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.
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.
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.
