Well, look what we have here! One of those cool little auto body design details I was lamenting had become extinct. Moreover, it has an uncanny similarity to my suggestion for the Ford F150. While I doubt I had any influence on the brilliant team in Wolfsburg, the similarity in concept is striking. There is one major difference however. The logo conceals the rear camera which activates while the vehicle is in reverse, not the latch handle like I had suggested for the truck.
Pretty cool. Another nifty little detail is in that body crease you see on either side of the logo/camera cutout, but I’ll let you research that one yourself.
