Let’s see the three differences Taigun will have over the Kushaq in this article on Volkswagen Taigun vs Skoda Kushaq.
Though the Taigun is a sister model to the Kushaq. The design of the Taigun feels more SUV-like due to its more boxy look. The side profile of both the cars looks similar, the front and rear are very different. With a single-piece headlights, a two-slat chrome grill and a chrome inserts on the lower part of the bumper, up-right hood and squared headlamps, the Taigun exudes better road presence than the Kushaq. The Taigun also comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, but the design of the alloys is different from the Kushaq.
