Volkswagen Virtus to be launched in India on 9 June

On June 9, 2022, the long-awaited new Volkswagen Virtus mid-sized car will finally hit the Indian market. The new model’s production has already begun at the company’s manufacturing plant in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. Pre-orders for the new model can be made online or at a Volkswagen dealership.

It’s built on the MQB AO IN platform from the Volkswagen Group, which also underlies the new Taigun mid-size car. It will compete with the Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and Skoda Slavia when it debuts. It’s estimated to cost anything between Rs 10.5 lakh to Rs 18 lakh. The new Volkswagen Virtus sedan will take the place of the Vento sedan, which was recently phased out of production. The new Virtus has a wheelbase of 2,651mm and measures 4,561mm long, 1,752mm wide, and 1,507mm height. The new model will also have a 521-litre cargo space.

There will be two engine options for the new Virtus: a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder TSI and a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder TSI. Only the 1.5L turbo petrol engine will be available in the GT Line model. The 1.0L engine produces 115bhp and 178Nm of torque. There will be two transmission options: a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic. The 4-cylinder engine produces 150bhp and 250Nm, and will be available with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission.

The new Virtus has the clean lines and graceful design that VW is known for. It has a chrome-encrusted single-slat grille, LED projector headlamps with L-shaped LED DRLs, dual-tone alloy rims, chromed door handles, and wrap-around LED taillights. Wild Cherry Red, Candy White, Carbon Steel Grey, Curcuma Yellow, Reflex Silver, and Rising Blue Metallic are the six colour possibilities for the new Volkswagen Virtus.
