VW Virtus has a decent ground clearance making it a viable option for those who have to buy an SUV just because they want a car with high ground clearance. VW had kept this in mind that there are many areas in India and many roads where a car needs to be higher from the ground in order to tackle the speed breakers or terrain conditions. That is why the company offers a great ground clearance of 179 mm. That is above average for a sedan.
