Thanks! It does actually look a bit lighter than usual in these photos, the colour changes quite alot depending on the light... Id say the first photo is more representative of how it usually looks (in gloomy uk weather!)

Be nice to see that color in the flesh, unfortunately I've only seen one black (mine), loads of white and a few red.

The dark blue and the light blue are the colors I would really like to see

Our Mii is black and looks lovely. Definitely not my choice but it has grown on me and I like it now. My favourite colours are still the light blue (makes me think of my old florida blau mk1 golf) and Seat do a sunflower yellow on the Mii. Little cars can get away with cheeky colours. I like the tungsten silver as well.
In fact, there isn't really a duff colour on any of the up/Mii/citigo trio.

I think if the Metallic Night blue was a deep one like 'deep impact blue' on the new fiesta which looks gorgeous then it would be an easier decision.

this night blue seems a bit washed out on some pictures, almost dull or matt, then shiny and bright on other pics!

more individual than the black for sure, but hope I can see it or some other vehicle in it prior to ordering or may well be the 'safe' black which I have seen about and look great, especially with the triangle alloys.

Mine is Night Blue ""“ and I'd definitely call it "deep"

It does vary quite a bit in photos ""“ and in real life, in different lights. However, it never looks washed out in the flesh. To me, in heatwavy blazing sunshine like some of last summer (UK) it looks flat (but still dark), whereas in other lights, including sunshine like the last few days, it looks interesting and appealing ""“ I really like it.

My dealer had a set of metal swatches painted in the various up! colours ""“ I found them big enough to give me an accurate idea of the colour. Maybe your local dealer would have those. Make sure it's the up!'s Night Blue (code Z2) ""“ VW seem to do similar but not identical blues for other cars in their range. (And don't go by colours on paper, like the brochure ""“ of course, they don't behave in the light like the real painted metal.)
