I've seen 2 purple (might be the same one) here in Toronto/ mississauga Ontario. Didn't know it came in purple..
The Mazda 2 got the green dropped for the 2014 model year. Now it's two shades of red, black, white, silver, and blue. The green was definitely my favorite color on the 2. For awhile I almost considered getting the Mazda 2 in green over the Fiesta in lime squeeze back when lime squeeze was about the best Fiesta color... The spirited green on a Fiesta would be really nice though. The green envy is nice for sure, but I just like the darker hue of the spirited green.I don't get why manufacturers waste good colors on base cars. If it's available on the base car, it should be available on the high-end/sport version. Mazda does this with "spirited green metallic". Great color, and they waste it on the Mazda2. They DO use it on the Miata in Japan (as a one year special edition). I would stop at nothing to have a spirited green Miata, or even a Mazdaspeed3. But no, they use it only on that one model and that's it. At least MINI has the customization part down pat, even if they lack reliability and inexpensiveness.
I think Mazda is probably the worst with their colors though. On the Miata, you get 10 shades of gray, red, and a dark blue that looks black. Every 10 years or so they'll get a wild hair and throw in yellow, and then take it away again. Can you tell I have a love/hate relationship with Mazda
