VolksWatch has captured these images of Volkswagen's upcoming Passat-based coupe from a recently launched teaser website.

In this new automotive world of crossovers galore, the vehicle is more a sedan than a coupe as it has four doors. However, the bold styling of a coupe is clearly evident — with a low-slung roof and pronounced character lines.

Dynamic best describes the details, with angular windswept rearview mirrors, wrap-around taillights, and muscular shoulders through the door tops that become broad and dramatic as they flow into the rear fenders.

This is a marked departure from other recent Volkswagen designs, save for the sharp-looking Tiguan.

Positioned between the current Passat and high-luxury Phaeton, this vehicle is expected to come to market with nothing less than a VR6 engine worth 280 horsepower or more. Europe will likely get various other engines, including four-cylinders and diesels.

The car will likely turn up at auto shows over the next few months and hit European dealerships as early as summer 2008. A North American intro is likely for 2009.
