Volkswagen’s T-branded compact crossover lineup has been expanded with the Taigun model targeting the Indian market. Its pre-production version was shown back in 2020, and now the “commercial” version has debuted – the novelty turned out to be a slightly modernized Volkswagen T-Cross, which is already on sale in Europe.
The crossover is based on a simplified version of the MQB-A0-IN modular platform, on which the recent Skoda Kushaq SUV is also built. Taigun also shared the engine range with him: it includes a 1.0-liter “turbo-three” with a capacity of 115 horsepower and a 150-horsepower “turbo four” with a volume of 1.5 liters. The base engine is combined with a “mechanics” or six-speed automatic, and the 1.5-liter unit works with a manual transmission or a seven-speed “robot” DSG. Four-wheel drive Volkswagen Taigun is not required.
Photos of the interior of the novelty are not yet available. It is expected that in rich trim levels Taigun will receive a 10-inch media system screen, a virtual instrument panel, a new multifunction steering wheel and a touch-sensitive climate control unit. In general, the interior architecture will repeat the soplatform Kushaq.

The production of Volkswagen Taigun and Skoda Kushaq will be established at one plant in the Indian city of Pune, and the level of localization will reach 95 percent. Taigun will go on sale in the summer, and prices will be announced closer to the launch of the model.
