Is this Brezza category or Creta category?

Size-wise this seems to be 'Brezza' category but price-wise it will be 'Creta' or even 'compass' category

Volkswagen's Taigun and Skoda's 'Vision IN' will rival Hyundai's Creta, Kia's Seltos, etc...

It would measure ~ 4.3m in length, 2.65m wheelbase and 205mm of ground clearance.

Taigun will be powered by a 130hp, 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine. With the absence of a diesel engine option VW is looking at a CNG option for buyers looking to minimize running costs.

Launch will be only in the festive season of 2021.

The Taigun is up on the VW India website. I have attached a screenshot of the specs provided and gallery images. It's getting a TSI turbo-petrol engine mated to a 7-speed DSG that does 0-100 kmph in <10 seconds, LED headlamps and a panoramic sunroof. The tail lamp strip looks like Audi's and Hyundai's designs of late. I only hope they bring this car to market soon.

After polo GT i think this is next car that might get Youngsters into the VW showrooms, good that they are targetting that segment. Good to see that VW has a focus on Indian market, everytime i take the Vento out for a drive, TSI + DSG does nothing but plasters a smile on my face, every single time.

Some of the walk around videos of the Taigun









Volkswagen is finally targeting the right segment. Too bad it won't be here at least for another year and a half .

Is Volkswagen naming the car after the Tiger-Lion hybrid? As I cannot see much resemblance apart from the abundance of of Orange shade

Makes me wonder, why are the manufacturers so interested in taking inspiration from the Animal Kingdom off late? We already have the Cheetah inspired XUV500, Shark inspired Marazzo, Altroz from Albatroz, Harrier (Bird of prey) to name a few. Obviously leaving out the likes of Mustang and Lamborghinis as one is an icon and for the other, it's been a long standing tradition.

Somehow I did not like that mango/yellow colour spilling over into the interiors ( dashboard) . I hope the production version is sobered up to the usual VW levels. This one looks more Datsun-ish, not in line with a solid, classical Euro product.

I am so looking forward to this car. For people who want to buy a crossover that probably drives more like a car and has the practicality of a crossover, this is car is right up on the list.
The credentials look solid. It’s based on the new platform and the VW aficionados have all reasons to be excited about.
The platform being adopted to Indian market shouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing considering that in the price bracket this is going to be launched. As with all European OEMs, the development time is rather much higher than the Korean car makers and hence the cost as well. But overall, you get a more thorough driving experience.

I just hope this gets launched in Q2, 2020. Even if the feature list is not as long as the Seltos, I am sure there will be enough buyers who will line up to lap this Taigun. I only wish it was named something easier and recognizable.

Time frames for release were revealed. Skoda's Vision IN will arrive first in early 2021, while the Taigun will follow in the later part of 2021.

These are concept cars and yet to be tested in Indian road conditions.

Engine options will likely be the 1.0 TSI in the entry level and the 1.5 TSI in the higher end variants.

I loved the new German "twins". Finally I look at these two cars as a worthy replacement for my GT tsi esp with the 1.5 l engine. Between the two i liked the vw taigun more than the skoda vision in.

ANy one else thinks that be is making a blunder by naming it taigun? It's very close to tiguan and looks like it as well. It would be a blunder to kill tiguan all together.

Somehow this car is masking its dimensions. Was going through the coverage and appears like the car is 4.2m long. but looking at its stance, it appears more like a hatch in the sub 4m category. Perhaps those huge set of wheels are the cause of this perception

Tiguan is going to grow in size and come as Tiguan ALLSPACE and hence will have the differentiation in looks.
