Subaru color charts list the names and swatches or descriptions of colors used by Subaru during a particular time frame. Drivers of Subaru vehicles might need to rely on these charts to determine which paint to use when having body work done on their cars.
Color charts also give the code used to identify the paint, allowing companies to reuse color names without having to worry about confusing different paints. Subaru vehicles generally have the name of the car's color on the top of the driver's-side strut. Potential buyers can also use this number to verify the original paint color of a car.
