This will look very familiar to A5/S5 Sportback owners. The VW Arteon, I can't believe how similar it looks from certain angles, the side and rear windows look like they'll have the same part number! Interestingly built on the MQB platform unlike the A5/S5 that's built on the MLB.

What's the general consensus (colour aside!)?

I saw a review by carwow on this. I actually think it's a very good looking car. But the interior looks dull and no where near Audi standards, and it's an expensive car, by VW standards so not sure how it will do

Looks more A7 sized than A5 sized? Maybe it's the wheels...

It's slightly longer than the A5 Sportback but a fair bit shorter than the A7. It's effectively the Passat CC replacement.

It's only available with transverse 4 cylinder petrol and diesels at launch later in the year so doesn't step on the toes of the higher specced A5 Sportback's.

Ha, ha ....... no, not for me. looks a bit too much like the current Mondeo.

Every other angle though, love it. The haunches look especially appealing.
