Volkswagen Passat Wagon spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

When the 2011 Volkswagen Passat sedan launches later this year, a wagon variant won't be too far behind. Our spies recently snapped these photos of the next-generation Passat estate touring wagon running around, and even though a leaked photo has revealed what the car's face should look like, we're still squinting and staring to see if we can make out the wagon's rear features.

From what we can tell, it looks to be all business out back, which means that interior load space should be pretty darn capacious, especially with the rear seats folded flat. Will it come to America? That's hit or miss right now, but if it does, expect Volkswagen's 2.0-liter turbo four to be under hood, while other markets will get a range of diesel powerplants. We'll have a better idea of what to expect closer to the Passat sedan's reveal at this year's Paris Motor Show. In the meantime, take a look for yourself in the gallery below.

      It would probably take an APR stage 1 if it gets the 2.0t. That might dust a few surprised bunnies at the lights.

      It might just be the wrapping that they have on it but this car reminds me of an engorged tick.

      Fack you Volkswagen of America for NOT bringing over the upcoming new Passat sedan and variant... Instead we are getting a Tenesse built NMS for "American sized tastes and waists".



      For those who have no idea what the NMS is or will be

      Imagine all the junk you could fit in that.

      I approve this car for the US market.

        While I would be more than happy with a Jetta wagon, people with bigger families may want the extra space. I still see plenty of 2000s Passat Wagons rolling around - seem to be a hit around these parts. I'd wager that it's certainly coming to America, following Jetta Wagon's success.

        Approved as well. And with 4motion and a manual transmission. It'd be the A4 Avant I want but isn't shipped here.

      First there was the Jetta wagon, then up here in Canada they re-named it the Golf wagon (although, its still virtually the same????), now there's a Passat wagon coming soon? Ohhhh i'm getting so confused...... Can somebody explain what Volkswagen is doing here, cuz I don't get it. The Golf, Jetta, and Passat wagons seem to be merging into one vehicle.

        Um...Passat wagon's been imported (at least, into the U.S.) for quite a while, now. This should not be news to you.

        I guess what I'm saying is that there doesn't seem to be a big difference in size from what I see, especially now that the Golf/Jetta wagon has grown in size substantially since the last model was released a couple years ago.

        As an aside, what's with the Canada/US name game? Is the so-called "smaller" wagon a Golf or is it a Jetta? Why not just make a "Golf sedan" & "Golf wagon" and drop the Jetta nameplate entirely. It's the same thing and has been for years.

        Passat wagon will be bigger than Jetta/Golf wagon. Bigger platform.

      Yaay, real station wagon, not some ugly assless 5 door hatchback abomination trying to pass off as a wagon.

      I realize that the back-end is camo'ed, and that there are likely attachment points in the wheel wells, but does anyone else think the proportions look 'off' around the rear wheel well - almost as if there's a heavy load in the back of this car - or like the rear wheel well is too close to the tire?

      Nice.
