Vw’s new sedan will come with a price tag beginning at $20,000

Although the VW Passat has been relatively successful in the US, the carmaker is currently working on a New Midsize Sedan, which is codenamed NMS, as its successor. The NMS's final design has already been approved and prototypes of the sedan were already shown dealers this week in Wolfsburg. The new sedan, which is aimed at US markets, will be larger than the Passat and will come with a price tag beginning at $20,000.

The new sedan was created with the American consumer in mind. It will come with American requirements: space, total seat comfort, cup holders, Bluetooth connectivity and other electronic gadgets. However, although the car was entirely designed and engineered for American users, the car will still remain a Volkswagen.

It was previewed last February with official sketches of the car's essential lines, it is expected to arrive in the US next year. The sedan's front section is apparently patterned after the Scirocco and, compared with other VW models, it comes with a more angular and squared-ff rear section and shoulder line making the NMS a car apart.

The NMS, which will be manufactured in the carmaker's factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee, might actually be a design direction for future Volkswagen products in the US.

The new VW mid-sized sedan was presented in Berlin last year with high design ideals, consisting of a wide variety of standard safety and multimedia equipment, sporty handling, and essentially practical elements such as sufficient cup holders and spacious seating.

Lineup for powertrains consist of FSI gasoline units and in the future possibly TDI diesel units, coupled with a dual-clutch gearbox, a ratio almost like that of the Jetta TDI released earlier and for the upcoming renamed US-maker VW Golf.

Although efficiency will be part of the NMS focus, it is not at this time. According to VW it is not their philosophy to build a car for a specific market. For them, a good car is a good car anywhere. What is important for them is the customization, the color finish, the tuning, the specialties, the accessories and the wheels.
