The Volkswagen ID Crozz is to be refreshed for the Frankfurt motor show, following its initial outing in Shanghai. 

The Volkswagen ID Crozz has now been revealed. Click here for full details

In addition to a new paint colour, the Crozz has been given more detailed LED headlights and a lower light bar akin to that on the not-dissimilar Skoda Vision E concept

The new lights replace the more animated eye-like lights that have featured on every ID concept so far. This is a more production-ready Crozz, according to Volkswagen.

There’s now a black roof, as well as tweaks to the bonnet and front wings. The wheels are different to those shown on the Crozz at the Shanghai motor show, as is the rear, as can be seen in the latest preview video Volkswagen revealed ahead of the car's Frankfurt appearance. 

The development of the Crozz has run a similar course to that of the Skoda Vision E, which has also been tweaked ahead of a second motor show appearance at Frankfurt. Both cars were originally revealed at Shanghai and are slated for production at the end of the decade. 

The Skoda Vision E and the updated Crozz both have a 302bhp, 83kWh battery pack, a 0-62mph time of 6.0sec and a range of around 310 miles (500km).

Seat Leon 5dr hatch

Seat's third-generation Leon is attractive and capable, but it can't quite reach the benchmark set by the imperious Volkswagen Golf

I'll wait for the EV Microbus thanks. I've been waiting for that fekker since 2001.
