Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe

Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe
Volkswagen has debuted its new CrossBlue Coupe Concept at Auto China in Shanghai today.

Essentially a sportier version of the CrossBlue Concept, this five-door Coupe variant retains the Group’s MQB platform, is slightly shorter at 4,889 mm in length, but similar in width and height at 2,015 mm and 1,673 mm respectively.

Again a plug-in hybrid, the CrossBlue Coupe uses a turbocharged V6 TSI unit mated to a six-speed DSG transmission, which is backed up by a 40 kW (54 hp) unit on the front axle and one rated at 85 kW (114 hp) on the rear. Their energy comes via a tunnel-mounted 9.9 kWh lithium-ion battery module. With a total power output of 305 kW (227 hp) 100 km/h appears in a mere 5.9 seconds, while maximum speed is 236 km/h.

An impressive combined fuel consumption of just 3.0 l/100 km is achievable, with that figure rising to 6.9 l/100 km when propelled by the engine alone, meaning a range of around 1,190 kilometres can be covered – on one (80 litre tank). A distance of 33 kilometres can be covered in electric-only mode, with top speed a very respectable 120 km/h.

Looking much sleeker and more aggressive than its larger brother, the CrossBlue Coupe wears 22-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting, a bold aluminium grille, large air intakes, a ventilated hood, chrome sill trims, anthracite wheel arch trims, a large roof spoiler and aluminium lower panel with twin trapezoidal tailpipes. Moving inside the Nappa leather-trimmed cabin, there’s a programmable 12.3-inch instrument cluster, a 10.1 inch infotainment touchscreen integrated into the centre console and a pair of iPad minis on the rear of the front headrests.
