Geneva: Volkswagen Cross Coupe Concept revealed image

The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently revealed the Cross Coupe Concept during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

After being previewed just a couple of days ago, the new Volkswagen Cross Coupe Concept has been finally presented to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, where the car manufacturer had the opportunity to reveal more details on it. The VW Cross Coupe Concept has been developed on the new MQB (Modular Transverse Matrix) platform, the same one which underpins models like the new Audi A3 or the upcoming VW Golf, proving once again its versatility.

The most important part of VW’s new creation is definitely under the hood, where the Cross Coupe Concept is being powered by a 2.0 liter direct injected turbo diesel engine (TDI) which is being “helped” on the way by two electric motors, which are offering a total output of 302 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque. The hybrid powertrain is allowing the Cross Coupe to burn just 1.8 liters of fuel every 100 km while emitting 46 g/km of CO2 (130 mpg US / 156 mpg UK). The model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph). There is no official word yet on whether the Cross Coupe will catch the production line, but the powertrain will most likely make its way onto other models.
