Not impressive.
Plus Adrian Van Hooydonk although Adrian designed the E63/4 under Chris Bangle and in my opinion (it is a marmite design), I love the design so I wont be too harsh on him

Rear lights look a bit too aftermarket for my taste.

Are you aware of the fact that the 5 LCI headlights were very probably greenlight years before the reveal of the 2020 Skoda Octavia last last year?

Huh?

Harim Kabib's original work has been defaced with this LCI.

He must either be laughing or crying from KIA's headquarters where he recently became head of design.

Probably. LCIs May even be approved when the car is first rolled out and years before the actual LCI is to go into effect

At first glance weeks ago I wasn't really feeling the design of the taillights, but seen here illuminated they're looking pretty good! And I really like those hockey sticks for the headlight design, they just work nicely. Also love the grille!!

Are you aware the new Octavia has been in development for over 2 years? And which car came out first?.

I think it looks pretty good. I don't care about how it may look like some other car. All that matters, to me, is I think it looks good to me.
