EXCLUSIVE details of future products from VAG for S American Markets and India.

- A0 SUV project hits the market in 2022 using simplified MQB platform, derived from Skoda brand products developed for India

- Base of the project originates from India, the visual inspiration seems to come from Europe.

- A0 SUV will be a subcompact sport utility vehicle with popular appeal (Remember TAIGUN?)

- The new generation of Skoda Fabia

- Subcompact hatch from the Czech brand (subsidiary of the group) positioned below the VW Polo.

-The new Fabia will be responsible for debuting a family of subcompacts using a simplified version of the MQB A0 platform, known as MQB A0 IN.

-From this base, a small SUV should also emerge, whose provisional name is Skoda Polar, created to measure to fight with Hyundai Venue, Toyota Raize and company.


-In common, all these models respect the limit of 4 meters in length required to guarantee a softer tax burden in the commercialization within the Indian market.

-For Brazil: MQB AO IN is most likely the matrix of the aforementioned - firsthand - A0 SUV project , which will be produced in Taubaté (SP). The launch will take place in 2022.


-Like the new Fabia and Polar, our (Brazilian) VW A0 SUV should be at the limit of 3.99 meters in length and have a wheelbase in the range of 2.50 to 2.53 meters.

Quote:
Two sources claim that the A0 SUV will have a front look copied from the eighth generation of the average Golf hatch, including a streak of led stretched to the sides at the top of the headlights, creating a small strip that invades the fender.

The rear should drink more from the source of the T-Cross.

Headlights of the A0 SUV will have a Golf-inspired shape, including the “pulled” LED fillets on the sides:

Overall, the 'A0 SUV' will be a recap of VW's 2012 Concept TAIGUN

Another video uploaded by an attendee:



What segment does this fit in? Creta/Seltos?

Last I heard, Audi wasn't attending auto expo. So Porsche/ Lamborghini/ Audi are all out? Sad.

TIGUAN and now TAIGUN, what an unimpressive name. They just rearranged texts to make a new name.

SKODA: Vision IN

I still feel they should have launched only One SUV (Taigun or Skoda) and not both, as they will again be practically the same and maybe without enough differentiating traits, like in older VAG products like Vento & Rapid. Creta and Seltos are also the similar, but both clearly different in looks and driving feel (not sure how next gen creta would be). Just my opinion.

The name TAIGUN is not new, it was a concept developed in 2012 shown in Brazil and later seen at the 2014 Auto Expo in India. It was a 4m CUV which was scrapped later in the project stage.

2014 Taigun in India:

Precisely, so what exactly is the 'World Premiere' they were touting!! From the looks of the rear quarter, it should be about 4m, perhaps just under. That's a cut throat segment where VW/Skoda will hardly stand a chance. IIRC, this was even acknowledged by their bosses a year ago. Although I'm personally interested only in this segment, for their own sake, I wish the duo start from Creta territory upwards.

The Taigun is different from what was initially planned long back. This one is 4.25m length and is essentially the VW T-cross from other countries but this is the longer Chinese and Brazil version which is 100mm longer than European version.

Looks like Taigun and Vision IN will be similar cars based on updated MQB-A0 IN platform.

Overall will be marginally smaller than Creta by the looks. I think they struck a good balance and found a good car for our market.

If competitively priced and with the 1.5L TSI (130bhp lower tune most likely) and 7 speed DSG, this will be a very nice option for many.

Skoda Vision IN Vs. Volkswagen Taigun - Which one is better?

Skoda in control of VW's product development for India; car based on MQB-A0-IN platform coming-11.png

Verdict : Skoda Kamiq ( Vision IN)


Based on the Kamiq and T Cross seen in international markets, the reviews point to Kamiq ( Vision IN) has an edge over the T Cross (Taigun) - ( Engine: 1.0-litre 3cyl petrol, 113bhp)

Quote:
The models here are right at the top of the supermini-SUV class, but a couple of the Skoda’s key strengths mean it takes the win here.
The Czech model’s impressive infotainment system is a big part of this, while the car’s interior is roomy. A sliding rear seat would be nice, but it’s not vital; the Skoda’s practicality is strong enough. The Kamiq is as good to drive as the T-Cross, but more frugal, too, so it seals victory.

Skoda plans 30 new models by 2022 (worldwide)

- Wants to sell two million cars per year by end of the decade

- A mix of new models and derivatives, and 10 of them will be partially or fully electrified

- The first cars as part of that plan will be a production version of the Vision IN concept in 2021

- The Vision IN will also be exported to Mexico, but not to any European countries, at least initially.

-Near future will see the company launch a new plug-in hybrid version of the Skoda Octavia vRS, plus two derivatives of a fully electric crossover based on the Group’s MEB platform

-New generations of some of Skoda’s core models, such as the Fabia and Superb, are also in the pipeline and will launch towards the end of the time frame
