One of Volkswagen’s newest concept cars is jumping on the four-door coupe bandwagon.
The idea of a “four-door coupe” is becoming increasingly popular and now Volkswagen is using the term for its New Midsize Coupe concept. The New Midsize Coupe gives a look at how Volkswagen Design envisions a sport sedan model positioned below the Passat and combines the worlds of sedans and sports cars. The concept itself is wider than the Passat, but is shorter than the Jetta with plenty of space for five people.
Residing under the hood of the concept is a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 217 hp, allowing the New Midsize Coupe to accelerate to 62 mph in 6.5 seconds. The powerplant is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission while the interior features Silk and Ebony Black with Dragon Red piping – targetting the Chinese market. Lastly, the German automaker also noted that the concept shows off newly conceived LED headlights that could make their way to various Volkswagen models in the future.
