Tokyo Motor Show 2011: VW reveals coupe crossover model

Volkswagen has revealed its Cross Coupe concept at the Tokyo Motor Show this week.

A production version of the Cross Coupe is expected to compete with the Range Rover Evoque and could be a possible Tiguan replacement.

VW product development chief Ulrich Hackenberg said: "We are looking at a new phase of VW SUVs. The Cross Coupé shows the future of SUV design at the company."

The Cross Coupé is powered by a petrol-electric hybrid system which can drive either the front wheels or all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

It uses VW's turbocharged 1.4-litre, four-cylinder direct-injection engine with a pair of brushless electric motors, one front-mounted that delivers 54bhp and a larger 114bhp motor at the rear.
