Volkswagen’s New Midsize Coupe Concept Shown in Beijing

New Midsize Coupe Concept 5

Volkswagen showcased its four-door coupe concept at the Beijing Motor Show -  the New Midsize Coupe (NMC) concept which hints at a sleeker new Jetta possibly coming from the company soon.

Engine specifications

The New Midsize Coupe Concept is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder TSI engine producing 162 kW of power which is transferred to the wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox. This enables the coupe to do the 0-100 km/h sprint in 6.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 244 km/h. Fuel consumption is rated at 6.4 litres / 100 km.

Sporty looks inside and out

The concept benefits from a sleek profile with a drag coefficient of 0.29, as well as 20-inch wheels shod in low profile tyres and a body covered in Dragon Red paint. There is also a new LED headlight design which is integrated as part of the grille. The taillights feature aluminium accents and below these is an integrated rear diffuser that houses square-shaped exhaust tips.

In addition, the New Midsize Coupe offers enough cabin space for five people and a cargo capacity of 500 litres. The inner surfaces of the seats are designed in a bright "Silk" colour, while the outer areas form a contrast in the dark "Ebony Black". The controls, including the multifunction sports steering wheel and the infotainment system have been adapted from the current Golf.

No details have been provided as yet about a potential production version.
