New spy shots of the Volkswagen NMC testing in China. The Volkswagen NMC, or New Midsize Coupe, will be launched on the Chinese car market just before the end of this year. It debuted as a concept on the Beijing Auto Show in April, and the production version will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in early December.

The Volkswagen NMC is a sporty CC model based on the Volkswagen Jetta (called Sagitar in China), developed to attack the mighty popular Mercedes-Benz CLA. The NMC will be manufactured in China by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture. Power will come from 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI four-cylinder petrol engines, both mated to a seven-speed DSG. Price on the China car market will start around 180.000 yuan or 29.000 USD.
Real thing stays very close to concept.
