I would say yes it does look like that but in certain light it can look more greenish.
You would really need to see it in the flesh I think.

Think there's a different spread of photos to show it in different lights / conditions.
Interesting, a lot darker

Hi all, first time post but I am considering a kaikoura stone HSE lux but am unsure about the colour. Always had greys and blacks before so quite adventurous for me. It has the vintage tan leather and upgraded black alloys and lettering, not a full black pack. Just wondered what the views were on this colour as not sure. Sometimes its looks gold then greyish depending on the light. Thanks Simon.

Kaikoura is a nice colour, but beware the Tan leather....it's the hardest interior colour to shift when you need to move it on.

It's not dissimilar to what was known as Zanizibar on its predecessor (FL2), and as rare as hens teeth on UK specc'd vehicles.

I did like the orange when the DS first came out. The new for my18 is a bit dull in comparison and I didn't like it. So choice made for me, no orange, I got Firenza red, which when dirty looks a bit dull, or maybe that was the amount of dirty water on it from the puddles I drive through would make anything look dull.

2015 MY Freelander 2 SE Tech. Very good.
2006 Audi A4 Cabriolet. Very unreliable.

I'd of loved the orange but wasn't prepared to pay £1500 for paint!

After umming & arring about different colours I'm very happy with the Indus Silver with black roof & wheels etc

I started off with Scotia grey for my first two, DS lovely colour), then went to red ( cause I wasn’t brave enough for orange).
I then saw chippys aintree green DS ( called British Racing green on a Jaguar) and chose that on the FPace , sadly that colour is no longer available .

We can probably put that down to a catastrophic mistake by the “Cravat”😂
