Volkswagen shows off its new Midsize Coupe at the Beijing Auto Show. It is VW's second car of the same style and size and is based on the modular MQB platform.
At 4,597 mm (181 inches) long, 1,422 mm (56 inches) tall and 1,838 mm (72.4 inches) wide, the Midsize Coupé is wider than a Passat but shorter than a Jetta, and overall, roughly the same size as the Mercedes-Benz CLA.
VW says: "[Midsize] 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."
Power for the concept comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol rated for 217hp (220PS) linked to a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (VW got it right this time), with the manufacturer claiming a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 6.5 seconds, a top speed of 244km/h (152mph) and a fuel consumption of 6.4 l/100 km (36.8 mpg US or 44.1 mpg UK).
