I recently bought a picanto and ordered it in Chilli red. When it arrived I was disappointed that it looked nothing like the brochure pictures. Top picture is brochure chilli red, bottom picture is my car.

I checked the paint colour code and it says the colour is called shiny red.
Is this the same as chilli red?.
Does anyone know the colour code for chilli red.

It's a Picanto 3 purchased in November 2019. It's supposed to be Chilli red but looks very different to brochure. Paint code is A2R.

Brand new registered 2 Nov 2019. What I really need is to find someone who owns a chilli red car to read the code off the label on the passenger door frame.

I think I might be trying to check the build date if that's a launch colour - they came out in 2017:oops:.. Has it got any of the earlier features? Early 3's had a Bee sting aerial, not a shark fin.

Our Picanto3 is the colour of your car AFAIK. Chilli Red was ordered after seeing a Kia in that colour and delivered May 2019, with a shark fin aerial (standard on the 3).Photographs are no basis for deciding colours. Skoda do 3D paint models for their range.
The lights on that show car are odd, probably not UK spec, but that is the body colour on our driveway.

Paint is indeed A2R on SWMBOs 2019 Chilli Red Picanto3.🌶 Both colours have the same paint codes. With a little bit of Googling.
