Rumour: VW deletes climate control from Taigun Highline trim

Earlier, Skoda and Volkswagen had replaced the auto-folding ORVMs with manual ones.

Earlier this week, we had reported how Skoda was no longer offering automatic climate control on the mid-spec Kushaq Ambition. It seems Volkswagen has also been hit by the chip shortage and has decided to remove the feature from the Taigun.

It is said that VW has deleted automatic climate control from the Taigun Highline trim, which doesn't come as a surprise, as the company had followed in the footsteps of its sister brand when it had replaced auto-folding ORVMs with manual ones back in January this year.

Like the Kushaq, the mid-spec variant of the Taigun is expected to get the same basic manual AC module with three rotary controls for the temperature, blower speed and direction.

The move is likely to affect the pricing and customers of the Taigun Highline variant can expect a discount.
