Unlike Skoda who launched Slavia Matte Edition with both 1.0L and 1.5L engine options, Volkswagen Virtus Matte Edition is only on offer with its GT Plus trim. In this sense, Virtus Matte is only on offer with a 1.5L turbo petrol engine.
Pricing for VW Virtus Matte Edition based on GT Plus trim with Carbon Steel Grey Matte shade is Rs. 17,61,900 for manual 6-speed variant and Rs. 19,28,900 for automatic 7-speed DSG variants (both prices ex-sh). Both these variants get electrically adjustable front seats as standard fitment, while it is optional with regular Topline and GT Plus trims along with GT Plus Deep Black Pearl shade variants.
Virtus and Taigun gets new features
Speaking of electrically adjustable front seats, this is a new addition for both Virtus and Taigun. Volkswagen is offering this feature as an option with Topline and GT Plus trims. These two trim levels now get footwell illumination with both Taigun and Slavia as standard fitment too.
Apart from the electrically adjustable seats, Volkswagen is offering a subwoofer along with an amplifier to enhance in-cabin audio experience with much richer speaker outputs. The enhanced audio experience is limited to GT Plus trim buyers only. These feature additions are in line with what Skoda offered with Kushaq and Slavia yesterday.
