The 2020 Audi RS7 is definitely looks interesting. My initial take is I like the styling inside and out.
However, there's a lot wrong with what's going on at that front end.

Yeah, that grill is naff. Looks okay from a distance, but if I had to walk by that each morning I'd really get annoyed by it. Not sure why they don't just stick those sensors behind the Audi rings instead.

I'm not sure why there's an upper and lower mesh sections either. 🤷🏻*♂️
It would be easier to digest the layered mesh if it didn't also include two big-ass sensors... and this is coming from a guy with a big-ass sensor on the front of his car.

Our Q5 has one pattern for 95% of the grill but the area inside the rings is totally different, like my old 1996 A4. Like this:

It's like they've got a warehouse of grill parts and just slap on anything that fits.

love the tach; this is what the up and coming ///M cars need instead of their new and confusing counter clockwise tach.

The current trend is big gaping holes (that are mostly filled for aerodynamics). I liked it better when the trend was slim/thin holes and making the lights and everything low-profile.

It's an automatic. Who cares? Just stick it on the maps and move on like 99% of drivers.

I dont care was countering someone saying how it's so cool. It's like mullets coming back and people thinking they are great, if you were around you dont fall for the same dumb thing twice.

Another beautiful design by Audi. BMW needs to step it up and quit making Lexus and Infiniti copies.

The problem is, the Audi has zero emotion. You're lucky if you get any kind of burble. You have to be ON IT and you only get a small 'fart' in-between shifts.

Not really. My S5 only farts past 4,500 RPM which I'm never able to explore thanks to traffic.
