Same Color Code, Different Name
Mazda, 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, 21R, above we call Moonlight Gray Metallic Clearcoat. It could also be called Grey Clearcoat, Moonstone Clearcoat, etc. depending on what the marketing department decided to call it.
