Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

I have done 6.8k in four months of mixed terrain driving and it has given me 11-12 kms.
Got the vehicle serviced in the first month and also had an accidental repair when a Wagon-R hit my vehicle from behind requiring back bumper change, in NOIDA Sector-6 VW service centre. Was satisfied with the service and the timelines they gave for repairs. You could also try it once and share your experience.

Mileage depends a lot on quick accelerations and how you drive the TSI. Average traffic I get between 11 to 12.5. Heavy traffic reduces to 10 or 9. I would suggest go to VW Metropolitan (frontier auto) in Mathura road, Delhi. I have been taking my cars over there since quite sometime have had good experience so far.

Got it! Yes, makes sense. I feel with just 950kms, I'm still not in the habit of the TSI and have an itchy right foot!

Had a Vento (2012 - 2019), which we used to send to VW Faridabad until it shut in 2017/18. Later, went to VW Wazirpur (Rajdhani? I'm not sure) and had a horrific experience. I am located near the airport. I believe there is a VW Frontier center in Gurgaon too! will check with them or should send to Mathura road eventually.

Thanks!

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

A fellow Taigun owner - Anupam Gupta had shared this on the FB group when his car went for the some service. He has installed the dual tone horns and looks like Roots is now an OE horn supplier for the group:

Cheaper than the imported ones from Europe at 2k INR a pair and the swap seems easy by just removing the front grill.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

I cannot say which one is the best, but i purchased the 1L highline MT from VW West at Moti Nagar. Have done ~1.7k of NCR driving till now.
Went twice to the same service center, once for the swagat service and then for correcting the door squeaks! The experience has been good so far.

Car guzzles petrol on turbo acceleration, mileage drops drastically beyond 100-110 kmph. I have learnt to use cruise control more often, be light on accelator and lesser breaking.

Done with 6.9k so far.
Agreed. Need to be lighfooted and sober styled. Am hovering around 1.9k. Have planned a long drive next week. Mileage on long drives seems ok however car is a big guzzler in city as you said. How accurate can be the mileage reflecting on the system?

In today's cars, the systems are pretty much accurate 0.5-1 kmpl
Do give update on the mileage and experience you have during the trip; have a safe drive!

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Replaced our 10-year-old Polo with Taigun!



Hello members,
We had VW Polo with the least enthusiast engine, the 1.2 petrol Highline. The car started showing its age and came up with huge maintenance bills. We decided to upgrade to something better. Been driving the car for 3 years and being an enthusiast myself, I knew I wouldn't settle for a non-fun to drive car. Being a keen reader of this taigun forum, helped me gather confidence for this product. All said and done, got a good exchange price for polo and a good discount on the Taigun topline TSI MT Curcuma Yellow.
We got the car delivered on the auspicious day of Gudi Padwa. Took the delivery and went straight to Mandir for Puja. Had a Taigun Highline AT in front of ours!
Well, not all things end well.
The very next day driver's side window refused to roll down. Tried multiple times, and it rolled down and stopped mid-way. I was surprised and disappointed as to what went wrong. Took the car to the service center and they diagnosed it with a faulty window winder motor.
Anyways, they have put the order for the part and would receive it within 3-5 business days. Meanwhile, they closed the window and advised me to not roll down.
I'm okay with the issue as it could definitely be a manufacturing defect and the service guys completely accepted it and handled the situation very professionally.
Till now the car has done only 160 kms and I'm yet to experience the true potential of a TSi engine!
Any questions related to purchasing or overall experience are welcomed!

Congrats on your purchase.

If possible can you share what are the discounts they have offered as I am in the same boat. Here in Karnataka, they are just not ready to give any benefits though I informed them that I am ready to exchange my 6 years old Polo TDI

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Hi Folks,

Do we have people who have booked a Taigun GT Plus variant in Jan/Feb 2022 here? I have booked mine (Curcuma Yellow) in the first week of January this year and am yet to get allocation/delivery. Any other folks who have done their bookings and are still waiting?

My booking has been done with Elite Motors, JP Nagar in Bangalore.

Thanks.

That's very unfortunate! I was offered a good discount on insurance+ the loyalty bonus+ exchange bonus+ dealer discount. Also my service package was reduced from ₹21999/- to ₹11999/-. Try your luck out. If possible do visit other dealers too and let then compete among themselves and you'd get a good price for sure!

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Hi guys,

Wanted to check with ya'll how the realtime mileage reading works for you. While on a short drive last night, observed the numbers jumping erratically. Reason I ask, is because this isn't how the reading works on the Polo, where the number changes gradually over time.

Attaching a video for your refrence -
