) look as if it would be much the same as Pacific Blue.

The VRs blue is much brighter, and more to my taste, but as you can't get Yeti's in bright metallic primary colours I'd rather have had Tangerine. (I like the Muscovado but my wife doesn't :S ) I'm hoping the Bronze will not be too dark, otherwise it's Post Box Red or Snow White now...

Thanks for forwarding James,

I will grant permission for you to take a photo or two when it arrives as it may be one of the first Lava / Petrol Blue Yeti to arrive in UK !

It blends nicely with the the black exterior trim and roof rails in my opinion.

See you in September hopefully. :)

Either blue is a mile away from the lovely bright vRS blue but this new one is still a nice subdued classy sort of colour. If you like black but have had to many a black car perhaps this is a nice compromise I think. I also think it will look black to most people when passing! So good luck keeping it clean!

Sorry I don't like that.
I find the storm blue is on the dark side,unless in sunshine.
Why not save the extra money and go for Pacific blue?;)

Hi, new person here! Just wondering which dealer had a colour sample? I've called up a couple and they both said they havent got one so couldnt show me the colour in the flesh.

Cheers

The dealer here in Sweden had no real color sample. They got the image from Skoda. They told me that color samples will be sent to all dealers soon.

I think the brochures are going to be reprinted in the UK next month with the new colours, and then I suspect the paint swatches will follow shortly.

Is Lava Blue and Petrol Blue definitely the same colour, just different names? Like Muscovado and Mato?
I'm sure I saw a Czech brochure will Lava Blue in it recently and it looked lighter than I was expecting. I may have dreamt it though....

The new international brochure gives colour code 0F0F for Lava Blue, so when you get details of Petrol Blue you'll be able to see whether it has the same colour code or not.

I saw all the new color samples at my dealer today. The Lava Blue was dark. Storm Blue was a dark color, but Lava Blue was even darker. Looked good in bright sunlight, but looked black otherwise. The Malachite Green was a little bit lighter, and looked good in bright sun, but I didn't like it then the sun didn't shine. Terracotta Orange was a pleasent suprise. For now, It's my favorite. Decisions, decisions...

I like Lava Blue, if it looks as good as the photoshopped image it lends an understated class to the Yeti in this shade. Definitely a colour i'd consider if I ever replace mine. I considered Storm Blue but found it too bright, and also considered Muscavado. In the end went for Steel Grey.
My personal favourite though at the moment is the Orange. A real suprise when you see it in the flesh.

Hi Guys, I have just ordered a Lava Blue Yeti as the sample looked awesome in the sun and the best of the darker colours for in the winter. Anyone got a Lava blue Yeti who can post some pictures so we can all see what it really looks like on the car. Thx

I've not had the time to upload all my photos from the Frankfurt motorshow but they had a LOT of cars there in what I think was Lava blue. Here are some of the Yeti:

Just remember show floor lights are awful to show true colour.

If you mean the Regency / Malachite Green, I'm sure that no?
We have ordered one and seen a 15" x 15" color sample.

I have ordered the Regency Green without seeing it because I like Green cars :D and the Gobi Sand goes really well with it IMHO... we shall see, fingers crossed. Mind you because it's a Company car I haven't had any updates on expected delivery dates... just hanging around the Forum like something proverbial... waiting... waiting and anticipating. Can't wait to have another Skoda after getting rid of the Octavia at the wrong time! :S

Not sure about Lave Blue, but here is Ivor wearing his Pacific Blue coat.

He was waiting for me outside my office the day this was taken. :giggle:

In the original Yeti Catalogue the Gobi Sand is a good choice. In Finland the leather interior is as a very costy option, we got our Yeti with black Dune fabric interior, the gobi Dune did not motivate us.

Did you get your Lava Blue Yeti? Are you happy with the colour and could you post a pic? I have ordered Petrol Blue, but still have time to change it if necessary.
