Volkswagen unveiled its Neeza crossover concept in Beijing, which has the chin of an Audi Q7, but the heart of a Las Vegas lounge act. Actually, whispers indicate the concept may hearken the ute-like stylings of the upcoming Audi Q5, which is expected to be introduced next year, possibly at the Frankfurt show. The 14.8' long prototype is the product of VW's Shanghai design shop, but something similar, according to Edmunds Inside Line, could show up in the US later this decade — along with its platform-mate, the upcoming Tiguan SUV — as Volkswagen's line expansion plans continue unabated.
