Volkswagen is set to launch yet another special edition version of the Taigun along with the Virtus named the ‘Sound Edition’. The new variant will be launched tomorrow, on November 21, and follows the launch of the Taigun GT Edge Trail Edition introduced recently. Going by the name, the Taigun Sound Edition and Virtus Sound Edition are expected to cater to audiophiles by offering an enhanced audio system over the standard music system in the cars.

Mechanically, we expect both vehicles to be identical to the standard variants and will continue to offer two engine options. The 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor making 113 bhp and 178 Nm of torque, and the 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol motor churning out 148 bhp and 250 Nm. As standard, both engine options get a 6-speed manual with the option of a 6-speed torque converter on the 1.0-litre motor. While the larger 1.5-litre engine is available with the 7-speed DSG gearbox.
