Several patent sketches of the production-bound Volkswagen New Midsize Coupe (NMC) have surfaced the web.

Last month at the Beijing Motor Show we saw Volkswagen's New Midsize Coupe concept and several days later spy shots showing an undisguised prototype of the production model were published by Chinese media. Now, the car has returned in several patent pics proving once again the car has all the ingredients to be categorized as a sedan.

A recent report suggests a full reveal will occur at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China this December and chances are it will be a China-exclusive model. It will allegedly be based on the China-spec Sagitar (Jetta) and will probably be a sleeker version, just like the Passat has the more attractive CC derivative.

In terms of design, it looks essentially the same as the concept but with some changes in the front bumper, smaller alloy wheels and a more modest exhaust setup. There's not much to report in terms of the interior cabin which is typical VAG, without virtually any novelties but this isn't really a surprise taking into account the concept was the same.
