    Is this the new 2012 Passat? Dr. Martin Winterkorn, chairman of the Volkswagen group has personally released this sketch of a mid-sized saloon car, codenamed the NMS (New Mid-sized Sedan). The sleek four-door will be manufactured at VW’s new plant at Chattanooga, Tennessee, which is currently under construction.

    The angular saloon is said to be slightly bigger than the Passat CC meaning more legroom for passengers in the back, while the creased bodywork and low roofline marks quite a departure from more conservative VW designs of the past.

    Unfortunately, Winterkorn has confirmed that the NMS is destined exclusively for the North American market – with a price tag of around USD 22,000 (around £15,000) when it hits the road in 2012. However, the new design language could be a big clue as to how the 2012 European Passat will shape up.
