This is the Volkswagen Taigo and these are all its Details
Although we had already told you about the new Volkswagen Taigo and some of the details of the version that will be manufactured in Spain and marketed in Europe, it was not until today that the manufacturer has told us some additional details.
With the new Taigo compact crossover, Volkswagen is launching a coupe SUV for the first time on the European market.
The front-wheel drive Taigo features elevated seating positions, connectivity, and the latest driving aids. The rear of the five-seater slopes back like a coupe, without restricting headroom for the second row of seats.
Numerous state-of-the-art assistance systems will ensure comfort and a high level of safety for all passengers.
The model will feature Full LED headlights, a fully digital cockpit and the latest generation of infotainment systems (MIB3) as standard.
At 4.26 meters long, 1.75 meters wide and 1.49 mm high, it is slightly longer, narrower and lower than the T-Roc and is longer than the T-Cross. Its wheelbase measures 2,566 mm, which makes it slightly longer than the normal T-Cross and almost identical to the Latin version called Volkswagen Nivus.
Sold exclusively with front-wheel drive, the Taigo will feature only gasoline engines, as the brand is gradually moving away from its TDI engines. Customers will be able to choose between a 1.0-liter three-cylinder unit and a 1.5-liter four-cylinder unit.
Depending on the target market, the model will have 95 hp (70 kW) and 110 hp (81 kW) and 150 hp (110 kW). Depending on the engine choice, the Taigo can be paired with a five- or six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Despite the descending roofline, the cargo area offers 438 liters of capacity, which is comparable to the T-Cross.
The brand has plans to sell Taigo in 28 countries in the European Union, in addition to Turkey and Africa.
