The new Virtus will have a completely transformed look as compared to the Vento. It gets a front design that is inspired by the all new 2021 Polo that has was unveiled in foreign markets. The Virtus is going to sit on the same MQB AO IN platform that we see on the VW Taigun and the Skoda Kushaq. From what we saw on the test cars, the Virtus looks significantly bigger than the Vento, which is a good sign considering that the Vento was never known for its rear seat space and comfort.
