    Have you seen sandstorm metallic in person?

    Hi everyone, this is my very first post. I have been reading and learning about the 2017 CR-V and just put a deposit down to have a local dealer find a EX-L in sandstorm for me. I'm a VW TDI owner, and that lovely vehicle will be returned to VW this Friday.

    I haven't been able to find anything in sandstorm local to me, I was hoping someone here can help me with a description of the color. I know the description is metallic, but the pictures I have seen look more matte to me. If you have seen it in person, what is your opinion?

    And if by some chance you have one in your garage, I would really love to see pictures! Thanks!

    I have seen the Sandstorm in person in bright sunlight, and I can tell you that it's a light golden tan color that's quite nice. It's not "gold" like the Honda Accords of the early 2000s, but it's more towards the gold side of tan than the white side (if that makes any sense). It's actually 3rd in my color choices for my CR-V (Basque Red and Obsidian Blue are the first two).

    The Sandstorm does look a bit matte to me also... not "shiny metallic" like the Gunmetal or Modern Steel. It could just be a lighting trick of all the CR-V curves with the lighter paint job. I have not seen it in artificial light or cloudy conditions.

    I've seen the color at my local dealership, yes it is metallic, but it is subtle. You have to get up close to the vehicle, direct sunlight also helps, to see that it's metallic. Sandstorm metallic isn't a color I would chose, but then again, I tend to like brighter colors and everyone has different tastes.

    Thanks, guys! I was actually hoping it was a smidge on the metallic side. I thought I would just go ahead and start the vehicle out in the color of dirt. I was just hoping it could be shiny, pretty dirt. =)

    Just bought sandstorm metallic yesterday in touring awd. I wanted red or blue but dealer had sandstorm on the floor and I really liked it. It's shiny, not as metallic looking as the gunmetal grey that was next to it. It's bright and looks a bit good under certain lighting. Really beautiful for my tastes anyways.

    I have the touring version in the garage. It's a light tan and there's some light sparkle to it. It seems to change color under different light where it seems to become lighter during the night.

    I have seen it in person. It's gorgeous, like a storm of sand. It's metallic, but like the white diamond pearl, its subtle. It's more plain than metallic. It's a beautiful color, like something you'd see on a Jeep. You would get lost in the Sahara. If it was available in black interior that would've been my color of choice.

    I appreciate all the feedback very much. Thank you for taking the time to answer. I am very excited to take delivery of my very first Honda ever! Just waiting on the diesel nightmare with VW to be over.
