If you drive a dark green car, you are traditional, trustworthy and well-balanced, according to Leatrice Eiseman, author of "The Color Answer Book." A dark blue set of wheels could mean you are credible, confident and dependable, but if you prefer to drive a light to medium blue car, you are cool, calm and faithful.
But what would people say about Fahrenheit Orange and Fahrenheit Yellow, Volkswagen's new colors? If you are a driver looking to stand out from the crowd - and self-expression is a key component in your search for a new car - the latest line of special-edition Volkswagens will not disappoint.
The 2.5-liter Wolfsburg Edition Jetta includes 16-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, leatherette seats and ranges from $19,360 to $20,435. The car is available in five different color combinations: silver with anthracite trim, white with beige trim, black with beige trim, black with anthracite trim and platinum gray with art gray trim.
If it is the unique color that you are looking for, the Fahrenheit GTI or the Fahrenheit GLI might be the car for you. The GTI is available in Fahrenheit Orange, adding to the flashiness of this sporty, high-performance hatchback.
The GTI features European sport-tuned suspension along with 18-inch "Charleston" alloy wheels, heated leather sports seats, a sunroof, orange interior trim, orange stitching on the floor mats and optional Sirius Satellite Radio. Only 1,200 models are available for $27,665.
The GLI special edition, meanwhile, offers the same features as the Fahrenheit GTI, but with a Fahrenheit Yellow exterior and yellow trim and stitching in the interior. Just 1,200 of the vehicles will be available to the public, ranging in price from $27,880 to $28,955.
Rounding out the new models is the Triple White New Beetle convertible, which features a Campanella White exterior, white interior and a white convertible roof boot. For $25,990, each of these 3,000 special-edition vehicles offers 17-inch alloy wheels, a three-spoke, leather-wrapped steering wheel, white leatherette seats, white leatherette center armrest, black carpeting, floor mats and door panels, and Sirius Satellite Radio.
Whether it is the splashy color that catches your eye or the sporty features, these new models offer plenty of personality, variety and individuality. For more information, visit www.vw.com.
