Whilst I wouldn't say the new A7 is ugly, I generally agree - it got worse in a lot of minor details, that all sum up to a now okay instead of gorgeous model. The amount of creases, LED bling and fake vents, grilles and exhausts has somehow totally gotten out of control at VAG, but especially Audi, who, despite having a rather dull shape, at least usually had very well executed detailing, but not longer now. Even on a cleaner design like here, that poorly executed any actually serving no design purpose fake exhaust is attached just to have one more detail.
The in general more bulbous and at the same time boxier green houses and overhangs also help little, tbh.
I really don't know for whom they make that, apart from probably some annoying youtubers or lower quality car magazines like AutoBild raving on how the even more aggressive grille will "wipe off others" from the left lane on the Autobahn....
