Is the VW GX3 a car or a motorcycle? It is in-between and it looks very hot for a Volkswagen.

Volkswagen will show GX3 concept at the Los Angeles Motor Show that takes place from the 6th to the 15th of January.
The GX3 was conceived by the Moonraker team and VW’s Design Center in California, exclusively with the U.S. in mind, to bring an new idea to a fully functioning concept.

The GX3 only takes 5.7 seconds to go from 0-62.5 mph (100 km/h) and the fuel consumption in the city is estimated to be 46 mpg (5.2 l/100 km).

The GX3 will be driven by a VW 1.6 liter engine. The four-cylinder delivers 92 kW / 125 hp.
It could cost under $17,000. VW says if US customers getting excited about this new way of driving, they would introduce it in the market. The Autoblog has several hi-res photos and of the VW GX3. More details in this Volkswagen press-release.
