      After The Google does the translating for you, enjoy some of the photos in this piece from a German fan site. Notably, I did not realize that there would be LED lighting for the rings around the air vents and for the speakers. Lends a very cool look to the cabin.

      wish the DIS was larger, like the higher models. Plus what's with the LED display for temp & fuel gauge. How can we know when we are down to the very bottom the tank with that kind of display?

      The trunk is really small. I wonder how much larger the sportback's is, given that it will have the same wheelbase.

      There is this vent like thing on either side of the trunk, below the trunk cover, not sure what that is.

      There also seem to be some LED outlining the front door speaker grills. Too dim to be puddle lights.

      Sportback will be without a doubt larger - it rides on a longer wheelbase and has a more tapered avant-like rear end.

      Vents are probably for airflow in the cabin, to pull air out for recirculation.

      LED outlining appears to be on the speaker grills and on the HVAC vents as well. Nice touch.
