Of course the 2020 Ford Escape has a larger screen in China...



The 2 top photos are the Chinese market model.

And, like most Fords sold over there, it has a much larger screen available than the equivalent US models.
But in the case of the Escape, it also has a more upscale and different dashboard and console design.
The whole thing does seem more upscale. And less like the 2019 Ford Focus interior. (The one not sold over here anymore.)
Outside, the Chinese model also has a different front end.

Interesting...

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")
