Top 10 Cars of the 2012 Paris Motor Show

8. Audi Crosslane Coupe

Previewing new technology, design and a possible new product from the German automaker, the Crosslane Concept is a unique new package from Audi.

Using a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder mated to a plug-in hybrid system it makes 177-hp and Audi claims an astounding 214 mpg. Of note, the small crossover can be operated in pure electric mode or hybrid mode at the push of a button. To help keep weight to a minimum (3,064 lbs) , Audi designed a unique chassis made of both aluminum and carbon fiber.

Previewing styling for Audi’s future crossovers and SUVs with a unique new grille, there’s also a chance Audi will bring a sub-compact crossover of this size to market to slot in below the Q3, which is currently only offered in Europe but which will arrive in the US soon.
