I agree. Still ungainly, though.

Personally I think it looks a lot like an angry Hyundai i20 with a Honda HR-V interior.

I like it...






Interior doesn't look premium though I agree. Very HR-V crossed with the latest Jetta.

The air intakes above the grille are integrated into the bumper, which is clearly the sports package one. I think those could be absent on the normal bumpers which we have not seen yet.

As for the C-pillar, on a first sight it shouted Q2 to me. Yes it's not a separate panel, but still...and it does not have the curved upper chrome strip of the T-Roc

In this segment, that is hardly a bummer. You can still buy a slightly smaller Renault Twingo (or a Smart cousin) with rear engine, if you prefer RWD.
The last FR super mini was IMO the Toyota Starlet in 1985(which in itself was hardly a performance machine), after which that also switched to FWD, so I guess we had time to get used to that. Apart from a longitudinal engine with it's packaging compromises, in combination with the small engines these cars have that rarely overpower front wheels, even on skinny econo tires, makes zero sense in sub compacts anyway...

Imo this sketch shows the normal model, as the wheels are smaller, the rear bumper entirely different (and hello there fake exhausts), and the front (fake) side vents smaller as well, with less visual drama below the grilletoo. But, those vents above the grille seem to stay...

OMG, those fake exhausts. I expect the E-Tron Quattro also to get fake exhausts, not because they intended to, but because it simply slipped through the process, they got so accustomed to fake things that hey never noticed.

That does sound like a reasonable explanation, given VW/Audi's recent past (incl. the CEO's arrest yesterday)

Does this compete in the same class as the Golf? I think I prefer the relatively simplicity of the VW....
