Volkswagen’s New Midsized Coupe Concept has made its presence felt at the ongoing 2014 Beijing Motor Show. Riding on an MQB-B Platform, VW has designed the concept to comfortably seat upto five adults and with a boot space to hold upto 500 liters of luggage.

Volkswagen-Midsized-Coupe-Concept-1-front-quarter-headlights-grille-and-bumperMeasuring 4,597 mm in length, 1,838 mm in width and 1,422 mm in height, the new Midsized Coupe Concept is positioned just above the Vento, while it is shorter than a Passat or Jetta. It receives 20” wheels shod in 245 low profile tyres while exteriors are painted a brilliant Dragon Red which is sure to endear the concept to Chinese buyers.

Volkswagen’s New Midsize Coupe receives 3D LED headlights and taillights with aluminum accents positioned high above twin exhaust pipes split by a high gloss black diffuser. The Concept possesses a long hood and short decklid. No interior details are evident but VW claims that it is sporty and spacious.

The company claims that the new Coupe is also highly fuel efficient allowing 36.7 mpg or 15.625 kmpl or 6.4 liters per 100 km.
