Design and Colour Variants

The new Volkswagen Taigun is a typical Volkswagen car and it looks identical to other more expensive VW cars like the T-Roc, Tiguan and the Tiguan All Space. The VW Taigun doesn’t have a butch appeal but it does have an understated elegance. At the front, it features LED headlights with integrated LED DRLs and a chrome embellished grille along with the new VW logo. The SUV has body cladding all around and it gets skid plates at the front and at the rear along with a lot of chrome accents. It runs on 17-inch machined-cut alloy wheels and at the rear, it gets unique LED taillights with a connecting appeal. The VW Taigun will be available in five colour options and this SUV’s marketing shade is Yellow.

The upcoming new Volkswagen Taigun will be loaded with a ton of features. However, there won’t be any segment-first offerings. For instance, the VW Taigun will get a large 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity that too wirelessly. It even gets some pre-loaded useful apps, however, it misses out on the connected car technology. Some other features of the car include a standard electric sunroof, 6 speaker sound system, wireless smartphone charger, automatic climate control, cruise control, auto-dimming IRVM, a fully digital instrument cluster and many more.

The new Volkswagen Taigun gets a host of safety features too.

However, it misses out on a 360-degree camera and in terms of features, it doesn’t get ventilated seats too.
