The Volkswagen Taigun has received over 45,000 reservations in a year since its launch. With this, the brand has also delivered more than 28,000 units of the SUV since September 2021.
Volkswagen offers the Taigun in four variants: Comfortline, Highline, Topline, and GT Plus. The key highlights of the SUV include LED projector headlights, LED rear lights, digital instrument cluster, 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, electric sunroof, wireless charging pad, cooled glovebox, six airbags, TPMS, hill hold control, and connected car features.
It gets two powertrain options: a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine producing 114bhp and 178Nm of torque and a 1.5-litre, inline-four, turbocharged petrol unit that makes 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. While the former is mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, the latter is paired with a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic unit.
Moreover, the Taigun recently secured a five-star rating for adult and child occupants in the Global NCAP crash test. The model was tested under the updated Global NCAP test protocols along with the Skoda Kushaq. The Volkswagen Taigun competes against the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, MG Astor, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, and Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder in the Indian market.
