Last week, Volkswagen launched the Virtus sedan in India, and it comes with a slew of features and technology. The Virtus is the segment's longest sedan, competing against the Hyundai Verna, Skoda Slavia, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and Honda City 5th Gen. In this post, we'll compare VW Virtus Comfortline vs Hyundai Verna S+ to discover what they have to offer and help you make an informed choice while buying.
Being sedans, both are low-slung vehicles. The Virtus carries the familiar VW face seen on its sedans abroad while the Hyundai Verna continues with a design language that is similar to its hatchback cousin - the i20. Dimensions for both the vehicles are as follows
|Model||VW Virtus Comfortline||Hyundai Verna S+|
The Virtus is the clear winner here. It not only has bigger dimensions overall but also has a bigger wheelbase compared to the Verna which in turn lends the Virtus good road presence and spacious interiors.
|Model||Vw Virtus Comfortline||Hyundai Verna S+|
|Engines||1.0 TSI||1.5 MPi/1.5 CRDI|
|Power||114 BHP||113 BHP/113 BHP|
|Torque||178 Nm||144 Nm/250 Nm|
|Gearbox||6 speed Manual||6 speed Manual|
In terms of the petrol engines, the Virtus and Verna are pretty much evenly matched in terms of peak power. However the 1.0 TSI of the Virtus scores on the torque front despite being down on displacement. However the Verna scores on the Virtus by having a diesel engine which will be a popular choice for those who will have a lot of monthly running.
The Volkswagen Virtus Comfortline variant includes 8 speakers, rear parking sensors, remote central locking, dual front Airbags, all seats with 3-point seat belts, electrically adjustable door mirrors, LED headlamps with DRLs, 16-inch steel rims with covers, engine idle start-stop, ESC, ABS, EBD, 17.78 cm Touchscreen infotainment system with wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Verna S Plus has Multi-function Steering Wheel, Power Adjustable Exterior Rear View Mirror, Touch Screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Automatic Climate Control, Engine Start Stop Button, Anti Lock Braking System, Alloy Wheels, Fog Lights - Front, Power Windows Rear, Power Windows Front, and other features.
The VW Virtus comfortline is priced at Rs 11.22 Lakhs (ex-showroom) while the Verna S+ MPi is priced at Rs 9.82 lakhs (ex-showroom). The Verna S+ CRDI is priced at Rs 11 lakhs (ex-showroom).
The Virtus comes across as a fresh choice for someone who is looking to buy a sedan. Its elegant design and a fun engine make it an exceptionally good package.
However, at the same time, the Verna has proven itself over the years as a reliable sedan. The availability of a diesel engine and a competitive price compared to the Virtus do make the Verna a vehicle that is hard to ignore.
