Volkswagen will present a new cross-coupe under the intriguing name SUV Coupe Concept at the Shanghai International Auto Show. A potential competitor to the BMW X4 was noticed by the spies of the Chinese edition of Bitauto during the preparation of the booth of the German manufacturer.
According to eyewitnesses, the status of the concept in this case should not be embarrassing – the design of the car is almost serial. At least, this is indicated by strict “family” traits and the alignment of the lines inherent to the Germans.
Based on the dimensions of the crossover, we can assume that in the model range of the brand it will take place a step below the Volkswagen Tayron, and a relatively affordable price tag will help it “kill” the sales of the more expensive and premium BMW X4.
According to Chinese colleagues, under the hood, the SUV Coupe Concept is equipped with a 2.0-liter TSI turbo engine with a power of 186 or 220 hp, paired with a 7-speed DSG “robot”.
By the way, the prices for the Volkswagen Tayron, about which we wrote above, will start in China from 188,800 yuan (about 1.8 million rubles), which is almost two times cheaper than the "Bavarian" BMW X3 and X4.
