The New Midsize Coupé Concept is said to be "a four-door coupe the like of which has never been seen before in this vehicle class".
Measuring 1422mm high, 4597mm long and 1838mm wide, the concept sits low with short overhangs at either end and an overall muscular appearance. Its short boot lid and long bonnet emphasises its size, however VW says the concept is shorter than the current Passat and Jetta, although it is wider than either. The concept sits on 20-inch wheels.
The concept's design team has been lead by VW design chief Klaus Bischoff, whose credits include the VW Up city car.
Power for the New Midsize Coupé Concept comes from a 217bhp four-cylinder TSI engine, which VW says allows it to sprint to 62mph in 6.5 seconds with a top speed of 152mph.
Volkswagen is also planning to show a new 395bhp Golf R 400 concept in Beijing.
