    Not sure why but I love that interior. I could see the next Camaro interior looking a lot like this. Anybody know what's up with the two sand dollar looking circles on the console? Looks like cup holders should be there.. but these look too small

    Nice. But I'm sure if it makes production, it'll be watered down to a safe, boring VW design.

    I dunno, that looks pretty much production ready. It's got real door handles. The interior looks practical. It looks real, not show, to me.

    X2 give me a break. It seems that anytime a manufacturer loosens the reigns on the designers a little bit to let them stray away from a boring sedan they have to immediately proclaim it's a coupe. No it's not even close.

    It's not a coupe, and not blue. I guess it's 'cross' though. 1 outa 3.

    I wonder if you could sue VW on the description alone?

    Funny, I don't see one either.

    Ok, give us a 4-door coupe like the CC, but everything else needs to be called what it REALLY is.

    Next thing you know, every small crossover will be referred to as a 'shooting brake.'

    Is the blue referring it to being a diesel with blue additive and the cross as in a cross over? Does any car company still make sedans or has marketing put that description in the circular file.

    Spring loaded covers for the cup holder. Push them down and they stay, push on them when they are down and they come back up. Ok, I am only speculating, but I could be right!

    Interesting although it seems difficult to understand the category. Looks like a vehicle for driving AWD in the snow.

    Best looking VW in years. If this is VW's new design trend, they are going to be a real challenger to Toyota and GM for #1 World sales leader.
