So, how Black is Ruse Black?

So, how Black is Ruse Black?

When we ordered our ‘Ruse Black’ HRV in September, we had no idea what Ruse Black would look like – the dealer didn’t have a colour sample. We ‘chose’ it simply because we could get a faster delivery if we took that particular colour, If we had all choices available we likely would have selected Modern Steel, similar’ish to the Polished Metal of our Jazz which we are replacing.

However having now this Tuesday taken delivery of the new HRV, we now finally know what Ruse Black looks like, it’s somewhere between the Ultimate Black of our XF and the Polished Metal of our Jazz. The photo should give you an idea.

We actually quite like it, it’s got a definite slight purple hue, which allegedly according to a poster in Malaysia becomes more pronounced in the sun. We’ll have to wait a few months to verify that!

We too have ruse black ex manual petrol on order delivery due end of Jan 2016. It is nice to see a British version as our colour choice was made by looking at Indonesian, Malaysian and Australian models on the web. Managed to look at a dealer colour sample last Month whilst sun was out. Looked very nice. Hope you enjoy. Very envious still one month to go....fingers crossed.

colour derived from the ruse black Lenten rose also called Christmas rose.

Love my turbo in Ruse Black. The sports from in gloss black is a great contrast and brings out the colour even more

We love our Ruse Black, the purple tinge changes with variant light.
