Volkswagen has released a teaser image of the 2012 New Midsize Sedan (NMS). The model is scheduled to debut at the International Auto Show to be held next week in Detroit.

The NMS will be sleeker. It has accommodated more room than their early premium sedan model Passat. It is likely to bear a Jetta XL-like look. It is to be built in Tennessee.

This enables the company to sell it for approximately $20,000. The price is nearly $7,000 less than the Passat. Volkswagen plans to sell 10 million vehicles a year by 2018. NMS is the major vehicle in this plan.

No additional information has been provided in the teaser. We have to wait till the car is officially unveiled on Monday. The market segment of Accord, Camry, etc runs tight competition. It is to be seen whether the 2012 Volkswagen NMS could conquer over them.
