You said it. The current Superb is elegant & understated, this one looks confused!

Well to me it looks like a rebadged BMW. Somehow, the front and tail lights seem to be highly inspired by BMW. Is this the VWs take on BMW 5 series at the price of 3 Series???

very good find.The new Superb is good mix of the main design influence in the automotive world.Many switches coming from Vw passat and Golf.The rear is a mix between BMW 3 series coupe and a little bit a Volvo S80 new gen.Front lacks of personality

It was earlier a stretched Passat...so the car is now one segment smaller...can we expect a price correction? naa don't think so.
also this means no V6 petrol or diesel. VR6 pertol perhaps

Could have made the front grille and the rear much attractive and imposing, otherwise a goodlooking sedan.

Passat, Laura are based on the latest Golf platform. The Superb is based on streched Golf platform. Correct me if i am wrong.

The Passat is also based on a stretched Golf Platform.

The A5 Platform on which the Laura is based is also the platform of

A good front end, but the rear could have been better. As mentioned in one of the earlier posts, the tail lights indeed look like Fiesta-ish to me. It seems like the car is based on the Passat platform, a thought though.
