With a claimed figure of 16.44kmpl, does the smaller engine with the 6-speed automatic gearbox actually manage it in the real world?

Volkswagen Taigun

Volkswagen’s first compact SUV made for India, the Taigun, comes with two turbocharged petrol engines: a 1-litre unit and the other a 1.5-litre unit. Both get their own automatic transmission options as well along the standard 6-speed MT. In this report, we see if the 1-litre mill with its 6-speed torque converter gearbox can match its claimed mileage figure.

Here are all the important numbers you need to know:

Claimed fuel efficiency


Claimed fuel efficiency (City)


Claimed fuel efficiency (Highway)


The Taigun with the 1-litre turbo-petrol AT was unable to match its claimed fuel efficiency figure in the city but surpassed the claimed figure on the highway.

If you use the Taigun 1-litre turbo-petrol AT primarily in the city, expect it to return an average efficiency of 13kmpl. In case your major usage of the SUV involves travelling outside the city, the overall efficiency should go up by around 2kmpl. For those whose commute is equally split between the city and highway, the fuel efficiency could hover around 14kmpl.
