Report: Volkswagen working on a BMW 5-Series competitor

Germany’s AutoBild heard Volkswagen might be doing the unthinkable by creating a BMW 5-Series competitor, which makes us think–isn’t that what Audi’s A6 is for?

Volkswagen seems to be adamant about expanding its own lineup, even after its luxurious Phaeton failed to sell in the US. Speaking of which, there wasn’t any specification as to whether or not the US could see this model. That said, there could be a chance this model could be unique to the German market, much like the first generation Phaeton was.

The new competitor gets its backbone from the next-gene Audi A6 or even from the next-gen US-spec Passat. Expect the usual assortment of four- and six- cylinder gas and diesel engines with all-wheel drive.
