Volkswagen has released a set of design sketches that preview a midsize four-door coupé concept car set to be unveiled at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show.


Designed by the team led by head designer Klaus Bischoff, the new show car has distinctive proportions, with low height (1,422 mm), a wide stance (1,838 mm) and a relatively limited length (4,596 mm), which makes it shorter than both the Passat and the Jetta.

The exterior features a low visual center of gravity, short overhangs, muscular shoulders and side sections, a dynamic roof line with markedly swept-back C-pillars, a short trunk lid and long hood, while the sporty look is enhanced by the 20-inch wheels with 245/40 tires.

The Concept is powered by a 220 hp four-cylinder TSI engine, that allows it to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 6.5 seconds, with a top speed of 152 mph.
