When you buy a new Volkswagen from us, you will be able to choose from a wide range of lovely colours and finishes, as well as obviously configuring the spec of your dream Volkswagen too.

Following a lovely coastal drive the other day when the sea almost exactly matched the cool, “Blue Silk” metallic shade we see our customers so often selecting, it inspired us. Where can you spot the awesome VW paint colour range in nature?

Here are some of our suggestions – can you think of any others?

Blue Silk as seen on the Polo S

Blue Silk is always a popular colour in the Polo range, probably because its cool, calming shade can take away some of the stresses of your commute. In addition, it manages to look classy and sophisticated, without standing out TOO much in a crowd, a balance that some of the brighter and more “out-there” shades struggle to achieve.

Red Flash paint on the Scirocco GTS

Red is a classic car colour, eternally popular, and never more so than when it’s combined with the sleek lines and sporty silhouette of a true sports car like the Scirocco GTS.

In fact, we chose this model to showcase it because of that subtle bonnet stripe which we think just completes the effect. Seen in nature, this red tends to be associated with one of two extremes – danger, or attraction. Which do you feel with this wall of fierce red flowers and that Volkswagen accompaniment?

Tumeric Yellow Metallic as seen on the Arteon R-Line

Talk about an obvious answer – even the paint name acknowledges the influence of that most yellow of spices, the Turmeric root. However, we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to show off the stunning new Arteon model, the latest addition to the always luxurious Volkswagen range. This premium saloon just oozes elegance, and in the distinctive shades like this one you’ll never have to worry about getting lost in a crowd – or finding your car in a car park!

Bottle Green on the Beetle Cabriolet

In a “last farewell” to summer, we’ve chosen to showcase our final paint choice in nature on the summery VW Beetle Cabriolet, a summer classic. This rich, almost emerald green is a direct match for that spectacular green you can spot in a peacock’s feathers – rich, sophisticated and very luxurious. In addition, green isn’t a particularly common colour on British roads, so you’ll be guaranteed to turn a few heads!

Volkswagen I.D. Crozz introduced at Shanghai Motor Show

The desire to find a more sustainable and reliable fuel for cars is one that has swept the motoring industry for decades, but in the last ten years the progress being made is starting to bear fruit and Volkswagen are at the very front of this revolution.

With hybrids-a-plenty and remarkably fuel efficient petrol and diesel engines already available, the German manufacturer has looked to spearhead a move into the electric market. The new I.D. Crozz shown off at this year’s Shanghai Motor Show is the third member introduced to the VW E.V. family and could go on sale as soon as 2020.

The brands latest I.D. model is substantially larger than either of the first two debutants. Its Crossover stature means the I.D. Crozz stands 200mm longer and 50mm wider than the current Volkswagen Tiguan. The new four-seat concept will offer ample cabin space thanks to the manufacturer’s hugely ergonomic MEB platform, designed especially with E.V.’s in mind. The increase in cabin space isn’t detrimental to luggage space either, as the I.D. Crozz delivers 515 litres for your belongings.


Aesthetic-wise, the Crozz takes great inspiration from both the I.D. Buzz microbus and I.D. hatchback already introduced. The electric Crossover will feature animated LED lights to communicate with other commuters on the road, and will now deliver front lighting strips so the motion is more realistic and slick.

The power for the I.D. Crozz will come from a duo of electric motors. The front axle will be powered by a 75KW unit whilst the rear gets a more powerful 150KW. This pair combine to deliver a remarkable 302bhp and when fused together with the 83kWh battery you can reach a staggering 310 mile range!

The I.D. Crozz is designed to mainly focus on being rear-wheel drive however as driving conditions become more hazardous its intuitive technology switches to four-wheel drive to create a more stable driving atmosphere.

The I.D. Crozz is fully autonomous and when this mode is selected, the steering wheel fluidly slides into the dash to create a more relaxing and spacious experience. A new 10.2 inch touchscreen system has been fitted to allow you easy-control of the cars technologies; whether it be air-con or audio player.

Volkswagen boss Dr Herbert Diess has already confirmed the car is nearing production so we can expect to see the reality of this stunning concept within the next three years. Exciting times lie ahead for the German giants, be sure to keep your eyes peeled on more from the I.D. series.
