2016 Audi A4: Why???


Yes, why.

Why bother redesigning a car to make it look exactly the same?
Why not just "improve" the current one?
Why ruining the interior?
Why a 1996 design for a 2016 model?

I understand the "classic", "understated" excuses. But understated doesn't mean you copy the same design over and over.
This becomes one of these generic cars you used to see in architectural illustrations.
And the interior is far from understated. With bits, lines, dials everywhere. It's just clumsy.

Why???

(The yellow car is the "all new one")

2016 Audi A4



 OK... This is horrible.

I mean really. This is in NO WAY better looking than the current model.
Of course, it is lighter, more fuel efficient, and has yet another Audi take on "new" headlights.
But this is supposed to be an all new car.
Even BMW does a better job. This is by no mean "ugly ". That's not what I mean.
But an all new car should look maybe at least 5% different than the one it replaces.

There is no excuse for this crap.


But wait, there is worse! Inside.
Look at this.
I mean this is worse than the current interior. By far.
The new Audi interior design theme was previewed by the new (And equally horrible) Q7 interior.

Sure, the plastic must be of high quality. Etc...(As they are now). But look at the flat, uninspired dash. None of that interior looks as good as the current one. And there is either too much metal trim everywhere, or too much wood!
I mean just compare this to the new C Class interior. (!!!)

Audi is slowly but surely, replacing all its models by worse looking designs. (A3 Hatch, Q7, R8 and now A4).
It's is shame.
