2018 Volkswagen Golf R Interior, Exterior and Review

Since the early 2000s, the automotive world has drowned in a funereal wash of charcoal black car interiors. It’s easy to blame the Germans, who pioneered it in their prestige brands, and indeed it was often referred to as a ‘germanic’ in the literature.

These days, a non-black interior option is the standout, and a largely positive one at that. Why are car interiors so overwhelmingly black right now?

VW do a wonderful interior, but this colour scheme is so ubiquitous regardless of brand.

Conversely, exterior colour palettes continue to evolve. Let’s hope charcoal black becomes a trend and reverts to one of many options available to the purchasing public. In the meantime, here is a selection of mainstream cars going out on a limb with interior colours.

Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a

Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you
don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?

I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google

Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself
during the coronavirus scare!
