Volkswagen’s CrossBlue concept has been spotted in camo doing some testing. The vehicle is heavily covered up, but we can still pull some details away like the Passat like rear end in terms of design cues. The new and larger SUV from Volkswagen may be using the 3.6L V6 found in the Passat and will incorporate 4Motion all wheel drive. Volkswagen may also choose to put their 2.0L turbo four cylinder into the SUV. However, that may be a fairly undersized engine given the platform size of the vehicle. And speaking of platform size, the new SUV will give occupants 3 rows of seating.

Volkswagen is also planning to have the CrossBlue be built on top of their all new MQB platform which allows it to share most of it’s parts with the Golf lineup. This certainly will help in cost management. However, that doesn’t mean those production costs will translate into customer savings as the SUV is still predicted to start somewhere around the $50,000 USD range.

Look for this new Volkswagen to hit showrooms around late 2017.
