Definitely blue. Sonic blue is one of my favorite colors. I like Electric Green too. Both of them really shine in the sunlight.

It is blue, not as blue as my 2000 Atlantic Blue (which I like a lot) but I like sonic blue better and again it is blue.

It definitely has purple hues to it. At work I'm dealing with colors all day, it doesn't matter how WHITE or how BLACK something may be, other people are going to see it differently. It's annoying...

I had a car that I painted Black Cherry before, it was a really really deep purple loaded with metallic, so it was almost color changing in the sun, from black to purple. Everyone drove me nuts with the different colors they thought it was.

I've got a friend that works at a dealership in the body shop as a painter and he said sonic blue has a tendencey to reflect other colors around it due to the tint and clear coat in the paint. it gets reflected back as a purpleish tint. but the car is blue, very blue.
