Volkswagen Virtus Overview

2022 Volkswagen Virtus Overview

Volkswagen Virtus is currently on sale in the South American markets and is up for a facelift. This global facelift will make its way to the Indian markets very soon as one of the sedan offerings by Volkswagen, replacing the Volkswagen Vento which has been on offer from the past 12 years. It would be pitched against Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and its own stablemate, Skoda Slavia.

What do we expect?
We expect Volkswagen to pitch it as a premium offering with features class apart when compared to the first cousin, Skoda Slavia. It would be based on the MQB A0 platform with proportions similar to that of the Skoda Slavia with all the bells and whistles. The sedan will compete with mid size SUVs as well in terms of pricing.

The upcoming Volkswagen Virtus is expected to be equipped witth a 1.0 TSi (turbo petrol engime) with a manual or torque convertor gearbox and the 1.5 TSi motor (turbo petrol) with a manual or a DSG gearbox pitched as the GT line variant. The same engine options are available in the VW Taigun but would be available in a different state of tune in the VW Virtus. It would miss out upon a diesel powertrain due to the BS6 emission norms. Now this is something that rivals like the Verna and City offer.
