It has been a while since an automobile manufacturer has decided to launch an all-new sedan. Before Virtus, Skoda launched the Slavia. The Virtus has been made keeping Indian road conditions in mind. Because of this, it has a good ground clearance which some people might not like on a sedan. They prefer low-slung sedans with lowered suspension. However, such mods are not at all practical for Indian roads.

In the render, we can see the GT line variant of the Virtus. The rendering has been done by Archit Kishore. He has blacked out the chrome and painted bits of the bumper. So, it is now finished in black which does look a lot more aggressive. Moreover, the fog lamps now have a yellow lens.

The headlamps in the front are the same as the regular Virtus but they have been given a smoked effect. There are different alloy wheels on the sides and the door handles are also blacked out. Also, there are blacked-out side skirts present that add to the sporty appeal.

Virtus will be offered with two petrol engines. Both are turbocharged and gets a direct injection. The 1.0-litre engine is a three-cylinder unit that produces 115 PS of max power and 178 Nm of peak torque. It will be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

Then we have the 1.5-litre TSI which is a four-cylinder engine. It produces 150 PS of max power and 250 Nm of peak torque. This engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This engine also comes with ACT or Active Cylinder Technology. So, under less load, the system can shut down some of the cylinders to save fuel.

Both the engines and the gearboxes are shared with VW and Skoda vehicles such as Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Slavia and Kushaq. In fact, the 1.5 TSI engine makes Slavia and Virtus the most powerful mid-size sedan in the segment.

Prices and variants

The prices of the Virtus have not yet been revealed. However, we expect it to be priced somewhere around the Skoda Slavia. However, the variants and the feature list could be different for the Virtus. The new mid-size sedan will be offered in two trims. There will be Dynamic Line and Performance Line. The Dynamic Line will further be divided into some variants and under Performance Line, there will be the GT variants.
