Volkswagen ID.4 coupe-crossover prototype spotted at the Nurburgring

In fact, the official name of this car, seen at the Nürburgring, remains a mystery, as the mysterious Volkswagen ID.4 coupe-crossover with a fake grille and exhaust system was tested.

Another car that distorts the meaning of the word “coupe”, the “nimble” Volkswagen ID.4 was spotted in the quiet lane of the Nurburgring. The prototype with a fake “grill” made of stickers on the front doesn’t differ that much from the “regular” ID.4. The change is noticeable at the rear of the B-pillars as the roofline slopes more than the standard model.

Fake tailpipe trims aside, you can see an integrated rear spoiler with a third brake light, just like the traditional ID.4. It is also impossible not to notice the disappearance of the rear wiper. It is likely that Volkswagen wanted to clean up the exterior, in the spirit of the Porsche Cayenne Coupe.

The taillights appear to have different graphics with tiny rectangles that separate the coupe version from the “regular” ID.4. The bumpers have presumably been revised as well: in fact, the front bumper already looks significantly more aggressive with large (and probably fake) side air intakes. In addition, the prototype appears to be slightly closer to the ground, suggesting a stiffer suspension.

One of the most important pieces of the puzzle is the name of the car. Previously it was assumed that it will be called ID.4 GTX or ID.5, but there is no official information yet. Looking at Audi and its Q4 E-Tron, the sibling of the electric coupe SUV will not be called the Q5 E-Tron, but rather the Q4 E-Tron Sportback, so VW is likely to stick with the ID name. for its sports derivative.

Be that as it may, the sportier ID.4 could be unveiled in 2021 as it doesn’t differ much from the donor model. It remains to be seen if it will be more powerful to offset the decline in usability caused by the sloping roofline, but it goes without saying that it will cost a little more than the regular version it is based on. Let’s remind that the “usual” Volkswagen ID.4 with 201 hp. RWD starts at $ 39,995, followed by the AWD model with 302bhp. priced at $ 43,695
