A Concept of the Future

This year’s Frankfurt Auto Show will finally debut the highly anticipated Volkswagen “Concept A” mini SUV. It’s production is scheduled for a 2008 rollout competing against the BMW X3.

The Concept A is motivated by the 1.4 liter direct injection Twin Charger engine from the Golf GT. Among its dynamic features are opposing opening wind doors, 20-inch wheels, 4Motion all-drive system coupled with VW’s DSG transmission and of course the VW braking system. One of the central aspects of its ingenious design is the combination of a sports car aesthetics with SUV elements. Certainly this a brainchild of a new era in Volkswagen. A glimpse into the future.
