I think this car is silly (is chrome trim running along the upper window line and extending into the final pillar a thing now?), but I think it has the potential to be the VW Cabrio of our time (and I mean that as a compliment), if not priced too high.

To be fair, in case of FCA it means one new car every 2 years or so, but they do look sufficiently new when out (partly because they usually replace a 10 year old design). In case of VAG, it means copy/paste the same design on 27 cars per week. And don't you dare to forget those creases.....

...a bit dull if you ask me, though I think its target audience will be thrilled... personally I wouldn't mind if they would try to "disguise" Q2 with a bit of its own personality than with all that chrome :/

Meh. It looks like all of the chrome upfront is actually disguise, as well as the headlight shape. Same is true for the rear.

Has VW merged its design dept with Ford? Looks like a compact Edge

I agree, there still seems to be some disguise, but very little. It's not the most boring design in VAG lineup, but somehow it manages to look a bit bland yet busy at the same time.

Certainly this will sell, But I guess this together with the Kodiaq and Seat Ateca will cost a lot of tiguan sales....

That awful swirl over the rear haunches is pathetic. Even if the face is still not 100% revealed, there is no doubt that this is yet another VW with MY2008 styling. More than likely it will arrive in the USA overpriced. Not one manufacturer is quaking in fear. VW is the German Mitsubishi at this point.

It feels like VW's response to the Juke/C-HR segment styling wise.

It still has a bit of camo hiding the essential bits of design that could determine whether this is boring or at least acceptable.

Yes, some camo to come off, but looks OK, and better than Atlas and (it appears) Tiguan turned out, not that this is much of an accomplishment.

In following the grand VW tradition, the US will be getting a cheaper, crappier T-Roc:
