If you're smitten with the new U.S.-market Volkswagen Passat but were hoping for a bit more cargo capacity, we've got some bad news. According to the latest reports, Volkswagen of America has no plans to offer a Passat wagon in the North American market. (Can't say we didn't see this one coming.)

This news breaks despite reports of the European-market Passat wagon spied testing in the United States. The two models – European and American – are completely different vehicles, and the Passat wagon seen undergoing development on our shores is apparently the overseas model.

The previous-generation Passat wagon suffered from poor sales as American customers continued to shift from station wagons to taller crossovers. As a result, Volkswagen is reportedly preparing a seven-seat crossover to join the Tiguan and Touareg and go up against the likes of the Honda Pilot and Ford Explorer. But for those who still prefer a wagon, the Jetta SportWagen is now the company's only choice here in the States.
