Volkswagen Taigun SUV launch on September 23

Volkswagen officially announces Taigun in India on September 23. Pre-bookings for Taigun were opened earlier this month. The compact SUV is to take the fight to well-established rivals like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier, MG Hector Plus.

Taigun being manufactured in the Volkswagen plant in Chakan, near Pune has its own impact. It is a crucial part of the German brand's India 2.0 strategy. Based on the MQB A0 IN platform, a derivative of the popular MQB architecture, Taigun is being lauded as an SUV that is tailor-made for the Indian customer while still retaining the Volkswagen build quality. It will be available with two TSI petrol engine options. The smaller engine will be available with a manual gearbox and a 6-speed automatic unit will be there as an option. The larger 1.5-liter motor will come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and there will be a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox as well.

The outer design of the Volkswagen SUV gets smart design elements like a clean front grille, dollops of chrome all around, 17-inch alloy wheels and a stretched-out LED tail light scheme. While, stepping inside the car is decently loaded with support for wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, sunroof, ten-inch main infotainment screen, eight-inch all-digital driver display, among others. Volkswagen has already started the process of previews for customers at select locations. The company is hoping that the vehicle carves out a space for itself in a crowded yet lucrative space in the mid-size SUV segment.
