Volkswagen has been planning multiple product launches in the country this year. Where some will be old products coming in new avatars, others would be completely new products which the country has never experienced before. In this article, we will be discussing one such product expected to be a Volkswagen Rs 12 Lakh SUV, which the company is calling the Taigun and has already been teased on the brand’s official website.
The design of the Volkswagen Taigun is one thing which the VW brand is putting a lot of focus on. The brand is calling the Taigun bold and sporty-looking. Big full-LED headlight unit and futuristic LED tail-lamp running across the rear do give Taigun a bold and sporty look.
In terms of other elements, the alloy wheels look similar in design to what we get to see on the Tiguan and T-Roc with minor change done to the design. Even the front grille is similar to the one on the Tiguan.
The interior on the Taigun is expected to be sporty-looking too. The use of contrasting colours is expected on the dashboard to give the Tiguan a modern look, intended to attract young customers. On the inside, the Taigun is expected to get a fully-digital instrument cluster which the company is claiming to be futuristic-looking. Moreover, a big touchscreen infotainment system and sunroof are also expected in the Taigun.
The Taigun will be based on the MQB A0 IN platform which the brand has specially built for the country. The platform will also be seen underpinning the upcoming Skoda Kushaq, Skoda Rapid and VW Vento. The platform will be indigenously-built, allowing the brand to keep the pricing very competitive. Moreover, since most of the parts will be built in the country as well, the after-sales service of the brand will also be heavily affected in a positive way.
The Taigun would rival some fierce competitors like the segment-leading Hyundai Creta, the Kia Seltos, the MG Hector and the Tata Harrier. If Volkswagen manages to keep the pricing right, it could take the market by storm as the design is bound to attract many customers.
