New Volkswagen CrossBlue 6/7-Seater SUV Concept in More Detail [Updated]
JANUARY 14, 2013
A fresh set of images and additional details, including the name of VW's new Detroit motor show-bound CrossBlue SUV Concept, surfaced on the internet today.
Volkswagen developed the CrossBlue specifically for the U.S. and Canada to preview an upcoming model designed to slot between the smaller Tiguan and the more luxurious and pricier Touareg SUVs.
The study was built around Volkswagen's new Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) and measures 196.3 inches (4,986mm) long, 79.3 inches (2,014mm) wide, and 68.2 inches (1,732mm) high. It aims to compete with SUVs like the latest generation Ford Explorer.
While the concept features six individual seats in three rows (2+2+2), the German company says the production model would offer the option of a seven-seat layout with a three-seat bench in the middle row.
