VW Cross Coupe GTE Concept

I think this is so right, and so wrong at the same time.

I do think it looks really good. Basically a 5 seat version of the CrossBlue Concept. But a bit more modern and aggressive.

What's wrong? The name for one. A 5 seat version of a 7 seat SUV is NOT a coupe!
And, it is yet another SUV concept from VW.
They don't need more concepts, they need production models!

The original CrossBlue concept was introduced 2 years ago! Not that futuristic to begin with, it is still NOT in production.
Two years later all they have is another concept.
What is wrong with these people???

Just what we need; ANOTHER 5-seat cuv. Reminds me of when Chrysler brought out the body-on-frame RWD v8 Aspen SUV just when everybody else came out with FWD-based v6 unibody cuvs! Late to the party vw--by about 5 years!

Are oil leaks and electrical problems after 40k miles optional or standard?

I think the entire CUV "coupe" idea is ridiculous. I guess it will continue to expand if people continue to accept/buy them though. Whatever.

VW always produces aggressive concepts, then produces the same derivative SUV designs. I don't even know why anyone bothers anymore. This particular design is fine. But it's essentially a small SUV designed with a ruler. Not all that interesting given that there's not a chance that it'll ever be produced.
