New 2021 Volkswagen Taigo crossover coupe photographed without camouflage.
The new Nivus will officially head to Europe this summer, where Volkswagen will market it as the 2021 Taigo.

Meanwhile, Carscoops photo spies noticed a prototype of the novelty in Germany without any camouflage. It turned out that the model is almost no different from its South American counterpart VW Nivus.

If the new crossover looks familiar to you, you’re not wrong. The Taigo is essentially a slightly modified version of the Nivus crossover that targets Brazil and Argentina and was introduced almost a year ago. There are slight differences between the cars.

The subcompact cross-coupe has LED headlights that will be standard. There will be less chrome on the grille.

The European Taigo also has no badges on the front fenders, at least for the time being. At the rear, the diffuser has changed, and the taillights have acquired new graphics.

The Volkswagen Taigo will premiere this summer and will go on sale towards the end of the year. The car will be assembled at a factory in the Spanish city of Pamplona.

As standard, the crossover will receive LED headlights and TSI turbo petrol engines. We did not find the word «diesel» in the official release.

The Nivus logo in the center of the tailgate will be replaced by the Taigo lettering. The novelty will hit the market with new body colors and reimagined wheels.

One of the images shows the top of the dashboard, which looks identical to the Nivus and Polo supermini. If so, then it will get a 10-inch infotainment system right above the center vents, next to 10.25-inch digital dials.

What is the difference between Taigo and Nivus?

The front of the European version looks more expensive thanks to the more sophisticated design of the headlights and the LED strip between them.

The front bumper is also different: the grille of the Euro version has hexagonal honeycombs.

The German automaker has yet to release more details. That said, the 2021 Taigo is expected to differ from its South American counterpart in terms of security.

Specifically, the list of features will include features such as autonomous emergency braking, start assist, electronic stability control, fatigue sensor and adaptive cruise control.

In Brazil, the crossover is available in three trim levels and with one engine — a 1-liter TSI with 128 hp, which is paired with a 6-speed automatic.

This novelty can be expected in Russia as well, but a little later — before its assembly, most likely, it will be set up at a plant near Kaluga.

Recall that Volkswagen has undertaken obligations (within the framework of the SPIC investment contract) to produce three more new models in Russia.

At the announcement of the plans, it was said about a «new model of a compact SUV», which, in fact, may become the Volkswagen Taigo.

There is no data yet on the engine family. At the same time, the twin brother Nivus is powered by a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder TSI engine with 114 hp. on gasoline and 126 hp on ethanol.

The pair is powered by a 6-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive.

Who will the new VW Taigo compete with?

The new Volkswagen will appear in the second half of 2021 and may become an alternative to Renault Arkana, Hyundai Creta and Toyota C-HR.
