The latest craze among automakers worldwide are four-door coupes and Volkswagen is the latest one to join in on the fun. The New Midsize Coupe concept from Volkswagen took a straight-on approach for its name, and gives a look at a model that would be positioned below the Passat in the German automaker’s lineup.

Under the hood of the New Midsize Coupe concept is a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine with 217 hp and mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Targetting the Chinese market was the New Midsize Coupe’s interior, sporting Silk and Ebony Black seats with Dragon Red piping.

It isn’t yet clear if VW intends to offer this new model in other markets and if so, how it would compare to the coupe-styled CC.
