Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe concept leaked

by on Apr.19, 2013, under Auto Review Specs

Several new pictures of the Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe concept have surfaced online, following a leak earlier today.

Looking like Volkswagen-ified Evoque, the CrossBlue Coupe is a five-door crossover that has a sporty front fascia with a slender grille and LED headlights. Moving further back we can see a ventilated hood, plastic body cladding and matte aluminum trim. Last but not least, the model is equipped with a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a dual exhaust system that is integrated into the rear bumper.

The cabin echoes the original CrossBlue concept and adopts a restrained design with flat and angular surfaces. Notable highlights include leather seats, metallic trim and gloss black accents. There’s also a digital instrument cluster, an infotainment system and a rear seat entertainment system.

Power will reportedly be provided by a turbocharged V6 engine which is backed up by two electric motors. This setup could enable the crossover to have a combined maximum output of 415 bhp (309 kW). This should allow the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds, average 3L/100 km (78.4 mpg US / 94.1 mpg UK) and travel up to 20.5 miles (33 km) on electricity alone.

New Volkswagen Golf R Cabriolet

New Volkswagen Golf R Cabriolet

Volkswagen is sending off the sixth generation of its Golf series with a powerful bang in the form of the new Golf R Cabriolet that was officially revealed

today after many months of teasing.

At the heart of the first-ever open-top “R” badged model and simultaneously, the fastest-ever production Golf Cabriolet in the history of the series, beats the same 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four petrol as found in the Golf R hatch, albeit slightly de-tuned at 261hp (265PS).

Unlike the tin-top model, though, the Golf R Cabriolet ditches the Haldex 4motion all-wheel drive system with power transmitted to the front wheels alone via a standard six-speed DSG gearbox.

VW quotes an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250km/h), and a 0-62 mph (100km/h) sprint in 6.4 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds less than what it had said it would do during the presentation of the pre-production concept at the 2011 Wörthersee GTI meet.

The cloth-top model sports the same styling kit as the hatch , with bespoke front and rear bumpers, LED daytime running lights, bi-xenon headlights with black housings, gloss-black door mirror casings and black-painted brake callipers with R logo.

The side sill extensions, a gloss black rear diffuser framed by chrome-tipped exhausts on either side, smoked LED tail lights, a 25mm lowered body and 18- or optionally, 19-inch alloy wheels complete the more aggressive exterior look.

Inside, the interior features four individual sports seats in ‘Vienna Cool Leather’ and ‘R’ logos in the head restraints, along with a flat-bottom steering

wheel and aluminum trims.

As with any other Golf Cabriolet, the fabric hood is operated by a switch in the center console, and can be lowered in 9.5 seconds at speeds of up to 18 mph (29km/h) and raised in 11.0 seconds.
