Volkswagen has been a really successful brand in India and now that there have been no major updates on the Volkswagen lineup in the present years, we would like to take you through what we can expect from the upcoming new sedan. The new VW sedan was caught testing in India recently and now that we finally have something new from their end now, we would like you to know these important highlights on the same sedan! Here are the top 7 most Googled questions on Volkswagen Virtus.
Will Volkswagen Virtus Replace Vento?
Almost all of us have the same question but there is no confirmed information about this yet. Volkswagen has not said anything about discontinuing the already existing sedan which is why we think this one will co-exist for at least the initial phase and then they will think of taking the Vento off the charts.
What Platform is Vitrus Based On?
The Volkswagen Vitrus is based on the MQB-AO-IN platform which is Skoda-Volkswagen’s new project for India. The newly launched Kushaq is also based on the same platform and there are more cars planned for the Indian market based on the same platform.

Will the Virtus be longer than Vento?
Another thing which most of us want to know about are the measurements. Well, talking about the comparison of Vento and Virtus, we can say that the upcoming sedan will be longer than the existing sedan version of Polo in India. Vento has been a really good car in the Indian market and we expect the same from Virtus too.
Is the Virtus feature equipped?
At present we know about the Brazilian spec Virtus and if Volkswagen decides to bring it as is in the Indian market, we can definitely say that it will be a feature-rich vehicle. The 10.25-inch display lights the cockpit up while the 8-inch display on the centre offers you all that you need. This unit offers MirrorLink, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Leather seats, steering mounted controls and automatic climate control add to the value factor of the sedan.
What powers the Volkswagen Virtus?
What we know as of now is that this car will be available with a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine under the hood which is also available on the Vento. What do you think? Will the longer dimensions make this car underpowered? FYI, Vento also houses the same engine.
What is the expected price of Volkswagen Virtus?
All of us know how competitive the Indian market has become in terms of pricing. Talking about Volkswagen’s upcoming car, we can expect it to be around 10 Lakhs for the base variant and go up to 17-18 Lakhs if the lineup is huge! Kushaq also has a huge lineup which is why we think they are planning to introduce a wide range to choose from.
What is the Expected Launch Date of VW Virtus?
Last but not least, Volkswagen has not rolled out any official information regarding the launch timeline as of now. However, we expect this German sedan to arrive in India towards the end of 2021. What do you think about this new upcoming sedan in India?
