Volkswagen Taigun Car Owner Reviews
- The best car there is in this segment, pure driving pleasure, I love its 7sDSG performance, great comfort, love the suspension set up, ride quality, overall the best package and I couldnt have asked for more. In this price point you do get features like ADAS and 360 degree cameras and all in the competitors, but thats never been a deal breaker for me personally and not just that, none of the competitors can come close to Taigun when it comes to performance and ride quality.
- nice car
- Waste of money don't buy this car petrol ka kuva hai Taigun, worst suspension low ground clearance
- An absolute driving pleasure with excellent interiors having good mileage. Proud to be an owner of VW TAIGUN.
- I'm using this car for 8 months and I'm in love with it. The pleasure of driving this German engineered beast is unmatchable with any car in this segment. If you want a driver's car with good space and German build just go for it.
