What; the fascination designers have with headlights that do not mesh smoothly with the grille? This looks like headlights from one car on the grille from another.

Its a technique to break up the visual bulk around the front of modern car designs I reckon

In this case it has the totally opposite effect.

The concept looks great, this spy shot though makes it look very unflattering. It seems like a Chinese-designed car and while some may like that sort of this, i can't see it attracting buyers in Europe. It kinda looks like a Gen 1 Superb..

No, I don't think too many like that! ;)

The grille looks a lot like the Kia tiger nose to me.

Neither modern, special or premium looking, just a sad and boring automobile;

The worst part is that some German magazines speculate this could be the next Seat Leon as well (a case of Ateca/Karoq or Polo/Ibiza like reskin), which would be even worse. After all, the Rapid sedan already had a seat sibling, the Toledo (is that still on sale?)

The headlights and grille already look like the new Seat face on the upcoming Tiguan rebadge (Tarraco), so I could see that it was already designed with a Seat version in mind as well.

Wow, what a surprise. A modern Skoda that looks nothing like the concept. Wonderfully cheap details. Terrible lines around the grille. Why would anyone buy this.

Tons of spyshots, I guess the real deal is not far away; Anyway, the shape says "MY 2005" more than anything else; I hope the rumors that this will also spawn the next Seat Leon are not true, given the yawn potential this has.
