Finding your Hyundai Paint CodeLocation of Hyundai Paint Code
Hyundai codes are relatively easy to find as they are normally on the drivers door jamb. Some Hyundai models do manage to hide their color codes in the engine compartment so if it is not on the drivers door jamb, you have your work cut out for you.
The typical color code format is:
which corresponds to:
Blue Onyx Metallic Clearcoat
Some later Hyundais use a three character code.
A sample color plate would look like the picture shown below. Notice the Paint Code is S3. This is actually the same as S3B so even Hyundai can make it a bit confusing sometimes.
Same Color Code, Different Name
Hyundai, like all manufacturers, uses the exact same color across many models and then will have a different color name for each model. It's the same paint! This is why the color code is so important to order the correct paint.
For example, 3E , above we call Blue Onyx Metallic Clearcoat . It could also be called Blue Clearcoat, Ocean Blue Clearcoat, etc. depending on what the marketing department decided to call it.
