  • Volkswagen Virtus to launch on June 9.
  • Pre-launch bookings for the Volkswagen Virtus are open officially.
  • To be available in two trims: Dynamic Line and Performance Line.
  • Will share its powertrain and underpinnings with Skoda Slavia.

Volkswagen Virtus, which was revealed in March 2022, is set to go on sale on 9th June 2022. Bookings for the upcoming sedan are already underway online and at dealerships across the nation.

For those who aren’t aware, the Volkswagen Virtus shares its underpinnings and powertrain with the Skoda Slavia. That said, it is also based on the same MQB-A0-IN platform as the Slavia and has a length of 4561mm, a width of 1752mm, and a wheelbase of 2651mm. Under the hood, the Virtus gets 115PS 1.0-liter and 150PS 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engines. While the smaller capacity mill comes with the choice of a 6-speed manual and torque converter automatic, the 1.5-liter gets a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic (DSG) standard.
