It's a concept. It's got four doors and yet it's a "coupe". And it's a glimpse at the future of VW's large sedans. The Volkswagen C Coupe GTE is a low-slung concept that's a potent mix of technology and luxury, with a 241hp hybrid system combining a turbocharged four-cylinder, an 8-speed automatic, and an electric engine. The interior packs multiple screens, including a 12.3-inch central touchscreen, two personal 4.5-inch touchscreens, and two 9.5-inch media screens, as well as wrap-around ambient lighting, a 600-watt Dynaudio sound system, and high-end touches like anthracite, Damascus steel trim, and inlaid wood panels.
A coupe. A wagon. And now an offroader. The Audi Prologue Allroad Concept is the third in a series of show cars pointing to the company's future. This rugged five-door is powered by a hybrid system that pairs a twin-turbo V8 with an electric motor for 734 hp and a 0-62 time of just 3.5 seconds, yet offers 98 mpg fuel economy. Other forward-looking features include a touch-screen instrument panel, an OLED center console display, LED rear lights, Matrix laser headlights, and a rear sound spoiler for improved audio, all wrapped in a sleek-yet-stout body that's raised to help it tackle any terrain.
We've seen STI-branded models in the states before, but never like this. Created to showcase the engineering and tuning prowess of Subaru Tecnica International, the Subaru STI Performance Concept offers a glimpse at the future of tuned Subarus in the US. It's powered by a racing engine developed by STI for the BRZ Super GT racecar, and also boasts suspension, chassis, and aerodynamic upgrades. While you'll like soon be able to buy those parts piecemeal in the near future, we're just waiting for it to culminate in something we can drive off the dealer's lot and directly to the track.
This isn't your grandpa's Continental. Sure, the Lincoln Continental Concept has some of the things you'd expect from the iconic luxury ride, like a sophisticated, clean exterior design with plenty of space and amenities inside. But with features like the Lincoln-exclusive 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost Engine, Lincoln Drive Control, a SmartGlass tinting sunroof, and unparalleled comfort and privacy — there's nothing old fashioned or stale about this car. And while it might just be a concept, you can expect this car, or at least a close copy of it, to make it to production as soon as next year.
