Volkswagen Introduces Virtus GT Plus MT Variant, Expanding Powertrain Options

Volkswagen has expanded the powertrain options for the Virtus 1.5 GT sedan by introducing a new variant with a six-speed manual gearbox. Previously, the Virtus GT Plus was only available with a 7-speed DCT gearbox in a single fully-loaded trim. With the addition of the manual transmission option, Volkswagen aims to make the 1.5 TSI engine more accessible to a wider audience.

This update brings the Virtus in line with its sister car, the Skoda Slavia, which also offers the same powertrain options. The six-speed manual gearbox provides an engaging driving experience, allowing enthusiasts to have more control over gear shifts and further personalize their driving experience.

By offering the Virtus GT Plus with a manual transmission, Volkswagen provides customers with a broader choice when it comes to selecting their preferred transmission type. This move enables a wider range of drivers to experience the performance and efficiency of the 1.5 TSI engine, enhancing the appeal of the Virtus sedan.

Whether drivers prefer the convenience of an automatic transmission or the involvement of a manual gearbox, the Virtus GT Plus now caters to both preferences, offering a well-rounded package with its powerful engine and dynamic driving characteristics.

Volkswagen Expands Transmission Options for Taigun GT Variants

Volkswagen has introduced new transmission options for the Taigun GT variants, offering customers more choices to suit their preferences. The Taigun 1.5 TSI, which was previously available exclusively with a DSG automatic gearbox in the top-spec GT Plus trim, now also comes with a manual gearbox option in the same trim. This addition provides drivers with the flexibility to enjoy a more engaging driving experience with manual gear shifts.

Furthermore, Volkswagen has extended the availability of the DSG automatic gearbox to the lower GT trim, which was previously only offered with a manual gearbox. This change broadens the options for customers who prefer the convenience and seamless shifting of an automatic transmission, making the more powerful 1.5 TSI engine accessible to a wider audience.

With the introduction of these new transmission options, Volkswagen aims to enhance the appeal of the Taigun GT variants and cater to a broader range of customer preferences. Whether drivers prefer the control of a manual gearbox or the convenience of an automatic transmission, they can now choose the Taigun GT variant that best suits their needs.
