Stylish and classy exterior

The exterior design of the VW Taigun is quite beautiful, with clean lines and an overall boxy theme. The SUV get LED headlamps at the front, along with chrome garnishing on the front bumper. At the sides, we see stylish dual-tone alloy wheels seated within circular wheel arches. At the rear, we see LED taillights with a single-piece design. It also gets faux bash plates on the bumpers, black cladding all around, and roof rails, for a touch of ruggedness.

The Taigun will have a pretty cabin design, with shades of grey, black, and silver. The highlight is the 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 10.2-inch fully digital instrument cluster, the latter of which isn’t available on the Kushaq. Features on offer will include a smartphone wireless charger, sunroof, connected car tech, ventilated seats, etc.

Plenty of accessories on offer

A heavily accessorized model was showcased by the manufacturer recently, which features a different set of alloy wheels, roof carrier, chrome cladding on the door, etc. We expect Volkswagen to offer plenty of interior accessories as well, to improve the comfort and convenience of the SUV even further.
