Photos of Volkswagen’s New Polo-based sedan have surfaced online. The sedan is a replacement for the Honda City-rivalling Vento, and is built on Volkswagen’s MQB A0 platform; the company will use the platform to develop small cars and also models for emerging markets like South America and India.
The new sedan shares its styling with the new Polo, and the two cars are near-identical till the front doors, but the sedan has bigger doors thanks to a longer wheelbase. The sedan’s rear bumper, boot and slim wraparound tail-lights are similar to the Audi A4, and it also gets smatterings of chrome.
The Virtus’s interior is the same as the all-new Polo, including its dual-LED screen cockpit. It will also will be the first model in its segment to feature a 10.2- inch TFT screen along with a second 8.0-inch infotainment display. Like in the New Polo, engines are likely to include a 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol motor.
As of now, there’s no news of if or whether the car will come to India.
