Default Preview: 2009 Volkswagen four-door coupe




Engineers at VW are close to finishing up development work on a new four-door coupe, expected to make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March next year. Heavily camouflaged prototypes have been spotted recently testing in Californiaís Death Valley and these latest renderings are a good indication as to what to expect for the final version.


The new model is being designed by VW Groupís Walter deíSilva and as these renderings suggest will feature a similar headlight shape as the Tiguan, a toned down grille and the carmakerís new trademark bumper with three air intakes and integrated 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. 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 Audiís 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. Pricing should start around the $35,000 figure.

Well considering the definition of coupe for cars has less to do with door and more to do with rear passenger room, I see it as completely valid.
