The Taigun is expected to be launched in India soon and now, ahead of its official India launch, its final production-spec version has been spied on test in the country. Let's have a look at the images and new details.
The upcoming Volkswagen Taigun was recently spied undergoing a test on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway near Mumbai in Maharashtra. The SUV was devoid of camouflage and it was finished in white colour. The VW Taigun will be a mid-size SUV from the house of this German car manufacturer. Just like most other VW cars, the new VW Taigun looks elegant but this SUV also gets a lot of chrome accents as it highly appeals the Indian car buyers.
The new Volkswagen Taigun will share its underpinnings and mechanicals with its cousin - Skoda Kushaq. The Taigun will get two BS6 compliant turbo petrol mills. The first one will be a 1.0-litre TSI that will churn out 115 PS of power and 175 Nm of peak torque. The other one will be a 1.5-litre TSI that will churn out 150 PS of power and 250 Nm of peak torque. Both the motors will come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and while the 1.0-litre TSI will also get a 6-speed AT, the 1.5-litre TSI will get VW's 7-speed DSG.
Volkswagen has not yet officially revealed the interior of the production-spec version of the Taigun. However, we do know that it will come loaded with features up to the brim.
