While dealers still have the 2022 Virtus on sale, Volkswagen is gearing up to launch the 2024 generation model. Recently launched in India, the sedan arrives with a facelift and a price cut.
For this, the new model loses several things, some very important, such as disc coolers at the back (being a drum), and electric seats. The model will also lose 12 horsepower, as it will no longer have the TSi 200 engine with 128 horsepower and 20.4 kgfm and the TSI 170 with 116 horsepower and 16.8 kgfm will enter. But despite the loss of power, the new model is gaining in economy.
A six-speed automatic transmission will also be another, similar to that used in the new Polo. There will be a five-speed manual version.
For those who want a more powerful Virtus, they will have the option of a TSi 250 engine available in GTS and Exclusive versions. The end will be a novel in the example. The Exclusive will be the top of the range, with a modern finish and well equipped. The more modern version aims to replace the Jetta 140TSi.
Apart from the revised interior, the new Virtus will get new LED headlights, a new front bumper with a larger air intake and a slim grille with a chrome edge. At the rear, new LED taillights and tinted lenses.
