Bit of a mixed bag, but at least it's saying 'cheese' for the photographer.

As is often the case these days, the basic shape is fine, but some of the detail is rather questionable.

The technology might be interesting but the external styling was apparently left to the apprentice with the least promise.

Was the designer looking over the shoulder of the Arteon designer?  "I'll just change the grille from horizontal lines to vertical lines and change the rear lights and no one will notice"

Looks nice though and a lot better than the current German saloons (aside from the Arteon)

That doesn't look too bad to me to be honest. Tone down some of the detailing and it could be a winner.
