Crozz II builds on the Golf-like Crozz shown in Shanghai earlier this year. The Crozz II arrives with electric 4MOTION all-wheel drive. The front and rear axles each have an motor; the two produce a combined output of 301 horsepower and a top speed of 180 km/h. It also features a spacious cabin that plays host to the next-gen voice recognition — the doors can be opened and closed verbally.
