And while the company has said on several occasions that it will not be expanding its lineup to models smaller than the <a /volkswagen/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/volkswagen/golf/">Golf</a>, there's certainly room for expansion elsewhere in its portfolio. At the <a /detroit-auto-show/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/detroit-auto-show/">2013 Detroit Auto Show</a>, Volkswagen debuted its <a /2013/01/14/volkswagen-crossblue-detroit-2013/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/14/volkswagen-crossblue-detroit-2013/">CrossBlue concept</a> - a three-row, midsize crossover designed specifically with the US market in mind. And during a roundtable discussion at the <a /frankfurt-motor-show/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/frankfurt-motor-show/">Frankfurt Motor Show</a> earlier this month, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America Jonathan Browning told us that a midsize CUV is the company's "top priority" in the US.<br /><br />But let's be clear: The CrossBlue is not a replacement for the <a /volkswagen/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/volkswagen/touareg/">Touareg</a>, or any other vehicle in the company's US lineup (except maybe the <a /chrysler/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/chrysler/">Chrysler</a>-supplied <a /volkswagen/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/volkswagen/routan/">Routan</a> minivan). This will be an all-new offering built on Volkswagen's scalable MQB architecture - the same platform that underpins the Mk7 Golf, among other products. To give us a better idea of exactly what's in store for the new CrossBlue, Volkswagen flew us out to Germany's Siegerland Airport the day before the Frankfurt show to give us an up-close-and-personal look at its all-important new crossover.<p><a /2013/09/21/volkswagen-crossblue-concept-deep-dive/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/21/volkswagen-crossblue-concept-deep-dive/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a /2013/09/21/volkswagen-crossblue-concept-deep-dive/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/21/volkswagen-crossblue-concept-deep-dive/">Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sat, 21 Sep 2013 19:00:00 EST.
