Volkswagen is reportedly in the midst of developing a brand new model to rival the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The new Volkswagen will sit between the Passat and Phaeton sedans and to adequately rival the 5-Series, will be available in a selection of different body styles.
According to German reports, this new Volkswagen will use the same platform as the next-generation Audi A6 and the US-spec Passat.
While further details about this potential new model remain scarce, there’s certainly a possibility that it will be available with a plethora of different engines ranging from four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines offered in both petrol and diesel guises.
If the car is given the green light for production, it could be produced in China, Mexico or the United States.
