IMO it's a bit too early for a final judgement.
People complained a lot about the (Euro) Passat being very similar to the car it replaces - in real life it turned out light years better than the old one thanks too much improved proportions, although overall design is very similar. For those who never saw both cars parked one to another - the difference is striking. I'm hoping it'll also be the case with Polo, but let's wait and see.
