VW’s CrossBlue Coupe leaked

19 April, 2013 | by Benedict Pather

Picking up pace on the Internet highway are images of the Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe concept, leaked ahead of its official unveiling at the 2013 Shanghai motor show. VW’s counter to the Mercedes-Benz GLA Concept  – which made its cyberspace debut earlier this week.

The latest offering follows in the footsteps of the three-row CrossBlue concept which was showcased at the Detroit auto show earlier this year. Remember the lavish looking seven-seater that resembled a giant smurf?

The sportier looking Coupe however, seems to have ditched a few seats and is adorned with upgraded trim such as LED headlights, a slender grille as well as a ventilated hood.

Reports suggest that the engine will be a turbocharged V6 paired with two electrical motors. Pushing out 309kW and doing 0 – 100kph in 5.9 seconds. It’s also able to travel up to 33 km on electricity alone.

What are your thoughts on this German Coupe, could it be a possible contender for BMW’s x6? More information on the CrossBlue will follow shortly. We’ll also be updating you on all the Shanghai shenanigans, and cars that go with it, soon.
