The 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 110PS and 175 Nm, are to be offered in the low to mid-spec versions of this new Volkswagen SUV. With a six-speed manual, the six-speed torque converter from the Vento will also be available. Also, the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol that makes 150PS/250 Nm and pairs with a seven-speed DSG will be offered on higher trims. The larger engine will get a six-speed manual as well in an entry GT variant. The top GT version will be offered in the 1.5 turbo and DSG combination.

Notable features on the inside of the Volkswagen Taigun should be Type-C USB charging, connected-car features, a single-pane sunroof, climate control, ventilated front seats, up to 17-inch alloy wheels and large amounts of interior storage. The Taigun, along with the Kushaq, will be one of the first mainstream cars to offer ESC as standard. Other than this, there are six airbags, TPMS, hill-hold function, rear parking camera, front parking sensors and ISOFIX child seat mounts. These features are variant dependent, and a full break-up will be available at launch. Read our first drive review to know more about the Taigun.
