There are good chances that the new mid-size sedan will replace the Vento in Volkswagen India’s portfolio. The new sedan could be christened the ‘Virtus’ and will be positioned alongside the Slavia in terms of pricing, features, and equipment.

Just like the Slavia, the upcoming Virtus will be available with only petrol engine options. The gives a clear advantage to the Hyundai Verna and the Honda City, which can still be had with a diesel mill. The engines on offer will be 1.0-litre three-pot petrol and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit, both of which will be turbocharged.

The upcoming Volkswagen mid-size sedan is likely to be priced between Rs 9.50 lakh and Rs15.5 lakh (ex-showroom). The higher variants of the new VW sedan and the Slavia are likely to be in the same price range as the Hyundai Elantra.
