Volkswagen’s ‘New Midsized Coupe’ (NMC) concept, revealed at last week’s Beijing Auto Show, is expected to enter production in the not-too-distant future.

And even in concept form, the sleek sedan (or four-door ‘coupe’ if we’re to take Volkswagen’s angle) looks ready to hit the road.

These latest renderings, from design wiz Theophilus Chin, pull the NMC closer to production by adding conventional bumpers and tail-lights and a set of regular Golf R wheels.

But as close as the NMC looks to making a beeline for the assembly line, Volkswagen has yet to confirm plans for a production future.

For now, VW has revealed that the NMC is built on the new Golf’s MQB platform and boasts dimensions that would see the ‘coupe sedan’ sold alongside the popular hatch and its Jetta sibling.

And despite its slightly sleeker roofline, Volkswagen says the NMC offers comparable interior space to the Jetta sedan, along with a sizeable 500 litres of rear storage.

In concept form, the NMC rides on big 20-inch wheels and draws power from the same 162kW 2.0 litre turbo engine that drives the new Golf GTI.

Whether we'll see the NMC debut as a 'Jetta CC' remains to be seen, although reports suggest this more affordable alternative to the Mercedes-Benz CLA - and the Volkswagen Group's own Audi A3 Sedan - is already set for production.

If that's true, we can expect more details to surface over the coming year.
