The car’s lines were penned by VW Group’s Walter de’Silva and include a toned down front grille, the carmaker’s new trademark bumper with three air intakes, and LED daytime running lights. 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. At the end of 2008, a new 200hp FSI engine will arrive, which will also be used in the new 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.
Inside, there will be seating for only four with the center console stretching across the length of the cabin. Headroom up back will be limited but, in compensation, developers will be adding several luxury items such as a second multimedia player, generous arm rests and air-conditioning outlets. Other optional features will include heated and electrically adjustably seats, a panoramic glass roof, a radar-controlled braking system and a touchscreen LCD interface for the DVD and MP3 player and satnav.
