Whilst I really like the LandCruiser for it's capabilities, I never really got the reasoning behind a Lexus version of it; The grille is huge, works least of any Lexus here(givne the rest is a rugged...

They do indeed say it's a new platform, despite the body on it looking more or less the same; I guess in this case it means updated axles and new drivetrain, including the battery (probably the...

Hay a very strong VAG vibe to me, kind of like a cross between a Skoda Karoq and a SEAT Arona; Not ugly, just dull and, as the front end of the Skoda (that it reminds me of), also over designed;

The lack of platform utilization is staggering, given how Fiat is (together with Chrysler and it'S K-Car) among the pioneers of car platforms (over use); the FIat 128 platform basically spawned a lot...

I agree, the rear 3/4 view, with the Volvo like greenhouse and the Lexus taillights has very little immediate BMW to it; Still, I think it'S not an unattractive vehicle, but, as you say, I also...

I fully agree, a lot better actually ( I really think the regular 8 series looks rather ungainly on the road), this seems to have much better proportions;

However, it still reminds me of the Kia...

The shape does look more practical than many overly sporty CUVs, but length wise, there is no magic, as can be seen by the hardly existing leg room in the 3rd row; SUre, the 2nd row slides, but even...

Well, price wise I wouldn't consider it mid sized anywhere, and size wise definitely no one outside the US would either;

It's a lot better than before, finally proper luxury car (non FWD) proportions; The detailing seems in a very un VAG way restrained and elegant, probably there is hope other brands will dial back the...

The interior (on this fully speced press car) certainly looks very luxurious, but the exterior has some weird proportions, and the "soft edges" design approach has some first generation Tiguan to it;...

Looks good, and a lot better than the rather dull base ceed; It's however a bit weird that it is likely less practical than a regular ceed, given the sloping roofline;

That said, I agree, the...

It would indeed make a lot more sense to have a large, car based cross over (I think a RWD chassis based of the LS/LC, as hinted with their CUV concept not that long time ago would work as well), as...

Is this reflected in the pricing as well? Because on the outside, it still certainly is more 3 series/A4 sized, just the interior is more cramped;

I tend to agree, it didn't change much, and as a result, it didn't get ruined like the Octavia, and tehy didn't go headlight crazy like on some of their most recent CUVs.
