Personally not happy with the design they went with, only perk over the mk7 (shouldn't have gotten rid of it) is the dash electronics. Reminds me of an older mazda 3 hatchback

I still say it's hard to really judge until the final production version is out and I see it in the flesh. Anytime there is a redesign of any vehicle the inevitable "it looks like......." comes up. Most vehicles look pretty much the same, thankfully VW has kept this evolutionary on the exterior. For me the bigger question is, how it drives and how I will feel with no physical buttons not he interior.
