Volkswagen will be giving the public a glimpse of the VW CrossBlue Coupe Concept at the 2012 Shanghai Auto show. This car is supposed to be the car design for the future, especially when it comes to SUVs. Klaus Bischoff, the Head of Design for VW claims that the demand for SUVs has grown a disproportionate amount over the last few years, which has given VW the opportunity to implement a lot of diversification of models and designs as well. The CrossBlue Coupe is a quintessential VW car. This is a concept car that will certainly have a large impact on the future SUV models that are made, based on the same.

The CrossBlue is very rugged in its appearance It is very sporty, yet elegant. The sculpted lines on the car do not just serve as an aerodynamic feature. They are incredibly elegant as well. The car is powered by a hybrid system that is powerful, and fuel efficient as well. The car provides for amazing performance but it does not guzzle fuel, unlike many other SUVs. The car comes with a V6 Turbo Direct Petrol Injection Engine. The engine works with two electric motors and is capable of delivering 415 PS of power. The full power of the car can be utilized without an issue at all- in fact, the moment the full power of the engine is used, the car just becomes a sports car. The car is capable of accelerating from 0-100 kmph in just 5.9 seconds. The maximum speed of the car is 236 kmph. Even though it has such a powerful engine, the fuel consumption of the car is quite low. It just consumes 3.0 l per 100 km. The car can be driven in the all electric mode as well- if it is driven in an all-electric mode, there will be 0 emissions.

The VW CrossBlue Coupe is beautifully designed. The car has a low, wide profile that gives it an extended appearance The car has large track width as well, which makes the car look really sporty. The car’s roof line and the short front overhang are also very noticeable. There are a lot of other design features that are worth noting, including a low profile A- pillar, swept back C- pillar, dominant character lines, chrome plated front grille, chrome air outlet, etc. The radiator grille trim in the front is worth noting as well. In the front and the rear end of the car, LED lights have been used, in order to make the car look more 3D. This also makes the lights on the car look sophisticated and highly functional. The rear portion of the car is dominated by the prominent tailpipes (stainless steel pipes), steel coloured wheel arch trim, etc.

The interior of the car is high-tech. The horizontal dashboard is large and provides a lot of storage space and a place to put the instrument panel. The velvety smooth Napa leather has been used for the car. The leather has been used in two tones- Aspahlto and Anthracite Pearl. The surfaces have also been polished in chrome. The cross panel contains the air vents along with the central info display. There is a delicate chrome strip in the middle of the cross panel as well. There is a sharp contrast of light and dark used in the interiors of the car. The car has all the general features- including air conditioning and heater. It also has an infotainment centre that is controlled by touchscreen. The instrument cluster is completely programmable as well. There are spaces to store one’s gadgets as well and the gadgets can be integrated with the car as well (phones and iPods can be used to play music or even or GPS purposes).
