Default Official: Vw will launch new midsize sedan

During the drive event where the new 2010 Mark VI Golf is displayed, in an interview, VW’s U.S. president Stephan Jacoby about the company’s plans for the still unnamed New Midsize Sedan (NMS), the replacement of the Passat for North America . Jacoby explains that the problem lies in the fact that the Passat isn’t suited to the distances Americans drive or the size of vehicle preferred. Volkswagen came up with the NMS, a four-door built at the Chattanooga , Tennessee plant, that offers a wider cabin and more rear seat legroom. Expected to be priced from $20,000, the car has been previewed in sketches before; however, a trio of new sketches were recently previewed in Germany . It was then revealed that the car will resemble the VW Quantum due to its lower rear roofline, tightly integrated front end and angular headlamps similar to those seen on the Mark VI Golf. On a different note, it was confirmed that the Phaeton large sedan will return to the US . For quite some time, the Phaeton was being considered for a US return but apparently, Jacoby now thinks that the market is once again primed for a comeback.
