Volkswagen has launched its new sedan ‘Virtus’ in the country at an introductory price of Rs 11.21 lakh, ex-showroom. The range-topping GT Plus trim with the 1.5L TSI EVO motor, on the other hand, is priced at Rs 17.91 lakh, ex-showroom.
There are a total of 6 colour options on offer – Rising Blue Metallic, Curcuma Yellow, Carbon Steel Grey, Reflex Silver, Candy White and Wild Cherry Red. The Volkswagen Virtus is the brand’s second product under the India 2.0 initiative and on the MQB-A0-IN architecture.
The Virtus treats with symphony and cohesiveness, as the dashboard layout is as straightforward as the exterior. A large touchscreen infotainment unit takes the centre stage with AC vents sitting below it. The centre console gets a wireless phone charger here.
The Virtus is also brimmed with features, such as ventilated front seats, 6 airbags, cruise control, LED headlamps, wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, and more. On the safety front, it gets over 40 safety features, including EBD, limited-slip differential, traction control, rear parking sensors and camera.
The Volkswagen Virtus offers two engine choices – 1.0L TSI and 1.5L TSI EVO. The gearbox options include a 6-speed MT, 6-speed AT, and 7-speed DCT.
