Drove the VW Taigun & Virtus 1.0 TSI AT back to back: My observations

Driving dynamics of the Virtus felt much better than the Taigun. Loved the way it drives. Coming from an Ameo 1.5 DSG, I was right at home.

BHPian SDx recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Did back-to-back test drive of the Taigun and Virtus 1.0 TSI AT last weekend. Below are my few observations. Most of them might have been already covered here in this thread:

  • Driving dynamics of the Virtus felt much better than the Taigun. Loved the way it drives. Sedan being a sedan, I guess. Coming from an Ameo 1.5 DSG, I was right at home. Sadly, Virtus is too long for me. I am in the market for a sub-4 meter car but somehow the Taigun feels ok.
  • The auto gearbox seemed flimsy while putting it in D, or any mode as a matter of fact when compared to my Ameo. Not sure if anyone else had the same feeling. The SA blamed it on being a test drive vehicle and manhandled by many customers.
  • Manual AC on Highline model was a huge disappointment, reminded me of my Figo which came at 1/3 of this price (approx.). My Ameo Highline bought over 5 years ago has more features than a segment above the Highline. Namely Auto AC, Auto IRVM, All 4 one touch anti-pinch windows. I should get more features on a segment above car with a much higher price tag.
  • Though temp was not that high on that day, the Taigun AC performed better (I mean adequate) than Virtus. Not sure why.
  • Coming back to the IRVM, apart from being manual it is a bit small. Checked with the SA if it was possible for them to install the auto IRVM from Topline. However as per him, its not possible since there are no couplers provided for this update.

Question to current Highline owners – has anyone been able to update the IRVM without voiding the warranty?
