It does look bigger than the Passat it is based on.
It also doesn’t look as modern as the VW.
They still do not show it but the rear is supposed to incorporate a new design that is both a hatch and a trunk.
Something the upcoming Passat CC might also end up using.
Basically you can choose to open it like a conventional trunk, or move the whole thing up (including the rear window) like a hatchback.

First glance it looked like a combo of the current 9-5 and the Sebring.
This car stinks of the VW Phaeton
I think it’s actually based on the Jetta. Check out the shape of the back door’s glass.
I changed my mind. It looks like they looked at the already awkward c pillar from the Jetta for inspiration and made it worse.
Looks strange like Toyota Avalon on chrystal meth.
It’s kind of sad.
The previous generation Superb was so much more elegant than the Passat.
This is decent, but nowhere near the older car.
why not have just a regular hatchback? like the one in skoda’s own octavia?
The first car that came to my mind was the BMW 7-series from like 15 yrs ago… And I agree with previous posters, that C pillar is catastrophic.
