You're right, that looks very awkward.

I'm actually struggling to understand how this is possible because this isn't based on the old A6 platform but the latest MLP which shifts the front wheels forward a full 160mm.

The little-wheel/big-tire effect is not doing the look any favors either....

If you look where the front axle is, you can still see a huge amount of overhang, but compared to Audis of past, as Foot mentioned, it's considerably better.

Oogolay.

I hate it when automakers build cars like this. Then I hate it even worse when stupid fat American with bad taste go buying these monstrosities designed for 6 kids and 4 dogs to be stuffed into.
