The car will be positioned as a premium model and in fitting with that image will be packed with plenty of luxury extras not normally found in VW’s lineup. Developers will be adding items such as a multimedia player, generous arm rests and air-conditioning outlets front and back, as well as optional features including heated and electrically adjustably seats, a panoramic glass roof, a radar-controlled braking system and a touchscreen LCD interface for a DVD and MP3 player and satnav.
The engine lineup will start with a 160hp 1.8L TFSI and top out with the 300hp 3.6L V6 engine from the Passat R36. A new 230hp FSI engine will also feature and will be shared with the next-gen Golf GTI. Diesel fans will be able to opt from a 140hp base engine or a 204hp unit that was unveiled in Audi’s Cross Coupe concept. Click here to see a rendered version of the new car in our previous story.
