The Weekend Edition concept is based on an SEL premium model—equipped with a 3.6L VR6 engine that delivers 276-horsepower and an eight-speed transmission, paired with Volkswagen’s advanced 4MOTION all-wheel drive with Drive Mode Select. The Weekend Edition rides on 18” Prisma wheels finished in a custom anthracite gray and features a modern variation of the pop-up roof—the Urban Loader cargo box.

When the Urban Loader is empty, the box offers a sleek, minimized appearance. When needed for hauling, the Urban Loader can expand to a 17.7 cubic-foot container. Base carrier bars are also included on the concept for attaching accessories for skis, snowboards, kayaks, or bikes. Practical side steps make reaching for cargo on the roof an easy task.

Inside the Weekend Edition, a few accessories help to enhance the traveling experience. A robust cargo dividers provides a safe, pet-friendly barrier behind the second row so pets can ride in comfort. The second row features an innovative universal tablet mount so passengers can bring along tablets for entertainment on the road.
