Actually this shares close to nothing with the Q2 (other than that both are based on the MQB)
The VW T-Roc is where you should look ;)

IMO the T_Roc looks closer to the Q2 than to this. This seems to look like a Captur greenhouse on an Ateca, with it's 3rd side window, airier green house and straight roof line slightly more like a CUV/SUV than the "raised hatchback" look of the T-Roc and Q2 (which have so similar proportions and greenhouse shape that tehy might share body structure below the sheet metal as well)

Ultimately I guess this will spawn a more or less rebadged Skoda version in the same sense as the Ateca/Karoq relation, but size wise they will be very close.

Same platform. No doubt same suspensions. No doubt most of the components under the metal. And so on.

Both MBQ (derivative)
Both within mm the same length
Both will share some engines and gearboxes

....... no nothing alike.

I was just saying that if the Q2 had the same rear light treatment as the Q3, Q5 and Q7 then it would have looked like this.

..... so VAG group from just having the odd CUV in its line up its going to have so many with quite a few treading on each others toes.
However, if you can charge over 35k for one version you are selling for 16k with another brand .... good luck to them!

As I said I am aware they are both using the MQB (including engines, etc.), but the T-Roc looks to use the completely same body structure as the Q2 in contrast to the Arona.
The Arona also uses the smaller A0 version of the MQB and will be around 10cm (not millimeters) shorter than the Q2/T-Roc.

That is what I meant, maybe it wasn't clear. The Q2 and T-Roc seem to not only share the same platform, but also the complete body structure just with different sheet metal (like Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga for example).
This seems to become more common in the VW group of companies (SEAT's new midsize SUV will also share body structure with the Tiguan Allspace).

five days to go.... and they swear that this is it!

...though, except that two tone body color is getting very popular and "less French" with each new day, I cant determine if this is Arona or not... if it is than we're looking in yet another design that could be distinguished from other brand models only by "the force it hits you" in the event of an accident...

Oh I'm pretty certain this is the Arona. Matches all the previous pics. And yes, it does look very "yet another CUV" design. At least it looks a little less boring than the Ateca/Karoq, so could cater those Yeti customers that feel the "funny" design theme has been abandoned. I'm prety sure though we will soon see a VW/Skoda version with very few changes...

It's better looking than the upcoming VW T-Crap, but the Stonic kills it.

I don't know how it could kill it, they look all so similiar :)
We will have to see it in a color that doesn't eat all the details.
I really like the Stonic's C pillar treatment though, I'll give you that.

Where the Stonic wins for me stylistically is that it has the styling restraint of a VW/Audi without being so restrained that it looks like a 2008 model. It also has some of the flamboyance that the French love, but are completely inept at using tastefully.
