The interior of the Sport Coupé GTE gets a new full-length centre console and a series of digital displays and touchscreens. The car offers space for four passengers and has a boot capacity of 480 litres.

Featuring in the new concept is a plug-in hybrid system which Volkswagen wants to adopt in a series of its models in the future. It combines a 299hp turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine and two electric motors, one placed in each axle. Together they generate a combined output of 380hp coupled with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. With the petrol engine and front electric motor powering the front wheels and the rear electric motor powering the rear wheels the Sport Coupé GTE gets on-demand four-wheel drive capability.
