The production version of the CrossBlue Concept will likely be built on the new Passat platform, and it'll feature a flexible interior layout with sliding second-row seats and fold-flat third row seats. The concept integrated Apple iPad Minis into the back of the front seat headrests, a terrific idea to keep those kids busy during a long road trip.
The exterior styling uses Volkswagen's current design language with a two-bar grille and a squared-off front end.
The CrossBlue Concept features a diesel plug-in hybrid powertrain, although the production model will most likely use a conventional gasoline engine, and a TDI engine might be a possible option. We also wouldn't be surprised to see a gasoline hybrid model at some point. The powertrain in this concept uses a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine and a 40-kilowatt electric motor, which is sandwiched between the engine and the DSG dual-clutch transmission.
