New VW Mid-Sized American Sedan Spotted

WRCB has the first image of what its contracted photographer calls the “test mule” for the new mid-size sedan (NMS) that Volkwagen will produce at its new plant in Chattanooga. Volkswagen tells the local news outlet that “unfortunately, this is not the NMS. This vehicle is built on the Jetta chassis which may also include some components of a new midsize sedan (NMS) being tested.” Still, this is as close to the long-rumored NMS as we’ll be seeing for a while.

    The new front end does look much nicer than the ugly puss on the current model.

    The nose looks a little like a Dodge Neon.

    VW's only selling point is that it DOES NOT drive like American vehicles. Developing a vehicle for the American market will be as successful as the new Malibu. People don't want slopmobiles!

    Wow! we get a dynamic engine!? Well, I suppose that's better than a static engine like say... a cinder block.
