VW New Midsize Sedan: Will be called VW Passat!

VW Passat

No surprise here for regular readers of The German Car Blog, but VW has confirmed that the VW New Midsize Sedan will indeed be called VW Passat. And we also believe it will look similar to the picture above.

We’re less than 24 hours away from Volkswagen’s big reveal at the Detroit Auto Show and while our man Paukert was staked out at a media gathering at VW’s corporate headquarters in Herndon, VA he learned that the NMS will carry the Passat badge when it goes on sale later this year.

Up until now, there was some question whether V-Dub would continue to use Passat for its new mid-size sedan, but after the NCS (New Compact Sedan) debuted with the Jetta badge, it was all but assumed that the Passat nameplate would carry on.
