German automobile manufacturer Volkswagen has unveiled the special-edition Virtus GT Edge in a new paint scheme. Thus far, the Volkswagen Virtus GT Edge was available in a Deep Black Pearl colour, but now you have an all-new option to choose from, which is called Carbon Steel Matte Grey. Earlier, this Matte colour was exclusive to the Taigun SUV, with a price starting at Rs 17.99 lakh. Meanwhile, the Virtus GT Edge with a Deep Black Pearl paint scheme commands a starting price of Rs 17.09 lakh for the manual variant. Expect the new shade to be priced marginally higher than the Virtus GT Plus MT, which currently retails at Rs 16.89 lakh, although the manufacturer has not yet disclosed the pricing details. All prices mentioned are ex-showroom. Prospective buyers can make their reservation for the Virtus GT Edge Carbon Steel Matte Grey on the company's official website, with deliveries slated to begin in October this year.
At an ex-showroom price of Rs 16.89 lakh, the Volkswagen Virtus GT Plus slots below the GT Edge. In spite of the new colour addition, the Virtus GT Edge continues to get LED headlamps, a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, connected car tech, cruise control, a rearview camera, tyre pressure monitoring system, hill start assist, and ABS with EBD.
