Volkswagen ID.5 GTX Coupe teased ahead of September reveal
The all-new Volkswagen ID.5 GTX has been teased ahead of its reveal at the Munich Motor Show in September.
It’s very similar to the new ID.4 GTX, but features a sportier, coupe-like look. Here’s everything you need to know.
Volkswagen ID.5 GTX styling
The pictures show the car in full camouflage, but the overall look of the car is no surprise. Up front, it looks identical to the ID.4 SUV with the tell-tale IQ matrix LED headlights and a light strip including the VW badge.
To the side, however, things are quite different. It gets a sloped roofline which gives the car a more coupe-like appearance than the ID.4. VW says the A-pillars (the bits in front of the windscreen) have been designed to give the roof line an “elegant flow”.
At the rear, there are a number of horizontal lines and styling cues which aim to “accentuate” the width of the car. There’s LED rear lights with a 3D design too, which aim to give the car a luxury appeal.
The GTX will be the sportier model of the ID.5 range, and as such is likely to get larger alloy wheels, different trim pieces and a range of unique colour options. We’ll bring you full specs on this when they are revealed.
Volkswagen ID.5 interior and tech
It’ll be likely that the ID.5 GTX will uses the same cutting-edge tech and cockpit layout of the ID.3 and ID.4, although we’re yet to see official pictures yet (the one above is the ID.4 GTX).
If that’s the case, you’ll find a 10in infotainment system orientated towards the driver and a digital instrument display.
Being the GTX, you’re also likely to get a range of sporty stainless steel trim, and if it’s like the ID.4 GTX, you’ll get a new steering wheel too.
Volkswagen ID.5 GTX drivetrain
The ID.5 GTX will be the most potent car in the ID.5 range, so it’ll get the same all-wheel drive system and 77kWh battery pack as the ID.4 GTX. This should give it a range of around 300 miles and give it a 0-62mph time of 6.2 seconds.
The suspension will also be lower and stiffer than the standard cars, while a sports pack and adaptive dampers are also likely to be offered as additional options.
Volkswagen ID.5 GTX leasing plans
The ID.5 GTX will be revealed in full at the upcoming Munich Motor Show in September, with prices and specs to be revealed in the next few weeks.
