The Volkswagen Virtus is available in four variants – Comfortline, Highline, Topline, and GT Plus.
The Volkswagen Virtus was launched in India on 9 June, 2022.
The Volkswagen Virtus can be had in two petrol engines – 1.0-litre petrol and 1.5-litre petrol. The former has an output of 114bhp and 178Nm of torque and is coupled with a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 1.5-litre petrol engine is a more potent offering that generates 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. The motor is mated only to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox while a manual gearbox is given a miss for this powertrain.
Exterior and Design
The front of the Volkswagen Virtus gets a clean design with two horizontal chrome slats that extend up to the LED headlamps which also get integrated DRLs. Further down, the fog lamps get a vertical housing while the chrome insert on the bumper gives the Virtus an appealing look.
At the side are dual-tone alloy wheels. Notably, the top-spec GT trim gets gloss black alloy wheels and a ‘GT’ badge on the front fender. At the rear, the split tail lamps get a smoke effect and the ’Virtus’ lettering is placed more prominently at the centre of the boot.
Interior and Features
The cabin of the Volkswagen Virtus is dominated by a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, wireless charger, ventilated front seats, automatic climate control, cruise control, an electric sunroof, a digital instrument cluster, and leather upholstery.
On the safety front, the Virtus is equipped with six airbags, multi-collision brakes, a reverse parking camera, and electronic stability control.
