It certainly will. Both the Taigun and Kushaq will not be making a significant impact in the Indian market. The EPC issue not withstanding, the competitors understand the pulse of the average Indian buyer much better than VAG. "Unmatched driving dynamics" will not cut it for VAG in India. IMO MG/Hyundai/Kia will rule the urban SUV/Crossover market in India.

Let's see what VW has in store for us .
VW removed a significant amount of goodies from the 1.5 Manual GT. I would be happy to see that car costing around 14L as that is then, a good buy! Another 30 minutes and we will know.

Right, I second that. I think this is the variant which they are pushing to the enthusiasts which should be good value. The polo manual owners must be really looking forward to this. I sure am

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Looks like the lazy approach continues even after the launch is live. People simply strolling around even 10 minutes into the video.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Taigun is so Indian, that Germans have Indianized their punctuality as well

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Good 15 mins late. Looks like Volkswagen has taken indianization little too seriously. All disco lights. Not much actual content.

Bring it on Volkswagen.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

I have been pronouncing Taigun all wrong. The India head and even global sales/marketing head are calling it Tai-goon.

Tai-Gun sounds better than Tai-Goon, even though 'Gun' and 'Goons' are somewhat related

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

12221 bookings so far. Seems to have done a lot better than Kushaq in terms of initial response atleast.
