2012 Volkswagen Passat - 2011 Detroit Auto
By KBB.com Editors
Summary: Finally shedding the “NMS” tag -- for New Mid-size Sedan -- it wore since VW announced plans to build it here at a new facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the 2012 Volkswagen Passat got its formal reveal in Detroit. In marked contrast to the vehicle last sold here as a 2010 model, this all-new Passat incarnation was designed specifically to accommodate the tastes and demands of American consumers, and is not merely a retrimmed version of the smaller Passat currently on sale in Europe.
