Volkswagen is almost ready with its C-segment SUV, the Taigun. We expect it to launch sometime soon, making it a new contender for the C-SUV segment crown held by the Hyundai Creta for quite some time now. With the launching of the product expected soon, the Volkswagen Taigun has been spotted undergoing testing. The car has been spotted near the Chakan Plant as well as on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. In today’s article, we will discuss what we get to know from the spy shots as well as what we know about the Volkswagen Taigun so far.
What can we get to know from the spy shots?
Both the cars look really similar at a quick glance. However, minor differences start appearing when looked closely at. First, let’s discuss the similarities. Both the cars get a similar fog light setup. Both of them get the same roof rails and rear washer-wiper. Also, both the cars get body-coloured door handles. Now, coming to the differences, the car in the front gets stylized wheel caps, whereas the car behind it gets alloy wheels. Also, both cars have a different tyre profile. The car in the front is sitting on MRF WANDERERs.
Looking at all the differences, it seems that the car in the front could be a Comfortline or Highline variant, whereas the car behind it would most probably be the Highline Plus variant. Also, one of the cars can be seen sporting the TSI badging at the rear. Apart from this, a third car was also spotted in camouflage. Looking at the black wheels, it seems that it could be the top-of-the-line GT variant of the car.
What do we know about the car so far?
The Volkswagen Taigun, similar to the Skoda Kushaq, has been developed keeping in mind the requirements of Indian customers as well as the Indian conditions. The Taigun will also be based on the brand’s MQB A0 IN platform which has been specifically tweaked for India. The new C-segment SUV will get elements like continuous LED tail-lamp, 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, digital instrument cluster (Digital Cockpit), wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, an electric sunroof and many others in order to give a tough fight to the competition, especially cars like Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. The car will carry forward Volkswagen’s GT trend. The Taigun will get a GT variant which will sit at the top in its variant lineup. The Taigun will come powered by 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engines.
