Our Fomoconews.com reader Matt has sent us inside rendering shots of the upcoming Volkswagen Cross Pheaton. We're told that the powers that be at Volkswagen are determined to prove that Volkswagen can play with the big boys just as Lexus did with the LS so many years ago.

The current Pheaton has been a bit of a disappointment to say the least and we we're wondering what that Volvo Crossroad front end will do wonders for Germany's laymans brand

This must be a joke. Its essentially the same car with some sort of off roader grille and a . . . roof rack????

I really can't think of what point VW is trying to make with this thing!

The upper photo looks like a chop of a Subaru Outback. I can't imagine VW wanting to try this again, at least not in the US. This is even LESS attractive than the Lincoln Navicross of 2003, and that is one design I'm sure Ford would be grateful to go unmentioned.

Would you please post an outback for comparison. This does look wierd, espcially that SUV look in a sedan

Navicross would have been a great hit with the Hip Hop types in LA and the likes.. It would have been the perfect answer that Ford needed for 300C.

VW never gets it. Why would I buy this when I could drive an A8?

This is the biggest one I could find in a hurry. Notice the light beige molding around the wheel openeing.
