After showcasing the new variants of the very successful Virtus and Taigun last month, Volkswagen India has now finally announced the prices of these variants. The Virtus was the only Volkswagen India 2.0 model without a manual transmission paired to the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine but that is not the case any more as the price for the new Virtus GT Plus MT is Rs 16.89 lakh. The Taigun GT DSG and GT Plus MT have also been launched at Rs 16.79 lakh and Rs 17.79 lakh, respectively.

The 'GT Edge Limited Collection' stretches to the Taigun but not just with a 'Deep Black Pearl' paint scheme but also an additional 'Carbon Steel Grey Matte finish' on offer.
Commenting on the announcement, Ashish Gupta, Brand Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars India said, "For over a decade, Indian customers have aspired to own the much sought-after GT badge that has been a symbol of unparalleled performance and power, commanding respect. With its strong legacy of fun-to-drive, the GT badge was introduced on the Performance Line (1.5l TSI EVO engine) variants of the Taigun & Virtus.
