Volkswagen Taigun production model rendered

Volkswagen’s upcoming five-seater CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle), the Taigun, has been digitally rendered. First showcased at the Sao Paolo Motor Show in October 2012, the Taigun concept featured design cues from other Volkswagen hatchbacks like the Up! and the Golf, and is expected to be unveiled in its production avatar by the end of this year.

The rendering shows that the Taigun will feature short overhangs at the front and rear. The front fascia features sharp headlamps with LED DRLs and a chrome grille with two vertical slats, styled in line with the German manufacturer’s current design philosophy. The front and rear bash plates, roof rails and the plastic cladding give the Taigun a rugged appeal. The Taigun will be available in both three-door and five-door variants.

The Volkswagen Taigun will be powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-pot engine, churning out around 110 horsepower. Volkswagen claims that the Taigun would be capable of getting from 0 to 100kmph in 9.2 seconds, with the top speed limited to 185kmph. The fuel efficiency is claimed to be 22.2 kmpl over the combined cycle.

The Taigun will be available in both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive variants. Prices of the entry-level Taigun are expected to start around EUR 15,000 (Rs 10.46 lakh). Globally, it will rival other compact crossovers like the Ford EcoSport, Nissan Juke , Citroen Cactus and the Renault Captur.
