If you guys wanted a sportier version for the e-Tron SUV we originally seen months ago, these pictures of the sportier, coupe-like version come as a relief. I couldn't be happier with the design but at the same time not entirely surprised as it takes on common coupe-like styling seen throughout the industry and of course within Audi. The changes here also go beyond pure aesthetics, as you'll see in the quoted text below:

At least buyers will be able to opt for cameras instead of traditional wing mirrors, like in the regular e-tron. Meanwhile, expect the Sportback to also come with the latest in onboard tech, such as the Audi Virtual Cockpit, Audi Parking System Plus with 360-degree display and rear-view camera, Lane Departure Warning and MMI Navigation Plus and plenty more, as standard. The intelligent Matrix LED headlights, adaptive cruise control and previously-mentioned wing cameras will probably remain optional extras.

So many automakers are reverting to these full width lightbars on their newer models. MB, Porsche, Lexus, Kia, Lincoln all have new models that have gone this route and each has had varying levels of success doing so. Will be interesting to see how designers look to keep these accents fresh and unique.

Someone I know that buys Hyundai's said its happening even with the new Sonata which comes to my surprise.
In a way its great because this will allow budget buyers some of what's happening on higher ends of the automotive world without paying the high pricetags these come with.

Just another design trend that will be popular for a few years and then disappear again. We are seeing with some new electric models where the lighting systems are multipurpose and you can actually get a visual representation of the battery charge state.

I would love to see more subtle lighting systems that blend in with the body rather than stand out. Concepts in recent years have played with that idea, some being BMW's, so if Audi knows whats good for them it'll be staying ahead of BMW.
