Volkswagen Taigun Price in India, Launch Date - Updates
Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos Rival Volkswagen Taigun Expected Launch in March,2021 - Check Latest Updates
Volkswagen currently sells the Polo and Vento but it has big plans for our market and that includes a new SUV made for India. It has listed the Taigun SUV on its India site and that indicates that launch is on track for early next year. The Taigun was shown at the Auto Expo in near-production form and it will be its most important launch for India. The Taigun is the second part of the SUV strategy that is followed by the T-Roc and the Tiguan AllSpace. Volkswagen launched both the T-Roc and the Tiguan Allspace early this year and now the Taigun is coming next year. The production version would be revealed and then maybe launched. So we expect the launch to be around March/ April,2021 just after the launch of Skoda SUV rumoured to be called Skoda Kliq in Jan/Feb, 2021
Both the Taigun and the Skoda SUV are based on the MQB A0-IN platform and to achieve costs in order to compete, there have been efforts to ramp up localization in this project. The Taigun would be above 4m and would be around 4.2m in length- that means it would be between the compact SUVs and the midsize SUVs. The interiors would be typical VW quality and it would also have an 8inch touch screen and a fully digital instrument cluster. It will also have connected car tech and sunroof plus more. We expect roomy interiors with space and practicality.
The Taigun will not offer any diesel and will have a 1.5l TSI turbo petrol and also the 1.0 TSI for a lower variant with a 6-speed manual and a DSG. It might not get the torque converter auto that currently, the Polo has. The lower Taigun variants would be manual and no AWD is being offered but to increase mileage and also make it stand out, the top-spec cars could have cylinder deactivation tech to increase fuel economy.
In terms of pricing, VW is keen to take the fight to the current established SUVs hence a starting price of under Rs 10 lakh is expected and that would make the Taigun competitive along with giving the volumes that it needs.
