The German carmaker is prepping up to face the rivals like Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos with its high voltage Volkswagen Taigun. It is going to be quite a significant launch this year for Volkswagen. The model is all set to compete with the luxurious mid-size SUV cars.
Exteriors of Volkswagen Taigun
The concept of Volkswagen Taigun has been revealed just ahead of the Auto Expo 2020. Therefore, it won’t be wrong to expect minimal changes in the production form of the car. But what we can expect is a generous amount of chrome below and between the LED headlights. There will be stylish two-tone alloy wheels. A distinctive LED light bar connects the LED tail-lights as well.
Interiors of Volkswagen Taigun
The interiors too, will be almost similar in the production stage as they were during the concept form. There will be a multi-layered dashboard. At its centre, a huge infotainment system will be there. The steering wheel will be flat bottomed and chunky. An instrument cluster will also be there behind the steering wheel.
The overall impression of the interior is good. The finishing has been done carefully. There will be ample space inside the cabin. The buttons and switches are definitely durable and robust. The cabin can get a bit squeezy if three people sit together.
Engine and gearbox options for Taigun
The model will come equipped with a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine. The 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox supplies power to the front wheels. A manual gearbox option is also there. Volkswagen is also considering to offer a factory-fit CNG option to the riders.
Price and competitors of Taigun
The main competitor of VW Taigun will be Skoda Kushaq. The MQB AO IN platform underpins both the models. They both will have a 1.5-litre TSI engine. Taigun will be priced keeping in mind the competition it gets from the likes of Nissan Kicks, the Kia Seltos, the Hyundai Creta etc.
