The Sound edition is based on the Topline variant of the 1.0-litre TSI models of the vehicles with the Virtus and Taigun receiving a speaker and amplifier system, along with powered front seats. These features were previously introduced in the GT Plus variants of the two models, equipped with the more powerful 1.5-litre TSI engine. Skoda also updated their sedan, the Slavia with these updates. 

Apart from the interior updates, on the outside, the models get badging on the C-pillar and the doors to signify that it’s a special edition. A detail that’s limited to the Taigun is the option to have the roof and wing mirrors in a contrasting colour. Models of the Volkswagen Virtus and Taigun sound edition are available in the choice of 4 colours: - Lava Blue, Carbon Steel Grey, Wild Cherry Red, and Rising Blue.
