These are photos from two new ‘MQB’ platform, VW-group C-segment products. One is supposed to be a spanish, fun brand. The other a German premium brand. But can you work out which car is which from this photo of the C-pillar, around the fuel filler door…? It leaves us asking the question: all conquering though VW is right now, isn’t there space for a little more bandwidth in the design language – particularly with brands like Seat and Skoda – which appear to be turning into clones of one another?
