To sum up Virtus in a single line, it’s the Volkswagen’s version of the recently launched Skoda Slavia. Built on Volkswagen Group’s MQB A0 IN platform, 95 percent of Vitrus’ components have been localised.
The sedan gets the typical Volkswagen Vanilla design language with sharp cuts and creases through the body. Though the overall silhouette looks like that of the Vento, the presence of LED headlamps at the front along with bigger dimensions bring in a new appeal.
