Volkswagen reveals Cross Coupé concept

Volkswagen has unveiled its striking Cross Coupé concept ahead of its official début at next month’s Tokyo Motor Show.

The plug-in hybrid SUV sits on the company’s brand new modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform and features a turbocharged TSI petrol engine under its hood that develops 110 kW (148 hp) and 210 Nm (155 lb-ft) of torque, along with an electric motor that produces 54 hp (40 kW) and 180 Nm (133 lb-ft). Thanks to its 9.8 kWh lithium-ion battery the Cross Coupé can cover a range of around 40 kilometres (25 miles) running on pure electric power. If the all-wheel-drive system is in use, a second motor generating 114 hp (85 kW) and 70 Nm (199 lb-ft) sends power to the rear axle.

Dimensionally, the Cross Coupé sits perfectly between the Golf and Tiguan with a width of 1,868 mm and height of 1,523 mm, yet its 2,630 mm wheelbase is longer than both these models, providing extra stability on the road and more room for occupants inside.

Looking like a tiguan on steroids, the Cross Coupé sits on 20-inch alloy wheels shrouded in purposeful fender flares, while its face is dominated by those twin bi-xenon headlamps which merge into the chrome-finned the radiator grille. The rear features a steeply raked window complimented by a roof spoiler, while further down there’s a pair of low profile rear light clusters and twin exhaust tailpipes integrated within the bumper.
