Here is the Volkswagen Taigo: a small SUV coupe that incorporates elements of the Polo and the T-Cross!
Volkswagen has just launched a newcomer to the urban SUV segment: the Taigo. What if his look of SUV coupe is unique in this segment, it is not a surprise: the Taigo is none other than the European version of the Nivus, marketed in Brazil since last year.
Technically, this Volkswagen Taigo is based on the MQB A0 platform, which also equips the Polo and the T-Cross. The Taigo, on the other hand, is a little longer than the Polo and T-Cross, with 4.27 m. It’s a big fifteen centimeters more than the T-Cross, and twenty more than the Polo. What to compensate for roof guard necessarily complicated by the cut line, especially since the wheelbase is also longer (2.57 m).
Volkswagen announces a 438 L trunk volume, almost as much as a T-Cross. But unlike the latter, the Taigo will not be entitled to a sliding bench. Inside, Polo owners will not be disoriented: the whole is taken directly from the restyled version. There are therefore plenty of touch controls, including for the air conditioning controls, under the central screen.
The instrument cluster is digital from the series, and measures 8 inches (10.25 inches optional). The central screen, it measures 6.5 inches as standard, and climbs up to 8 inches as an option. In terms of equipment and technology, we find the now classic driving aids, including the semi-autonomous driving level 2optional (adaptive regulator with panel reading and lane keeping).
When it is released towards the end of the year, the Volkswagen Taigo will be offered in three power levels. We will find two 3 cylinders TSI 1.0 of 95 and 110 hp, and the TSI 1.5 4-cylinder 150 ch. The 95 hp unit will be equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the other two will be entitled to a choice of a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox.
Price levels, we are waiting for this Volkswagen Taigo a little more expensive than the current T-Cross, which is available to him just under 22,000 €. So count approximately 23,000 € for the entry-level Taigo, even if Volkswagen should confirm its price list in the coming months.
