Volkswagen Taigun 2021: a new version of the budget crossover.
After a long break, Volkswagen is starting mass production of a new version of the budget compact crossover of the Taigun series. In the new edition, Volkswagen Taigun 2021 demonstrates more voluminous dimensions, a number of new branded solutions in body design and salon interior.

The new model is focused on the specifics of the market; if successful, the crossover will be adapted to the needs of European motorists. The new generation Taigun will also receive updated performance characteristics for the power tandem component.


The appearance of the new model line has little in common with its predecessor. Restyling introduced a large number of changes to the design and layout of the crossover, so many experts consider the new version of the compact to be an independent project.

The appearance of the model «Taigun» model of 2021 uses elements of a youth sports style. Older drivers must be attracted by the combination of practicality and carefully crafted functionality. In the photo in the front view, the new crossover body demonstrates:

• longitudinal reliefs of the hood;

• chrome-plated lamellas of the compact radiator lining supplemented with the brand logo;

• angular blocks of multifunctional frontal optics with LED fittings;

• rounded sidewalls of a small-sized narrow bumper.

Much of the aggressive styling details are concentrated on the lower front end. Available — a set of fog lamps enclosed in black plastic and a large-mesh grille of a large-format ventilation air intake. The entourage is successfully complemented by the diagonal arrangement of the curly protective panel.

The front end is represented by a massive chrome trim and a harmonious combination of wave aerodynamic reliefs.

Modestly, nevertheless stylish and expressive, the new Volkswagen Taigun 2021 compact crossover looks in the side projection. Attention is drawn to:

• a gentle slope of a domed roof equipped with rails;

• black gloss of plastic frames and side glazing sills ascending to the base of the rear pillars;

• two-tone mirrors and smooth contours of square wheel arches.

In the configuration of the body sidewalls there is also a decorative sill strip, a protective «skirt» of the lower edge characteristic of a crossover layout and a corporate design of 17-inch rims.

The novelty of the branded model assortment looks more modern and somewhat presentable from the back side. In sight — the sharp edge of the spoiler equipped with stoplights, panoramic tilting glass configuration and the original branded graphics of the taillights.

In the design features of the stern design, it should be noted the compact size of the tailgate, a massive bumper designed as a step, a silver frame with a plastic body kit and a diagonal layout of the protective panel. In addition to decorative chrome plating, numerous stepped details are involved in the design of the stern.


The budget, fabric or kozhimite trim of the five-seater cabin is compensated by the modern architecture of the front panel, the informativeness of the instrument panel with bright arrow indicators, the 8-inch diagonal of the media display and the expanded functionality of the component options.

The modular construction of the tunnel tightly adjacent to the console includes:

• remote control for quick activation of technical and electronic equipment;

• levers of mechanical or top-end robotic transmission and parking brake;

• also a small but comfortable enough armrest.

A small part of the command functionality is assigned to the steering wheel keypads. The service of the front pilot seats is minimal — this is lateral support and the standard range of seat height adjustment.

The format of the back sofa is designed for three riders. The apparent lack of boarding and road service partly compensates for the adjustable backrest tilt and the possibility of transforming the middle seat into a wide folding armrest. Laying the back of the sofa allows you to increase the useful volume of the luggage compartment from 280 liters to 987 liters.

The test drive of the crossover showed a nominal level of internal sound insulation for a budget car, free access to controls, and the effectiveness of the suspension of the chassis on roads with problematic surfaces.

• The design differences of the new generation Taigun are an adapted MQB-A0 IN platform with a combined rack-and-torsion suspension, traditional for budget cars.

• In the list of updates, the wheelbase extended to 2651 mm and the ground clearance increased to 205 mm.
