I always look to the grandfather of water cooled VWs..that is the MKI Golf and Jetta...they were "handsome" which is what I consider to be
the genesis of their modern day styling. MKI, II, IV, MKI Scirocco, all very "handsome" cars. Things went down hill with the early Passat/Quantum
Corrado, ....The VW Lamando is a handsome car that is part of VW DNA. It doesn't necessarily mean "attractive".
