The VW Virtus will have a longer wheelbase than the 2017 VW Polo (2,564 mm) which should give more comfort to rear passengers.

The VW Virtus (2018 VW Polo Sedan)’s design a step up compared to the VW Polo Sedan (VW Vento). The back glass looks bigger and more rakish, giving the sedan a more cohesive style. The tail lamps look inspired by those of the Audi A4. At the bottom, designers have applied the bumper with a full-width chrome trim. The subtle spoiler is a neat touch to the rear.

From the two pre-production models, one finished in red and other in black, the latter looks like the top-spec model. It gets alloy wheels and chrome.

The VW Virtus will have a longer wheelbase than the 2017 VW Polo (2,564 mm) freeing up more knee room for rear passengers. Spy shots suggest that the interior will look the same as that of hatchback it is derived from. Multifunction steering wheel, 10.2-inch virtual instrument cluster, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and automatic climate control are among the key interior features revealed so far. The steering wheel is hazy in both images but shows that cruise control is also included in the list of features. However, there’s no sign of Adaptive Cruise Control.
