Volkswagen Teases Small SUV Concept Ahead of Geneva Debut
23 Février 2016 - Autoblog
With very little to go on other than some marketing buzzwords – trendy! affordable! realistic! – we can't tell you all that much about the small SUV concept that Volkswagen will debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show.
Judging from the few teaser images so far released, and the fact that the German automaker promises a future production version, we'd wager this is likely a crossover rather than a traditional SUV. It's probably slightly smaller than the current Tiguan.
We know the concept will feature an interior mostly devoid of buttons and switches, "creating a conceptual bridge to the BUDD-e" from CES. A Beats audio system is also on the menu, likely with around 300 Watts of power and the appropriate Dr. Dre-approved badging. Past that, we're just guessing. We wouldn't expect a diesel engine, but some sort of hybrid powertrain is certainly possible.
Take a look at the teasers in the gallery above for more. You'll see some interesting lighting signatures, along with thin horizontal grilles above and below in a detailed geometric pattern. And finally, you'll note that it's a fun shade of yellow.
