Volkswagen NMC Already Spied in Production Form

Spotted testing in China with a Shanghai-Volkswagen badge.

The Volkswagen NMC four-door coupe wasjust unveiled at last week’s Beijing Motor Show 2014, but already, the car hasbeen spotted testing in near-production form on Chinese roads. Destined to fitin between the Jetta and Passat and possibly replace both models, the NMC isbasically a smaller brother to the beautiful VW CC 4-door coupe. While it isn'tyet clear whether the car will be offered outside of China, we have heardreports that a North American version could be built in Mexico.

The test vehicle spotted in China is basically identical tothe Beijing concept car, with smaller wheels and toned-down headlights the onlyvisual differences. The car was wearing TSI badges, which could relate toeither the 1.4 or 2.0-liter TSI engines available to the Chinese joint venture. With its sights reportedly set on the Mercedes-Benz CLA Class, VW will havesome serious competition when it officially introduces this model.
