The 26-year-old has recently passed 1,000 first-class runs for the third consecutive season, and he has now committed to the current county champions until the end of the 2016 season.
The former Essex batsman has scored three County Championship centuries this summer, and he has also skippered the side in the absence of Jim Troughton.
"Since joining from Essex I've enjoyed a great four years at Edgbaston, where the Club has won trophies and I've been able to contribute runs at the top of the order," Chopra said.
"We've got a strong squad, great coaching team and I'm looking forward to at least three more years here, where I hope to contribute towards winning more trophies for Warwickshire and its supporters."
Warwickshire director of cricket Dougie Brown added: "Varun has been an instrumental member of the team since joining from Essex four years ago, and he has a proven record of scoring big runs in all formats of the game.
"He is a great role model for all the Warwickshire youngsters to aspire to and securing a player as highly thought of as him for the next three years is a massive boost for everyone connected with Warwickshire."
