Volkswagen Virtus 1.5 TSI MT Launched At Rs 16.89 Lakh; Taigun GT DSG, GT Plus MT Prices Revealed

Volkswagen India has bolstered the Taigun and Virtus line-ups with the launch of new GT models. Both the Taigun and Virtus get new GT Plus manual variants, while the SUVs also get a new GT DSG variant. The Virtus GT Plus manual is priced at Rs 16.89 lakh (ex-showroom), while the Taigun GT DSG and GT Plus manual are priced at Rs 16.79 lakh and Rs 17.79 (ex-showroom) respectively. This is the first time that the Virtus GT is available with a manual gearbox.

Here are the prices for the new GT variants of the Virtus and Taigun:

The Taigun was offered with a manual, although it was not yet available in a fully equipped GT Plus model. The new Taigun GT DSG also lowers the price of the automatic Taigun GT, with the engine and gearbox combination hitherto only available in the GT Plus model.

Both the Virtus and the Taigun are available in two different lines: Dynamic Line and Performance Line, the latter being the GT models. While the former is powered by a 1.0-litre TSI, the Performance line uses the larger and more powerful 1.5-litre TSI engine developing 148hp and 250Nm.

In addition to the new variants, Volkswagen has also launched the limited edition Edge range for the Taigun and Virtus. Based on the GT Plus variants, the Edge package adds new dark color schemes to the two models: Deep Black Pearl for Virtus and Deep Black Pearl and Carbon Steel Gray Matte for Taigun. The Edge Collection is priced at Rs 17.09 lakh (ex-showroom) for Virtus and Rs 17.99 lakh (ex-showroom) for Taigun. These are the complete prices:
