The Taigun has been highlighted as a ‘Made in India and Made for India’. It claims to provide a mix of all advanced and popular features in an outsized section of consumers. It will share the platform with the recently launched Skoda Kushaq. However, it guarantees to be a unique model and shares no similarities with its Czech cousin model.
First thing, the all-new Volkswagen Taigun midsize SUV is not the biggest of the midsize SUVs. It is slightly shorter and narrower than a Hyundai Creta. But, this does not prevent itself from calling itself one of the most stylish and modern models.
The Volkswagen Taigun offers 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, a two-slat grille with chrome inserts, fog lights, roof rails, a chrome insert for the front and rear bumpers, LEDs with integrated DRLs, LED tail lights etc.
Interior and Features
Volkswagen Taigun is equipped with an electrical roof, a dual-tone theme, a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a three-spoke handwheel, lowered front seats, an eight-inch fully-digital instrument cluster, and wireless charging.
The model is supplied with seat-belt reminder, six airbags, TPMS, rear parking sensors, and ABS with EBD in terms of safety options.
Engine and Specifications
Buyers can have two petrol engine choices- a 1.0 TSI with a three-cylinder and 114bhp or 178 Nm, and the 1.5-liter TSI four-cylinder motor with 148bhp or 250 Nm. The one-litre has a six-speed manual. The 1.5 gets a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG.
The Taigun 1.5’s highlight is of the DSG automatic case. In ‘D’ mode, the DSG does a great job of shifting up smoothly. But, as soon as you change it to ‘S’, everything changes. The engine makes a weird noise too.
Interior Styling and Luxury
The Taigun’s interior style is similar to VW’s other premium models, which is an excellent factor. It has a large touchscreen infotainment system that visually attracts a big T-Roc, chrome highlights, and light-weight coloured materials wrapped around the dash. Just like the exterior, the cabin is solid.
The technology of the all-new Volkswagen Taigun midsize SUV is spot on. There are door pads, a perfect space to store your belongings, and an armrest. It also contains vast front seats. Even the headroom is well furnished. Access to the rear seats is very easy because of the wide entrance and the door gap.
The Volkswagen Taigun has the biggest wheel-base. This can be easily seen once you are sitting in the second row. There is a good amount of legroom, even with the front seat positioned to a 6-footer’s preference.
VW has not formally discharged Taigun’s boot capability. However, it is expected to be similar to the Skoda Kushaq that is rated at 385-litres. It would not be a giant boot in its category. However, it offers 60:40 split-folding seats, a deep goods space with a reasonably low loading height, and a modest boot house which is a good point.
Unique Color Variants
Volkswagen Taigun has been presented on the market in six distinct color choices. These are- Black, Blue, Grey, Red, White, and Yellow.
Volkswagen Taigun has the largest wheel-base.
The cabin is very well equipped. It offers good space and cushioning. The red-coloured theme makes the Volkswagen Taigun more premium.
The all-new Taigun midsize SUV can compete with Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks, Skoda Kushaq, MG Astor and Renault Duster.
Is it Ideal for you?
So, do you want to buy a Volkswagen Taigun for yourself? If you like a giant and bold SUV or somebody who wants a five-seat SUV, then honestly, Taigun will not be the correct decision for you. The Taigun is a comfortable 4-seater SUV with a stylish interior and exterior, but you might be disappointed. So compare other variants and choose wisely.
