    It sure looks a lot smarter than the MK8 Golf.

    But still the stupid touchscreen thing...

    Many similar comments from Octavia III owners, for example - I come behind a smelly diesel truck and want to switch the A/C to recirc mode? On the Octavia III you just press 1 button, but on the Octavia IV you have to work through the touchscreen menus to find the Recirc soft key (while driving along...).

    Seems VAG have gone for style over function

    BMW said it would pay a penalty amounting to €28m.
    Daimler will have to pay €23.5m
    Volkswagen ... declined to comment on the amount it would pay but welcomed the end of the cartel probe.
    So if the total is €100m, VAG's share is less than €50m. That's pocket change to them.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    If you read the last paragraph it appears that there is an ongoing investigation by the EU in German car manufacturers colluding on emission technologies. I think their bank balance is going to take a bigger hit than 50millon
