Volkswagen Cross Coupe Concept

Last year at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, German carmaker Volkswagen revealed the Cross Coupe Concept. Now, are they going to do the same at the Geneva Motor Show that will take place this year? Let?s see. The model presented this year gets a two tone red and silver exterior paint work, but the real difference is under the hood. The one revealed last year is powered by a plug-in petrol-electric hybrid system and this new one, by a turbo diesel four-cylinder unit with direct ingestion. This is not all. It also uses two electric motors, one at the front and the other at the back. Together with the TDI it has 1.8 liter/100 km fuel consumption in the new European Driving Cycle. Anyway, the model features an engine capable of delivering from 265 PS to 306 PS, power that enables the car to reach a top speed of 220 km/h.
