Volkswagen Virtus

Volkswagen believes that the reason sedans are on the down low in India, is because of a lack of good options. Sister brands Volkswagen and Skoda have decided to change this scenario and revive the mid-size sedan segment in India and launch the brand-new Virtus in India tomorrow. The complete price list and variants will be launched tomorrow, but before that, let’s take a look at what we know so far-

The Volkswagen Virtus sedan is likely to be offered in three trims – Comfortline, Highline and Topline where only the base Comfortline trim will not be offered with an automatic gearbox. 

Engine

The Virtus will be offered with a choice of a 1-litre engine producing 115 bhp and a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine producing 150 bhp of power. The latter gets cylinder deactivation technology that shuts down two cylinders under light load to improve fuel economy. Speaking of transmission options, the 1-litre can be had with a 6-speed manual and automatic, while the 1.5-litre is exclusively available with a 7-speed DSG.
