Volkswagen is all set to launch its highly anticipated mid-sized SUV in India today – the Volkswagen Taigun. The carline has been developed on the native version (MQB A0 IN) of the Volkswagen Group’s globally renowned MQB (modular transverse matrix) platform. This new ‘made-for-India’ model will support a whole range of the company’s models in the future. Volkswagen Taigun plays a prominent role in the brand’s 2.0 India strategy.

Volkswagen Taigun comes with a longer wheelbase and higher ground clearance to meet the target in India. The distinctive front end emphasizes the vehicle’s affiliation with the brand’s SUV family, while at the same time emphasizing the individuality of the new model. Its long wheelbase makes it roomy for rear seat occupants – a major advantage of the MQB A0 IN platform.
In the cabin, Volkswagen Taigun will include a uniquely shaped 10.25-inch infotainment system, a wireless charger and a sunroof.
There are two engine options to choose from: a 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine and a 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine, both with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Volkswagen Taigun is also high in safety with, among other things, 6 airbags, ABS with EBD.
Once launched, Volkswagen Taigun will compete against the giants such as Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and the newly launched Skoda Kushaq.
