The very first spy shots of the new China-only Volkswagen c-class sedan testing on Chinese roads. The new sedan will be positioned between the Volkswagen Passat/Magotan and the Volkswagen Phaeton. Code name is ‘511 C-NB’ and it will be based on the MQB platform. The new sedan will be made in China by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture.


The Volkswagen 511 C-NB will get a four-door coupe shape like the Passat CC. Price will start from around 300.000 yuan and end around 500.000 yuan. The Passat/Magotan ends at 320.000 yuan and the Phaeton comes in at 75.000 yuan. Wheelbase will be close to 2900mm, with a focus on legroom for the passengers in the back. There will be two engines available: 2.0 TSI and 3.0V6.

The new sedan will debut in late 2014. Volkswagen expects sales to start rather slow with a planned 41.000 cars for the whole of 2015, moving up steadily to 60.000 in 2021 when the 511 C-NB is due for replacement.
