All IMO, of course, but.... the tailights, to me, look like a virtual carbon copy of any current Audi sedan. The kink in the windowline behind the C-pillar is very reminiscient of the last gen Ford Mondeo. The slightly squashed DLO seems related to the current Fusion/Mondeo. Could be the angle of the photo, but the sleeker appearance is very un-VW (CC and Arteon aside), the surface development is markedly diferent, and even the door handles look quite different.
I actually think it looks quite decent.... But will it stand out in any way (other than having a Germanic driving flair, which mainstream America couldn't care less about) againt the very impressive crop of current mid-sized sedans? Prob not.
