We are in the search for a good quality budget friendly self-standing tent. Before we have been using the Quechua Quickhiker Ultralight 2 person tent and were quite happy with it. But we lacked the space inside quite a lot as well as the height. We need something under 2kg but at the same time not very expensive. We concerned about it being the light grey color as we do a lot of stealth camping and also the department for cooking and storing our backpacks. We have been looking into the Naturehike Star River 2 as it claims that it is a 4 season tent and quite spacious too. We like that the inner tent is not all made of mesh, as we would like it to be suitable for colder weather too. Have you tried this tent or any similar ones with the features we need? We would be grateful for all your suggestions.

It sounds like color is pretty important to you.  I have a Big Agnes tent that's exactly what you're describing, except for the fact that it's orange.  Their tents are popular because they're pretty good.  Maybe you can find one in a more neutral color, especially on same or lightly used.

Yes, we know that Big Agnes is one of the leaders in the industry. We now thinking about searching some used tent in a good condition from the ones that are more high quality as we don't want to compromise on that. So hopefully we can find it.

If weight is the priority-

Zpacks Duplex is available in Cameo.

Tent is 19.4 ounces (550 grams).  They have a free standing kit, that's 10.2 ounces (290 grams).

If you need more room the Triplex is available in Cameo as well.  No Free standing Kit but they do have light weight collapsible poles available for non trekking pole users.

Cost- Priority
Warbonnet has cameo sil-nylon tarps. The Superfly would be a really good hugely spacious option with doors.   Just add a Tyvek ground sheet.

Yes, unfortunately it is quite pricey for us as of right now. But we would love to try it out in the wilderness is somebody would give us this chance sometime.
