 Volkswagen Virtus Tyres & Wheels Detail - All You Need To Know

With brands like Volkswagen and Skoda, people still believe that sedans have not lost their charm in the market. In the era of the 90s, when someone buys a sedan, it automatically exhibited that the person has achieved big in life. Though SUVs and crossovers are increasingly taking over sedans today, there have been solid cars that have always created a big difference with their style, features and performance and stand out from the crowd. Volkswagen Virtus, the successor to the popular Vento, is one such car that carries forward the same traits.

The Virtus was recently launched in the Indian market at a price range of Rs. 11.22 - 17.92 Lakh (ex-showroom). The sedan is completely different from its predecessor with large dimensions, bigger space inside and more power under the hood. Volkswagen cars have always catered for a different class of buyers who are fond of classic-looking sedans, and Virtus, with its Jetta-Esque front fascia and rear profile similar to Audi A4, exhibit the same. The car visually appears bold with a larger air dam, slim grille, chrome front wing and glossy black accents, flanked by sleek LED headlights with integrated LED DRLs and LED foglamps.

The side profile gets a set of elegant 16-inch dual-tone or glossy all-black alloy wheels, depending on the variant. The rear features a pair of signature LED tail lights, beefy underbody cladding, and chrome wing to enhance the sporty appearance. The sedan is available in six colours - Candy White, Wild Cherry Red, Carbon Steel Grey, Reflex Silver, Curcuma Yellow, and Rising Blue Metallic. The vehicle is the longest and the widest in its class in terms of dimensions.

The interiors are well-laid out with a spacious cabin, with a dual-tone dashboard and red highlights, giving it a unique look. The premium leatherette seats with contrast stitching convey the performance-oriented design, while the unique chrome detailing and premium materials shows a refined elegance. 

The Virtus gets better features in every measurable way than its forerunner Vento. The car gets a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, powered by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, fully-digital instrument cluster aka virtual cockpit, wireless phone charger, automatic climate control, ventilated front seats, electric sunroof, rear ac vents, 60:40 rear split seat functionality, push-button engine start/stop, and cruise control, among others. The massive 521L of boot space can be doubled-up by tumbling the rear seat.

In the safety department, the Virtus comes equipped with over 40 features, including six airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, tyre pressure deflation warning, multi-collision braking, hill hold control, brake disc wiping, automatic headlamps, and Park Distance control with a rear-view camera, among others.

The Volkswagen Virtus gets the same set of engines working in Taigun and Slavia; the 1.0L turbo-petrol unit that pumps out 115PS and 178Nm torque, and the 1.5L turbo-petrol motor producing 150PS and 250Nm torque. Where the former is paired with a standard 6-speed MT, and an optional 6-speed AT, the bigger 1.5L engine can be synchronized with a 7-speed DSG transmission only. The powerful engine also comes with Active Cylinder Deactivation Technology that shuts down two cylinders automatically during low-stress conditions for enhancing fuel efficiency.

The Virtus is available in four trims and six graceful body paints. The sedan is pitched against Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and sibling Skoda Slavia in the market. So, if you are planning to buy the new Virtus and looking for information about its tyre and wheels, the below information will help you.
