Details of the car are scarce, but rumours and reports say the new sedan will differ from the Passat and provide more interior room. It'll supposedly offer a smoother exterior design too, similar to that of the Volkswagen Jetta XL.
The main consumer-related temptation this car will hold though is the price. It will be made in the US, Tennessee, which means price tags are expected to hover around the $20,000 mark, making it quite the bargain, and considerably cheaper than the current Passat (around $7000 cheaper). This could be a great proposition for the American market, especially for a car that is 'German-engineered'.
Look out for more reports from CarAdvice next week upon the car's official unveiling.
