The Volkswagen Virtus will make its global debut in India today, and it will replace the Vento

The highly anticipated Volkswagen Virtus compact sedan is set to make its global debut in India today, and we’ll be bringing you all the live updates from the event here. The Virtus is the first sedan from VW to be built on the localised MQB A0 IN platform, which already underpins the Taigun compact SUV. In fact, the new compact sedan will also share its powertrain options with the Volkswagen Taigun. While we do not expect the company to announce the price of the Virtus sedan today, the launch could take place as early as April 2022.

The Volkswagen Virtus will come with two turbocharged petrol engines – a 1.0-litre TSI and 1.5-litre TSI motor

The Volkswagen Virtus will come with two turbocharged petrol engines – a 1.0-litre TSI and 1.5-litre TSI motor, and both will be offered in manual and automatic choices. The former makes 113 bhp and 175 Nm of peak torque, and it comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and an optional 6-speed automatic torque converter. The bigger 1.5-litre motor makes 148 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque and comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 7-speed DSG automatic unit.

We still haven’t seen the car in its undisguised avatar. However, based on the several spy photos we have seen, and the teaser released by the carmaker, the Virtus will be bigger than the outgoing Vento and will be similar in dimensions to Skoda’s Slavia, which is also based on the MQB A0 IN platform.
