The CrossBlue concept was first seen at NAIAS 2013 and previews an upcoming seven seat-er sports utility vehicle.
Volkswagen has now announced that the upcoming sports utility vehicle will enter series production in 2016 and the production model will look close to the concept model. The Volkswagen CrossBlue will be based on carmaker’s MQB platform and hence, we can expect it to come with a range of engine options. It is pretty much for sure that US will get at least two four-cylinder diesel engines.
It has emerged that the production spec CrossBlue is currently in engineering and development stages and don’t be surprised if a plug-in hybrid system, which will debut in the Golf, makes it to the production spec CrossBlue.
