Volkswagen India has announced that all variants of the Virtus and Taigun will now come standard with six airbags. This move expands the carmaker’s lineup with a greater selection of German-engineered and safer products.

The VW Taigun compact SUV and the Virtus sedan have already earned impressive five-star ratings in the Global NCAP safety crash tests. Both vehicles, built on the brand’s MQB-A0-IN platform, have demonstrated exceptional performance in terms of adult and child occupant protection. Additionally, crash tests have deemed their body shells stable, showcasing their ability to withstand high impact loads.

The safety suite also includes features like a seatbelt reminder system, pre-tensioners with load limiters, ABS with EBD, ESC, and rear parking sensors. Standardizing six airbags across the portfolio aligns with the government’s efforts to enhance car safety standards in India.

Volkswagen has sold over one lakh five-star GNCAP safety-rated India 2.0 cars, with the Taigun contributing 61 percent to this achievement.

With this safety measure now available in lower trims, more families are likely to choose a safer car automatically.
