The all-new VW Taigun ‘SUVW’ has been launched with a starting price of Rs 10.5 Lakh. The car has been made available with two broad variants, with further division of sub-variants under them. These are the Performance Line and the Dynamic Line. Here’s the list of all the variants:
- 1.0L Comfortline TSI MT: 10.49 Lakh
- 1.0L Highline TSI MT: 12.80 Lakh
- 1.0L Highline TSI AT: 14.09 Lakh
- 1.0L Topline TSI MT: 14.56 Lakh
- 1.0L Topline TSI AT: 15.90 Lakh
- 1.5L TSI GT Line MT: 14.99 Lakh
- 1.5L TSI GT Plus AT: 17.50 Lakh
The car is decently powerful as well, with the 1.0L engine producing 115HP/175NM, while the more powerful 1.5L producing 150HP/250NM. A 6-speed manual is common across both variants, though as for the automatic variants, the 1.0L variant gets a 6-speed torque converter, while the 1.5L variant gets a 7-speed dual clutch automatic.
The car is quite feature-rich as well, with the top variant getting a 10″ infotainment system, an 8″ digital instrument cluster with a very Audi-esque virtual cockpit MID, leather seats, climate control, a sunroof, etc. There are even safety features like 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, Hill Hold functionality, and a parking camera.
On the exterior, the car has a 2-slat grille, complete with chrome inserts, LED headlamps with DRL’s, LED tail lights, a lip spoiler on the rear, and the car also has 17-inch alloys. The car is somewhat similar to the Kushaq… or shall I say the Kushaq was born off of the Taigun. well, that’ll be an understatement. What is likeably different here is the Taigun is a more minimalistic in nature.
The car will be available in 5 colours at launch- Curcuma Yellow, Reflex Silver, Carbon Steel Grey, Wild Cherry Red and Candy White. With a whole host of competitors pitted against it, it’ll be exciting to see how it pans out for the Taigun!
