Volkswagen Virtus to be launched on June 9
The Volkswagen Virtus has been confirmed for a June 9 launch, and we’re excited, because like the Slavia, this car too will add some much-needed life into the mid-size sedan segment. The Virtus was unveiled recently and is set to be VW’s second offering on the MQB-A0-IN platform after the Taigun. Interested customers can pre-book the Virtus.
We already know quite a lot about VW’s upcoming sedan, but let’s take a quick refresher. The Virtus will be offered in two trims — the Dynamic Line and the Performance Line. The Dynamic Line will be offered with the smaller 1-litre TSI engine paired to either a six-speed manual or a torque-converter, while the Performance Line will be powered by the larger 1.5-litre TSI, paired to a 7-speed DSG gearbox. Both trims will bear visual cues to differentiate themselves from each other. Some of the equipment on the Virtus includes a 10-inch touch screen infotainment system, an 8-inch digital cockpit, an eight-speaker sound system, ventilated seats, a cooled glovebox, rear A/C vents, and a conventional sunroof among others. The safety features list includes six airbags, electronic stability control, hill hold, reverse parking camera with guidelines, ISOFIX child anchorages and more.
