Volkswagen has been developing a new SUV concept and will be unveiled soon at the Beijing Auto Show. Leaked pictured showcases a futuristic design that the company says “moves luxury SUV design to a more sporty and elegant level.”

Word has it that this new concept SUV is actually a prequel to the all new Touareg. Volkswagen has been creating a host of concept vehicles, which are helping pave the way forward for their future designs. But with only two SUVs in their entire lineup, it’s really time that Volkswagen ups the ante and bring something special to the market as North American consumers are demanding SUVs.

The Touareg powertrain details has yet to be confirmed, but rumors is that it will be using a hybrid powerplant that will pump out approximate 376hp and 516lb/ft of torque. Volkswagen is teasing that the SUV will sprint to 100km/h in 6.0 seconds and will have a fuel economy of 78 miles per gallon.
