    Volkswagen Virtus was launched in India less than three months ago, and the MQB-A0-IN platform based compact sedan has already been quite a successful product in its segment for the German brand in India. Following the footsteps of the Taigun, Volkswagen has now delivered as many as 5,000 units of the Virtus in India. Volkswagen has elected to implement this success in other emerging markets too, and after launching the made-in-India Taigun in Mexico - which was rebadged as the T-Cross - Volkswagen has now launched the made-in-India Virtus Compact sedan in Mexico too.

In India, the compact sedan is offered with two engine options. There's a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, which develops 113 bhp and 178 Nm torque, and a larger 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which churns out 148 bhp and 250 Nm torque. The former is paired to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, while the latter gets a 7-speed DSG automatic.

    In Mexico, the Virtus gets differently designed headlamps.

    In terms of design, the Mexican version of the Virtus gets different headlamps than the Indian model, but the overall design remains the same. The Virtus is loaded with features like a 10-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, a wireless phone charger, ventilated front seats, automatic climate control, rear air-con vents, and an electric sunroof. The Virtus also gets a class-leading 521 litres of boot space, which can be further expanded to 1,050 litres by folding down the second-row seat.
