Snapped: Secret Passat coupe

Our spies have snapped shots of a Volkswagen Passat offshoot, very possibly the rumoured four-door "coupe", undergoing testing in the US.

Volkswagen has previously confirmed its plans to build an upmarket Passat with sleek coupe-like styling. These images of an unknown Volkswagen prototype are the closest we've come to seeing the new car, yet.

The prototype's near-production look also suggests that it is being primed for a Frankfurt Motor Show unveiling.

This Passat will likely be powered by a range of four- and six-cylinder units, including the new 3.6-litre V6 with 223 kW on tap.

VW's 4Motion all-wheel drive will also be made available, along with a DSG transmission.
