On the outside, the Taigun borrows plenty of styling cues from the China-spec despite being longer at just 4.2 metres in length. It boasts a typical modern VW design with clean lines and sharp creases. Some notable highlights include a slatted grille, large fog lamps, flared wheel arches, and connected tail lamps. It also receives body cladding all over to give it a rugged stance. What's more, the SUV on display is 90 per cent production-ready.

It is also similar to the T-Cross it is based on with a high-mounted infotainment system on the dashboard, AC vents, and climate control knobs below it. It also features a panoramic sunroof and a fully digital instrument cluster.  

Under the hood, it will be powered by BS6-compliant 1.0-litre TSI turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre TSI petrol engines. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol is good for 115PS of power and 200Nm of torque, whereas the 1.5-litre option puts out 150PS and 250Nm. Both engines are mated to a 7-speed DSG transmission. 

It was showcased alongside its sibling, the Skoda Vision IN. Both SUVs are a part of Volkswagen’s India 2.0 project. The SUV is likely to launch later this year or in early-2021 in a price range of Rs 10 lakh to Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom India).
