well... people in general find it "Golf-like" on outside and "Leon-like" on the inside... and it's hard to dissagree...

but to be completely honest, its exterior is "down to earth" version of this:





and its interior is REALLY "down to earth" version of this:






so i guess, their "ass" is kind of covered

I don't know. 307 and current 308 used to be the taller ones.

Spotted in wild for the first time:

The front looks good, but the rear...

Anyway, it is really golf-like, this is quite good comparison of similar style photos...

Looks good but its one of those cars that needs bigger wheels to turn heads. I don't think it looks like the Golf, if anything it looks classier

Classier Golf Mk7, that fits...

Bigger wheels will definitely help, but the rear parts will look too tall anyway. They could do more there...

It's definitely fussier slightly than the Golf, but I prefer the more restrained look of the Golf, though it would not hurt VW to make the Golf more jazzy looking.

I don't think that a good design should need big wheels to turn heads. Basically everything can look good "in the right color" and with big wheels (ok, probably not an Aztec or a Ssangyong), but design should work generally, not only in occasions. The Golf might be a bit boring, but basically doesn't even look wrong with the basic 15" or the pictured 16" alloys. The Peugeot does seem to have 17" wheels, which IMO is already rather large for a compact car with probably 100-120hp, and still seems a bit small. but let's be realistic, 18 or 19" wheels cost a fortune to replace, absolutely ruin the ride, and actually don't really help handling (think unsprung masses, or lift a say 15/16" wheel and then a 19" one).
