Volkswagen NMC production version spied totally undisguised

On sale late this year

A prototype of the production-ready Volkswagen New Midsize Coupe was spied recently in China, prior to a market release slated for late 2014.

Earlier this month Volkswagen introduced the NMC (New Midsize Coupe) concept at the Beijing Motor Show in China and already spy photographers captured the vehicle in production guise. Local media reports it will go on sale before the end of the year and will be built locally by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture while the design will be carried over from the concept, albeit toned down a bit.

It will allegedly be revealed in December at the Guangzhou Auto Show and will be based on the China-spec Sagitar (Jetta). NMC (name not final) will probably be to the Jetta what the CC is to the Passat, a sleeker-looking version although not worthy of the coupe designation since this is by all possible definitions a sedan.

For now it will be a China-only affair but chances are a similar version will come out in Europe and other markets in 2016 and will allegedly be based on the next-gen Jetta.

What's with the plastic-y red knob behind the shifter?? Is that like the emergency STOP button?? lol (Or is it VW's new replacement for the handbrake/parking brake?) Seriously though, I think the car does look sleeker than the current Passat and Jetta, but it's not that exciting or groundbreaking.

I'm afraid NMC isn't in any way sexy at all.

I remember reading an article about VW is going to have a new design language or something like that. I think this will happen after 20 years. All their cars are the same as their previous generation.

By the time they catch up to today's designs, the rest of us will be flying around in Jetsons cars.
