Starting with the dimensions, the car has a length of 4.2m with a wheelbase of 2.65m. It features a dominant front which makes it much bolder and muscular, thereby giving it a sporty SUV stance. The car is built on the MQB A0 IN platform and will be powered by a TSI petrol engine mated to a 7-speed DSG. Reportedly, the vehicle has the ability to hit 0-100 kmph in just 9.9 seconds while achieving a top speed of 183 kmph.
The main attractions of the Volkswagen Taigun include LED headlamps with DRLs, chrome-accented front grille, alloy wheels, and an LED strip at the rear spanning the entire width. The car also boasts a signature LED tail-lamp and a panoramic sunroof. Inside the cabin, the vehicle offers leatherette seats, a digital instrument cluster with a touchscreen infotainment system. The mid-size SUV will also come with six airbags and ESC (electronic stability control), among other interesting features.
