Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Has anyone used the carbon air filter as a swap from the official accessories list ( part #6JR-091-700)? Our car drives full time using AC, but lately we have been having a lot of dust allergies and other issues. Wondering if we should explore this. Costs 1k per site. Did also check after market to find a k&n filter. I don't know much about them except that they are some performance filters and may not fit my need. (33-3037 K&N REPLACEMENT AIR FILTER). Please advice?

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Hi fellow BHPians,

I'm planning to get a Taigun 1.0 Topline MT; had a test drive yesterday and was impressed by the way it drives.

I am adamant about a 5-star safety rating, which has led to a very short list of vehicles to choose from, wifey is also on board and ready to compromise on other creature comfort apart from AC (the cooler the better).

Just want to know the performance of AC, how good it is after the said VW update? In my short drive, I can rate it OK.

I will hate to be in a place to compromise on a stable body shell in lieu of a good AC performance

I don’t know how many have been using Jio dongle found in Taigun Car for Wi-Fi connectivity.
However, for the uninitiated, the following are the steps to be followed to activate the same.

1. Install JioMotive app from Play Store or App Store

2. Use the same mobile number that was used for My Volkswagen Connect app to activate this app too. If you are not using My Volkswagen Connect app, then use the mobile number that was given to the dealer at the time of car registration. Once the JioMotive app is activated, the initial screen is displayed as shown below.
Attachment 2266308

3. Select your name & vehicle number displayed at the top as indicated by the arrow above in point#2

Attachment 2266306

4. In the screen shown in point#3 above, select “Manage” under Wi-Fi settings
Attachment 2266307

5. Under “Manage Device”, switch on Wi-Fi. SSID and Password details can be found on the screen. Use this credential for connecting car Wi-Fi.
6. No need to use the mobile hotspot to download apps or to listen to Gaana.

My cousin picked up a Taigun 2 weeks ago and AC is pretty good just remember 23 degrees in Korean or our humble Maruti will be 21 degrees in Taigun. Also the cooling can take up to 10 minutes if the car is parked under sun so be patient.

While buying insist on getting the VIN before making any large sum payment , make sure the car is manufactured from March 23 onwards and BS6.2 compliant. You will be fine.

Thanks for your reply.
I will check the VIN number before making any further payments apart from Rs 21,000 booking amount.

I have asked for a city test drive in the afternoon on the coming weekend to test for the AC performance once more (hoping it will not be cloudy), if all goes well & approved by the home ministry, will book it on that day.

Take a long TD but if the car is from 2022 batch then don't let that be your decision making factor. When I did TD for Slavia the AC was pretty useless but I knew the issue was sorted out so didn't bother, the AC in my car is pretty good so again I would suggest don't rely on the TD vehicle unless its from the new batch. Happy shopping

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Made in India VW Taigun gets another 5 star in more stringent Latin NCAP, however it gets 6 airbags as standard along with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) (which the Indian version misses).

Just for reference, Hyundai Tucson scored 0, Honda WRV 1, Kia Sportage 3 in the recent tests that were done by Latin NCAP.

Update: Took the test drive in the afternoon, and the AC felt sufficient.

Went ahead and did the booking for Highline 1.0 TSI MT in Lava Blue Color.

Should be home in around 20 days.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Guys,

Booked 1.5GTplus but still torn between white and carbon steel grey color . I liked carbon steel grey but now I think white is easier to maintain and the dark roof does give white a better road presence. Thoughts?

Well colour is always a personal choice, recently VW has launched new colors as well. You can opt for :
Carbon steel matte,
Black,
Lava blue.

Congratulations, Nishant! Could you please provide the OTR (On-The-Road) quote from the dealer and also share the breakdown of the costs?

I have tried both of these in my Virtus with AA connected but doesn't seem to work. Are these settings only for Bluetooth without Android Auto?
