Volkswagen’s yearly interview has once again teased us with some interesting news. This moment about, it’s not a brand-new car launch, yet new GT versions for the Virtus and Taigun. They are an extension of the currently existing GT variations which are now categorised under Sport Chrome and Edge. All 3 obtain various colour treatment with passed out inserts for the Sport trim, chrome inserts for the Chrome trim and unique tones for the Side trims. Allow’s take a more detailed check out these new variations:

Taigun and Virtus GT Plus Chrome

The Chrome therapy, offered throughout the lineup, brings chrome inserts to the exterior of the Taigun. There are no blacked out fronts lights below, rather a lot of glossy chrome aspects on the grille, bumper, roof rails and also the alloys. Essentially, it’s the Taigun and Virtus we are already accustomed to seeing on our roads.

Taigun and Virtus GT Sport

Formerly, the GT tag was restricted to the 1.5-litre engines. Yet VW has currently expanded the appeal of the GT versions by making the 1-litre turbo-petrol engine offered with the GT Line under the Sporting activity trim.

The Sports trim brings blacked out aspects to the headlights, grille, bumper, roof covering rails, red brake callipers and also all-black interiors with red comparison sewing, giving it a sneaky appearance. This therapy can be had with both 1.5-litre turbo-petrol in the GT And also variants and the 1-litre turbo-petrol engines in the GT Line variations.

The GT Line and GT And also Sport variations obtain small visual distinctions. While both get black therapy, the red inserts are restricted to the Sport variants only. The GT Line just obtains ‘GT Line’ badging on the fender and on the tailgate, however they do obtain an all-black cabin therapy with red inserts.

The Virtus GT And also Sport gets the exact same treatment as the Taigun with black aspects replacing the chrome inserts. However, the Virtus GT And also Sporting activity is still an idea and the launch of its production-spec is anticipated in the 2nd fifty percent of 2024.

Taigun and Virtus GT Edge

The GT Side therapy, offered with both the Sporting activity and Chrome trims, continues with its existing unique Matte Edition and Deep Black Pearl tone. These are available with both the engine alternatives offered with the Taigun.

We don’t anticipate a significant modification in prices when VW releases the new versions for the Taigun next month, considered that these are essentially the same versions that are simply categorised differently now with various cosmetic elements. Nevertheless, the entrance right into the GT versions will now be more inexpensive, thanks to the 1-litre engine being offered in the GT Line.

When it comes to the new Virtus GT versions, its launch is planned for the second fifty percent of this year. The Taigun is presently priced from Rs 11.69 lakh (ex-showroom), while the Virtus starts from Rs 11.55 lakh (ex-showroom).
