While no details have been revealed so far, we also expect a few visual changes like special Sound Edition badging on the inside and outside, as well as new seat upholstery. No mechanical changes will be made to either of the two cars. Volkswagen offers the Taigun and Virtus with two engine options – a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine making 113 hp of max power and 178 Nm of peak torque, along with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol motor generating 148 hp and 250 Nm.
A 6-speed manual transmission is offered as standard across both engine options, while the smaller TSI motor gets an optional 6-speed torque converter auto and the larger engine is available with an optional 7-speed DSG.
Stay tuned to TOI Auto for the Volkswagen Virtus, Taigun Sound Edition launch tomorrow.
