Please advise me if color P6W is metallic or just plain chalk white? It's a bet
with a high stake.

I think you will have to settle that at the Hyundai dealer as that color code does not come up in any searches. Maybe it is too new.


I contacted a friend that works at the body shop of the local Hyundai dealer, if his answer is correct, there are no winners or losers in your bet. This is what he told me: All paints in the Kona color chart (and any other car manufacturer) are water-based acrylic polyurethane enamel, currently the most widely used paint for safety reasons, including reducing paint's environmental impact. The "metallic" look is provided by the glossy pigments added to the paint composition. All Kona colors, he says, are made this way. Well, metallic or plain chalk, who knows?
