Owner unlocks 13 new features in his Volkswagen Virtus sedan [Video]

Volkswagen recently launched their all-new premium mid-size sedan Virtus in India. Virtus competes with cars like Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Honda City and Skoda Slavia in the segment. In comparison to other sedans in the segment (except Slavia), Volkswagen Virtus is the most powerful sedan in its segment. Volkswagen is offering a long list of features with the Virtus and some of them are not present with its competitors as well. There are more features in Virtus that Volkswagen does not offer to its Indian customers. Customer will have to get these features unlocked from a service centre. Here we have a video, where a vlogger talks about all these features that he got unlocked on his Virtus.

The video has been uploaded by TORQUED on his YouTube channel. Volkswagen manufactures Virtus in India and also exports it for international markets. These features are present in the car but are only unlocked for the international variants. Vlogger starts by talking about the key fob. He has unlocked the feature in the car, where it would honk once when the car is locked or would honk twice when it is unlocked. This feature can be activated by accessing settings from the touchscreen infotainment system. The feature is called acoustic confirmation. The sedan showcased in the video is the top-end GT variant.

Next feature he unlocked in his cars were the rear DRLs. Earlier, only the front LED DRLs used to glow when the car turned on. After unlocking this feature, the LED light in the tail lamp would also glow along with the LED DRL at the front. The light in the push button start/stop button of the Virtus would blink when the car is not on. Once the car is turned on, the fully digital instrument cluster of the Virtus would start displaying the steering angle. This is a safety feature as it would give, the driver an idea, if the steering straight or not. Other than this, the vlogger has also unlocked the refuel quantity display in the car. This feature shows how much fuel did the car consume in litres.
