Volkswagen India recently launched the Virtus, a brand-new sedan designed specifically for the Indian market. The forthcoming Virtus is the second product to be released as part of Volkswagen’s India 2.0 strategy. The Taigun compact SUV was the company’s debut offering. Except for the price and versions, Volkswagen has published most of the details regarding the forthcoming Virtus. The Volkswagen Virtus, like the Skoda Slavia, Volkswagen Taigun, and Skoda Kushaq SUV, is built on the same platform. Virtus is slated to launch in the coming months, as production and pre-booking have begun. Most of the videos of the Virtus on the internet are of the top-end form, but here’s a video of a mid-spec variant of the impending Virtus sedan discovered on the road.
The Fat Biker has posted the footage to his YouTube account. A Volkswagen Virtus vehicle is seen driving down a highway in the footage. The car had a temporary number plate and appeared to be different from the one that had been shown to us previously. It’s a middle-of-the-road model with a restricted set of features. The Volkswagen Virtus mid variation has different-looking headlamps than the higher or top-end variant. They’re still LED units, but the design on the inside is a little different.
Volkswagen Virtus Exterior
The mid-spec variant destined for the Indian market is expected to come with a silver-colored single-tone alloy wheel, similar to the Volkswagen Taigun. The Virtus sedan looks the same in India as it does in the rest of the world. Only modest alterations would be made to them. Projector LED headlights, LED fog lamps, dual-tone alloy wheels, LED tail lamps, and other amenities are available on the top-end model.
Volkswagen Virtus Interior and Features
Volkswagen provides a premium-looking interior. Leather upholstery, ventilated seats, automated climate control, electric sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, push-button start, completely digital instrument cluster, touchscreen infotainment system, wireless phone charging, cooled glove box, and so on are just a few of the features. With the top-end models, Volkswagen will also include safety technologies such as stability control, hill-hold, tyre deflation warning, electronic differential lock, multi-collision braking, and even six airbags.
Volkswagen Virtus Engine
There will be two engine options available for the Volkswagen Virtus. A 1.0-litre TSI (turbo petrol) and a 1.5-litre TSI (turbo petrol) engine will be available. The 1.0-litre TSI engine produces 115 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of peak torque. A 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission will be available for this powerplant. The 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine produces 150 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of peak torque. A 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG transmission are available for this powerplant. The Volkswagen Virtus will replace the Vento and will compete against vehicles such as the Honda City, Hyundai Verna, and Maruti Ciaz.
