How are R6 colors compared to older Canons

How do you feel about R6 colors, specifically in LIghtroom?

My FF story goes:

6D - I really liked those colors. Warm and punchy but still natural. I guess they could be called "Canon classic"

5D4 - A very nice upgrade of course, with the exception of the colors; they felt strange compared with the 6D.

R - Colors somewhat better than 5D4, but slightly cold and still missing  the 6D colors.

5D "classic" - bought a cheap one just for the fun - and wow what nice colors it can give.

I don't use DPP. I  generally prefer and use Camera Standard in Lightroom. Fiddling with color tuning is not my cup of tea, except adjusting white balance.

For the R I use the colorfidelity profile if there is a lot of green instead of Camera Standard.

Now, how about R6? Since Abode doesn't provide Camera Standard, I read many are happy with the colorfidelity profiles.

But are colors more towards classic Canon colors from a color science point of view (CFA?) - or more the "modern" 5D4 / R colors?
