2019 Kia Niro

My 2018 Niro EX exterior color is crimson red. In the 2019 model I notice that the red color is now called Runaway red. Does anyone know if runaway red is "exactly" the same color as crimson red.

No. they are two different colours. the older Crimson colour code is K3R also sold under the name Temptation Red. The new Runaway red is CR5. From what I can tell, it is a different paint pigment manufacturer starting in 2019.

It's too bad that Kia in Canada has stopped the red color in 2019... the K3R was more darker than the CR5.

and BTW, congrats for your nomination!
