 volkswagen-crossblue-based-suv.jpg

Volkswagen Crossblue SUV undisguised have been leaked online. The seven-seater is based on the Crossblue concept of 2013, and these latest leaked images suggest the final model will stay true to that car’s design. When launched, the production car will slot between the Tiguan and Touareg in Volkswagen’s growing international SUV line-up.

Its design has evolved from the large SUV look first seen on the new Tiguan and due to be integrated onto the exterior of the 2017 Touareg. However, the Crossblue does get its own distinct features as well, which include a muscular bonnet and squared-off wheel arches, giving it a more rugged appearance.

The 2013 Crossblue concept had a 190hp 2.0-litre diesel engine supported by two electric motors – a 55hp one sited next to the combustion engine at the front, and a 116hp one mounted at the rear. Together, the three power sources provided a combined power of around 306hp, with a peak torque figure of 699.60Nm. Energy for the electric motors was supplied by a 9.8kWh lithium-ion battery, which was mounted in the floor of the cargo area.

A hybrid drivetrain resembling this is unsurprisingly expected to be included in the Crossblue’s engine line-up, alongside more conventional turbocharged four-cylinder diesel and petrol engines. One of the leaked images of the SUV’s rear shows a ‘V6′ badge, possibly indicating that a turbocharged V6 engine could be offered in certain markets as well.

As standard, the Crossblue production model will be front-driven, with four-wheel drive available as an option. It could be standard on the most powerful models. Volkswagen hasn’t revealed when the Crossblue will go into production, but it is expected to make its debut at the 2017 Detroit motor show.

A sportier Crossblue Coupe, as previewed by Volkswagen’s Shanghai 2013 concept, could be produced in the future. Below the Touareg, Crossblue and Tiguan, the carmaker will also add production versions of its T-Cross and T-Roc concepts to the range. These compact SUV models will get their own, more ‘urban’ look.

Hyundai has released the first set of pictures of the updated i10 hatchback that’ll be sold in international markets. The current-gen model is available as the Grand i10 in India but with a few changes and more interior room. The updated i10 will make its public debut at the 2016 Paris motor show.

Styling updates on the refreshed i10 are predominantly on the front end, with the front grille now being wider, similar to the one seen on recent Hyundai models like the Elantra. The updated i10 gets unique round LED daytime running lights in addition to fog lamps on the lower end of the bumper.

Moving to the rear, there’s a larger black insert with reflectors on the bumper.

India-bound Skoda Kodiaq

 So here are 5 things you need to know about the upcoming Skoda Kodiaq SUV.

1. It’s Skoda’s first ever seven-seat vehicle

Skoda has done SUVs before, as we’ve seen with the Yeti, but Skoda has never done a seven-seater before. This will be the first one in the company’s 120-plus-year history and that’s a big moment for the Czech brand. It’s named after an Alaskan bear, the Kodiak, and fittingly, it looks quite rugged. But Skoda says it’s not an all-out off-roader, but rather a family car that can traverse rough terrain.

2. It is based on the Skoda Superb

No wonder then, that it’s based on the VW Group’s MQB platform that also underpins the Skoda Superb and Octavia in different guises. It is stretched and raised for its duties as a seven-seat SUV, and top-spec versions get the latest version of the VW Group’s transverse-engine AWD system, supplied by Haldex/BorgWarner, though front-wheel-drive is what you get on lower versions.

 

3. It will use 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines

 

International markets will get a 1.4-litre TSI petrol motor that makes 125hp, but this is unlikely to come to India. What we will get is a 2.0-litre TDI diesel that produces either 150hp or 190hp (and 340 and 400Nm respectively) which will be allied to either a six-speed manual or a DSG dual-clutch automatic. There’s also the likelihood of the company’s new 2.0-litre TSI petrol, which produces 180hp and 320Nm, but we’ll have to wait and see.

 

4. The exterior looks really good

Skoda’s head of design Jozef Kaba? has really nailed it with the Kodiaq’s exterior. It manages to look imposing enough thanks to its aggressive grille and headlamp treatment, large wheel arches and hefty stance, but also somewhat sporty with a gently tapering roof line and optional 20-inch wheels. It borrows a lot of cues from the Skoda Superb, including a thick shoulder line, heavy sculpting on the boot, and intricate, angular LED headlamps and tail-lamps inspired by Czech crystal. We particularly like the way the LED fog lamps sit in angular recesses just below the headlamps.

5. It’s relatively compact for a seven-seat SUV

It may look imposing at first glance, but look a bit longer and you’ll soon realise that’s all down to clever styling cues; it’s not really that big. With a length of 4,697mm, width of 1,882mm and a wheelbase of 2.7m (the base, 2WD petrol version also weighs just 1,550kg) it’s actually relatively compact, and that’s something Skoda is proud of, because that should make it easier to live with as a family car. It gets 190mm of ground clearance and can wade through 300mm of water, which again, is not proper off-roader stuff, but will suffice for most.
