The VW Virtus will be introduced as the replacement to the popular Vento sedan which is likely to be taken off the shelves in India after the arrival of Virtus. 

When launched, it will take the fight against the rivals such as the Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna as well as the segment leader Honda City. Expect the Virtus to be slightly more premium than the other rivals in the segment. It will be a technical twin the Skoda Slavia which was also introduced recently in the Indian market. 

Needless to say, both Skoda as well as Volkswagen are upping the sedan game in India with products like the Slavia and the Virtus. It would be interesting to note how these models perform.
