2019 VW Virtus GTS Concept Spy Shots, Redesign, Release Date & Price – The 2019 São Paulo International Motor Show is in full golf swing and Volkswagen is participating in the function to demonstrate not merely the Tarok pickup truck concept, and also this warm subcompact sedan. This one also is technically charged as a concept car, but the generic version will want to look almost the very same. What is it? Virtus is fundamentally a sedan version for Latin America of the extremely preferred Polo supermini available in Europe when “GTS” is a properly watered-down GTI.
When the styling does carefully comply with the very hot hatch, we can not say the same about the engine below the hood. The Polo GTI incorporates a turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine creating 200 horsepower and 320 Newton-yards (236 pound-feet) of torque whilst the Virtus GTS has to make use the familiarized 1.5-liter TSI unit rated at 150 hp and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft). This engine can even be possessed in Europe on the cheaper versions of the Polo.
Yet another big distinction between the two seriously connected models is in the gearbox options. VW provides Euro purchasers the flexibility to pick involving a six-speed manual and a six-speed DSG, although the Virtus GTS will eschew the manual to go auto-only. As shown in the art gallery linked under, there is also a Polo GTS hatchback concept on display in Brazil with identical greasy parts. Remarkably, VW will give you the dynamic duo with all the bells and whistles integrated starting from the start, so there will not be an options listing. Treats will include from a digital device bunch and an eight-inch touchscreen to a rearview camera and bad weather, light sensors.
It is going without the need of declaring the GTS trim will assist as the range-topping version of the Polo hatchback and the Virtus sedan, which are equally generated by VW in Brazil at the Sao Carlos Plant. The two new models go for sale in your area at some point next year.
