The VW Virtus will be global model which will be launched in the Indian market as a replacement to the popular Vento sedan. The latter is likely to be soon taken off the shelves soon after the arrival of the Virtus. It will take the fight against the rivals such as the Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna as well as the segment leader Honda City. Needless to say, both Skoda and VW 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.
