Default The VW Cross Blue. EDIT: Named Atlas!

Ever since it was launched at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show it has caught my attention because of its large yet compact proportions & a simplistic yet futuristic design.

Launch Video;



The Cross Blue is built on the same Octavia MQB platform.

The Cross Blue draws power from a 190 bhp TDI diesel engine and two electric motors with 54hp and 114hp which are in turn powered by a 9.8 KWh Li-ion battery pack in the center tunnel.

A 6-speed DSG propels the car from 0-100 km/h in 7.2 seconds.

Fuel Economy Claimed - 47.3 km/l

Positioning : Between the Taigun compact crossover and Touareg in the Volkswagen line-up.


^ This means it may be lauched in the 40 - 45L segment (for that price this is like Q7 size and Q5 money)

IMHO this car has tremendous potential if launched in that price range


Indian Connection;

VW has confirmed that a new crossover concept will be revealed at the 2014 Detroit motor show. However, they did not disclose any additional details. A recent report suggests that the concept will be a 5-seater rendition of the 7-seater CrossBlue concept which was revealed at the show last year.

VW’s three-row crossover is only for the North American market – at least at first. It shares the MQB platform with many other VW Group products, which means a transverse engine up front. The most likely powerplant is the 3.6-liter V6 from the U.S Passat with 280 horsepower, and 4Motion all-wheel drive would be option – possibly even standard equipment. There are also rumors of the brand’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in the powertrain lineup and perhaps even a hybrid later
