Spy Shots: Volkswagen NMC is Naked in China

Spy Shots showing the new China-only Volkswagen NMC, looking completely ready for its debut on the Chengdu Auto Show tomorrow. The final name of the new Volkswagen is yet a secret. The NMC, or New Midsize Coupe, debuted as a concept on the Beijing Auto Show in April.



The Volkswagen NMC is a sporty CC model based on the Volkswagen MQB platform, the same platform that underpins the Volkswagen Golf 7. The NMC is 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. The NMC will be launched on the China car market in early 2015, price will start around 180.000 yuan or 29.000 USD.


A mini CC? Sporty looks targeted at young Chinese car buyers, a large and booming market, who are looking for something more exciting than the sedan their parents drive.

    Hi Tycho,

    NMC is based on the MQB platform (i.e. Same as Golf A7), and not the Sagitar which is based on an older PQ platform.

    No 2.0T for this guy yet, but there will be a nice new 1.8T 😉
