Next month at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Volkswagen will unveil a new five-seat concept crossover, which previews a new model that will arrive by 2016. According to Reuters the new concept previews the five-seat version of the seven-passenger SUV that the German manufacturer aims to build at its Tennessee plant located in the United States.

Moreover, the new concept is the latest part of Volkswagen’s plan to bring more SUVs in the United States, besides the Tiguan and Touareg. Although there is nothing official, we believe that the design of Volkswagen’s new concept will be inspired by the CrossBlue Concept that was unveiled back in 2013 at the Detroit Auto Show.

The CrossBlue Concept was based on the new Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) components and used a 190 hp TDI Clean Diesel engine, bolted to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. In addition, the CrossBlue used a 54 hp front and 114 hp rear electric motors rear electric motors.

The total output delivered by the hybrid system was 305 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, which enabled the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 7.2 seconds.
