Though the Detroit Auto Show brought us a new Volkswagen concept in form of the Cross Blue, I was more intrigued to see the Cross Coupe, again.

This concept has been around since 2011; however, it was revised in 2012 to the red version we see below.

The differentiating factor over the original is the TDI, plug-in hybrid powertrain. That means there is a diesel motor supported by two electric powerplants. High tech stuff.

But I wouldn't be telling the truth if I didn't say I am really captivated by how the Cross Coupe looks. That's because it's teutonic. While so many German vehicles have "gone soft" or embraced curves, this Cross Coupe is more of a testament to its utilitarian bredrin that came before it.

That said, I am a bit curious:

Do we NEED to see more teutonic designs like the below or are you happy with what is currently being produced by the German automakers?

Let us know in the comments below... is the number one site in the world for Auto Show photos.

With other sites you're a spectator but with Auto Spies is like you're THERE!
