What are they thinking with that headlight shape? How? Why? It's 2017 and Mazda is making more elegant and slim headlights than Audi.
They have completely lost their game on detailing (this is more apparent on the new A8 which just looks worse after its debut).
Something about the greenhouse looks very awkward in profile, particularly the rear. The grille is plain nasty.
I have to agree about the A8. Seen one in flesh recently, in real life the long over hang/cab forward/FWD shape is even more apparent, and combine that with the flat and wide appearance some GM W body or Chrysler 90ies LX cars come to mind proportion wise. And the "more LED bling and chrome and fake exhaust" detailing approach really doesn't spell class to me...
