Following the official images released last week, today, on the eve of the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show Volkswagen officially unveiled the new Passat Alltrack and its new Cross Coupe SUV Concept.
On the styling front, as expected, the VW Alltrack has plastic body cladding, matte chrome accents, stainless steel-look front and rear underbody protection panels, an increased ride height and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Under the hood, four engines are available. The petrol variants are rated at 160 PS (118 kW/158 hp) and 210 PS (155 kW/208 hp), while the diesels produce 140 PS (103 kW/138 hp) and 170 PS (125 kW/168 hp).
A high level of standard equipment will include Alcantara upholstery, dual-zone air-con, cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring, iPod connectivity, Bluetooth and 18-inch alloy wheels.
According to the Volkswagen of America spokesman Mark Gillies, who talked with insideline.com, the European VW Alltrack won’t arrive in the United States and the company has no plans to sell it on the over-seas auto market. [read more about VW Passat Alltrack]
On the same time, the Cross Coupe is looking to change the way we view SUVs in the future, or at least that is what VW want’s.
Power is from three sources: a 148bhp 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine, a 54bhp electric motor on the front axle and a 114bhp electric motor on the rear axle. This last motor is only used when the Cross Coupé is running in its pure electric City or all-wheel-drive Offroad modes. [complete details about VW Cross Coupe]
