Chinese media say these are pictures from the B8 Volkswagen Passat Variant. The B8 Volkswagen Passat will be based on a new MQB platform and will be launched internationally in early 2014.
The current Passat B7 sedan is made in China, called Magotan, by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. The B7 variant is currently imported. The fact that the B8 Variant appears in China so early might indicate Volkswagen is planning to build it in China too.

New spy shots from the Volkswagen Magotan Blue Motion in China. Earlier on we heard the Blue Motion would be powered by a 1.6 diesel, which we thought strange because diesel engines for passenger cars are forbidden in most Chinese cities, no matter how ‘clean’ they are. Chinese media report today that the diesel is out, in comes the 131hp 1.4TSI patrol, which sure is a better engine.

New spy shots from the Volkswagen Magotan Blue Motion in China. The Magotan is basically a Passat B7 stretched by ten centimeters in the middle and therefore called B7L. Interestingly the Blue Motion will be powered by a 1.6 TDI diesel engine, while diesels are forbidden in most Chinese cities. Volkswagen possibly got an exception, otherwise it is very unlikely they would offer the Blue Motion in the first place.
