This bizarre meeting of SUV and sports car is VW’s four-wheel-drive attempt to grab the headlines at this week’s Detroit Motor Show. Powered by the Golf R32’s 240bhp V6 mated to the 4Motion system, the Concept T will hit 62mph in 6.9 seconds and is limited to 143mph.

Rear seats can be inserted at the expense of both luggage space and the spare wheel, and the concept is shorter and lower than the new Mk5 Golf.

The T-bar roof consists of two panels that can be lifted out, while the rear hard-top section is also removable, giving two convertible options.

Technology in the cabin includes head-up display and Personal Mobility Gateway, a system that enables in-car use of internet and e-mail, as well as operating the phone, satellite navigation system and MP3 player.
