Even with its impressive performance, the CrossBlue Coupe has a manufacturer estimated combined fuel consumption of 70 mpg. In hybrid mode, it allows for a theoretical range of around 570 miles. It can be driven as a zero emissions EV for up to 13 miles at a maximum speed of 75 mph, with just a push of a button.

The concept vehicle is based off the new Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) and could, if it were produced, be fitted with conventional four and six-cylinder engines running on a variety of fuels such as gasoline, diesel, and CNG. Equipped with five comfortable seats and a spacious trunk, the CrossBlue Coupé definitely belongs to the SUV avant-garde.

The CrossBlue Coupé is exactly 192.5 inches long, 79.3 inches wide, and 66.1 inches high. The vehicle thus has a confident, low slung, and four-square stance that is enhanced by the wide tracks (67.3 inches at the front, 68.0 inches at the back), the relatively long 117.3-inch wheelbase, and large 22-inch aluminum-alloy wheels that are shod with 285/40 tires that were specially designed for the concept car.

The concept features a long and broad hood, a very short frontal overhang, and a long roofline. The concept’s sporty stance is further improved by a very short A-pillar and a very swept back C-pillar, as well as a distinctive character line. The designers have combined a dominant line—one that starts in the upper area of the rear lights and runs at the height of the door handles—with a second line that begins beneath the rear lights and ends in the front fender. The space between the two lines narrows towards the front and ends beneath the A-pillar in a stylized chrome air outlet. These lines significantly reduce the SUV’s visual center of gravity. The 22-inch polished aluminum-alloy wheels also feature a new design, with five V-shaped dual spokes that have a matte finish on their inner surfaces.

An especially prominent feature of the elegant and clean interior is a horizontal dashboard graphic that extends into the side door trims. The seats are also upholstered in elegant Nappa leather. The individual seat panels are designed in either the dark “Anthracite Pearl” or the contrasting “Asphalto”. As soon as the driver’s door is opened, the controls come to life. When the “Engine” (start) button is pressed, the switches for the climate control and headlights instantly lift from rest. At the same time, all of the display layouts appear on the monitors and the ambient lighting is activated. The central 10.1-inch touch screen has proximity sensors and is used to control all the infotainment and entertainment functions, as well as to access the status of the hybrid system
