The North American division of Volkswagen released today three renderings of its New Midsize Sedan (NMS), which will be produced at the company's assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The NMS, which is meant to be placed between the VW Jetta and Passat, will reportedly be a Honda Accord & Toyota Camry competitor.

In the United States, Volkswagen's Passat is priced at $27,665 for the sedan and at $29,095 for the wagon version. This means the upcoming NMS model could be available for under $25,000.

The renderings focus on the new model's distinctive German design and progressive body styling.

The front view shows the strong hood lines and integration of the new Volkswagen design language across the face of the vehicle. The side view introduces the broad C-pillar and strong shoulder line, as well as the distinctive three window segments.

In addition, the sculptured side panel has a strong rocker line running between the wheel arches. The unique head and tail lights are visible from the front and rear perspectives and underscore the model's modern, sporty look.

The NMS will be unveiled at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) and it’s scheduled for market introduction in the third quarter of the same year.

The list of cars to hit US and Canadian shores next year includes the NMS, Beetle, Tiguan and Eos. They will be accompanied on the market by the new Jetta and the new Touareg. All these models are planned to help the German manufacturer achieve its target of one million vehicles sold annually in the US by 2018.
