Sounds like you caught a fifth generation Passat.  I would very much doubt
that Audi would have any undisguised new models running around on public
streets.  The Passat, having already been launched in Europe, and being
available with Syncro (actually genuine quattro, due to its A4 roots), is a
much morel likely target.  It is a few months away from U.S. launch from what
I hear.
