2014 Volkswagen Midsize Coupe Concept

1

It‘s a four-door coupe the like of which has never been seen before in this vehicle class: the New Midsize Coupe concept car. Volkswagen has brought the concept car to Beijing for its world premiere at Auto China 2014. The New part goes without saying: the New Midsize Coupe is as new as a new car can be. Coupe is also unambiguous: the New Midsize Coupe is low in height (1,422 mm) and very wide (1,838 mm), it has a low visual centre of gravity, short overhangs, muscular shoulders and side sections, a dynamic roof line with markedly swept-back C-pillars, a short boot lid and long bonnet.

Midsize is less obvious. It is normally the term for a car of the Passat class. However, the concept car is just 4,597 mm long and thus shorter than a Passat and shorter even than the Jetta. However, as mentioned the concept car outdoes the other two in terms of its width – and it is thus midsized. So clearly this concept car exhibits proportions of an extremely sporty nature. The team led by Volkswagen head designer Klaus Bischoff integrated these sharp proportions in a body design that makes the New Midsize Coupe a powerful and avant-garde proponent of a new, compact saloon class.
