Volkswagen Taigun Unofficial Bookings Open At Dealer Level

The Volkswagen Taigun is one of the highly anticipated launches for 2021, and it is expected to be launched around the festive season. However, ahead of its launch select, Volkswagen dealers have already started accepting unofficial bookings for the new compact SUV, for a token of ₹ 25,000. Some of the dealers we spoke to have also told us the SUV will go on sale in India around August or September 2021, and pricing would be somewhere around ₹ 15 lakh (on-road).

We have reached out to Volkswagen India to get a confirmation on the bookings, however, at the time of publishing this story, our email sent to the company remained unanswered. Having said that, sources in the know have told that the company has not started accepting official bookings for the upcoming VW Taigun yet. We would expect the company to open the official booking for the SUV closer to its launch.

The Volkswagen Taigun be one of the first models to be built on the company’s locally developed MQB A0 IN platform, which also underpins the upcoming Skoda Kushaq. In fact, the Skoda’s SUV is expected to be launched before the Taigun. Visually the SUV comes with heavy chrome details, along with LED headlamps and LED DRLs, along with a beefy cladded bumper featuring more chrome details and a faux skid plate. There’s more cladding on the sides and wheel arches along with sporty dual-tone alloy wheels. At the rear, the SUV comes with attractive LED taillights connected by a large LED light bar that adds to the premium design, with the centrally positioned Taigun lettering.

The cabin gets a dual-tone black and grey colour treatment, with the centre stage on the dashboard is taken by a 10-inch infotainment display. The Taigun also gets a flat-bottom steering wheel, which is a multi-functional unit. We also get to see a pair of USB charging ports, a 12V charging socket and an engine start-stop button. The SUV also gets a bunch of storage pockets, a central armrest and two-tone fabric and faux leather upholstery.
