Which is coming earlier- Skoda Vision IN / Kliq or VW Taigun?
One of the big stars of the 2020 Auto Expo held earlier this year was the Skoda Vision IN / Kliq and the Volkswagen Taigun. Both represent the most important launches ever by Skoda and Volkswagen in India since two SUVs would be made on the new platform which is specifically localized for India along with being designed for Indian tastes. We got to see the cars at the Auto Expo but the Volkswagen Taigun was more near production form while the Vision IN / Kliq was a concept. Interestingly the Skoda has no official name yet and we will know what the production spec version will be called in India around the start of next year. Volkswagen meanwhile has revealed the name already in the form of the Taigun.
Both these SUVs would be launched next year but when is the question. Despite the Volkswagen Taigun already having its name being revealed and also been shown in closer to production spec form, the Skoda Vision IN / Kliq would be coming a bit earlier. By that we still mean that you have to wait till middle of next year when both eventually get launched with a spacing of a month or two. We will most probably see the production version of the Skoda around March next year.
Both SUVs would be launched as petrol only offerings while two turbo petrol engines would be on offer. We expect the 1.0 TSI which currently powers the Skoda Rapid and the VW Vento plus Polo to be there with a six-speed manual as standard. However it could also get the new torque converter auto that also powers the Polo and Vento. Higher up in the range the Skoda Vision IN / Kliq and the Volkswagen Taigun also will have a 1.5l TSI petrol which will get a 7-speed DSG and that will form the top-end of the range.
Based on the MQB A0 platform the Skoda and Volkswagen will have all the usual features plus more to counter the Hyundai Creta and the Kia Seltos. We expect a fully digital instrument cluster with a 10.25 inch screen while the central touch screen would be an 8 inch one. We also expect connected car tech, rear ac vents, panoramic sunroof, rear parking camera, climate control and more.
Volkswagen and Skoda both have changed their pricing strategies and now are pricing their cars aggressively to much success. The new Polo TSI and the Rapid Rider is an example. We also expect Volkswagen and Skoda to price their SUVs along with or maybe lower than the likes of the Creta or Seltos. By that we mean an under Rs 10 lakh starting price and a long variant list touching various price points plus the Skoda might be cheaper than the Volkswagen!
