It features a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, connected car technology, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an 8-inch digital instrument cluster, red ambient lighting, ventilated seats, an electric sunroof, wireless charging, cruise control, rear AC vents, LED headlamps and tail lamps. 

Passenger safety will be taken care of by up to six airbags, ABS with EBD, a rear parking camera, electronic stability control, hill hold control, tyre pressure monitoring system, electronic differential locking, and traction control.

The 1.5-litre engine gets Active Cylinder Tech (ACT), which can shut down two (of its four cylinders) under minimum stress to maximise fuel efficiency. That’s why its manual and automatic variants are more fuel-efficient than the smaller 1-litre engine.

The Taigun is available in five colours: Curcuma Yellow, Wild Cherry Red, Candy White, Reflex Silver, and Carbon Steel Grey. 

It gets a standard warranty of 4 years/1 lakh kilometres, which can be extended up to 7 years. The Volkswagen Taigun rivals the Hyundai CretaKia SeltosNissan KicksRenault DusterSkoda KushaqMG Astor, and Maruti Suzuki S-Cross. The price range also puts it at par with the Tata Harrier, Mahindra XUV700 and MG Hector.
