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

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.
First shot of the interior. Sporty dials and steering wheel. Screen seems very small. Red emergency button typical for test cars, pressing it will switch of all electric systems and thus the engine.
Sleek profile in Passat CC style, but somehow not a very exciting vehicle.
