Details for the production version of Volkswagen's 'New Midsized Coupe' continue to make their way online, with new patent application renderings surfacing this week.
These latest images, offering a clear view of the new model from every angle, come less than one week after a collection of spy photos revealed the new Chinese-market sedan in the flesh.
Those shots, of course, came just days after the car made its 'concept' debut at the Beijing Auto Show. And, as expected, little has changed between that concept's unveiling and now.
The sleek new sedan - described as a four-door coupe - will leap from concept to production with the company’s familiar styling in tow, while the show car’s stepped headlight design has also been smoothed out.
Chinese website Autohome reports that the new model - which is yet to be officially named - has been developed exclusively for China, although earlier reports suggest that a second production base will be set up at Volkswagen’s Mexico plant.
If true, that detail would add credence to the suggestion that this new model is intended for China and developing markets. If a global launch were planned, the MQB platform would be the more likely architecture.
However, we could see an MQB-based version of this model hit global markets after the next-generation Jetta sedan launches sometime in 2016.
The new sedan is expected to make its Chinese-market debut toward the end of 2014.
