    Ugly front end kills it for me. What's with the Germans putting these grills on their cars that literally take up the entire front? But yeah Envoy U should get it.. So we can read how much better U think it is over your CTS.. Standard fair. The car and the reaction. And again... That front is ugly as ***. I take a CT5 with a black plastic windshield so I wouldn't have to see that thing coming lol

    Looks nice.

    With the oversized grill, same for Lexus, is the whole point to reduce the painted area and therefore reduce the chance of getting paint chips from kicked up stones on the highway? Or just stronger brand identity in a world where everything looks like a Chevy Cruze?

    Re: I'm Normally Not an Audi Guy, But...

    Really like the rear view. Front has usual huge grille. Nice proportions but not as nice as CT6. Nice color.

    This is a good example of the modern design trend of ridiculously huge wheels. I’m really glad CT4 didn’t go that direction. Huge wheels weigh more, which means more unsprung weight, which means worse handling. There’s a reason F1 doesn’t have wheels like this.

    Next ride: Maybe a 2020 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD

    Yes much like the Lexus, could not own that front end. The sides like all large sedans are complete meh. The old days of large metal creases are over. I give credit to Audi for the new tail LED lights that are multi-segment progressive. Basically the old Ford T-Bird lights and now Mustang lights on steroids. I've said before Cadillac should have done something like that as the Gen-2 CTS had some of the first lighting innovation with the light pipes.

    I'm not a fan of 4 door "coupes" but the Audi S/RS-7 does it the best. Looks pretty lean and mean if optioned correctly.

    Having ridden in and driven a friends new Q7, the amount of tech that Audi is putting in there stuff is utterly overwhelming. And for a 2 ton SUV it drives well too, like really well. I'm sure this follows suit.

    And I think it looks fantastic, grill and all. Understated and classy.

    Me either, and this doesn't change anything for me. Overdone, pimp, and how about a real front end instead of just "Grilles Is Us" and nothing even pretending to be style or a recognizable face?
    Are those 22s? This Big Wheel fad is getting utterly ridiculous.

    That's a good excuse but just an excuse for what in my view is utter laziness or lack of talent. Slapping a yooj-ass grille on the front is about as lazy and untalented as you can get.
