The new era of cars SUV is coming and a good example of reversal of these (increasingly efficient and lightweight) models is the Volkswagen Taigun even as a prototype car that shows that the future of these cars halfway between tourism and the SUV is to offer maximum comfort to its occupants while maintaining a small size and adapted to urban mobility.
The first version of Volkswagen Taigun Concept was presented at the Motor Show in São Paulo 2012 and since then the brand engineers Wolfsburg have continued to work on the basis of this five-door SUV aimed at urban environment and whose length is less than 4 meters which would place him as one of the smallest and lightest SUVs in the market. With an unladen mass of only 998 kg. and equipped with a turbocharged three-cylinder 1.0 engine the first production versions of the Taigun should have a power close to 110 hp and a consumption of less than 5 liters / 100 km.
The appearance of off-road Taigun clear especially in the rear of the car having the spare wheel hanging on the tailgate and highlighting by flared wheel arches and plastic parts to protect from bumps underbody . Note that the gate allows the door opening side while the rear window is hinged. The trunk has 280 liters capacity similar to a Volkswagen Polo.
Other details that stand out aesthetically This small SUV is its imposing 17-inch wheels a full door handles adapted to the car's aerodynamics and the curious roof rack with LED lights last generation providing greater visibility conductor.
One of the most interesting facts to be resolved is whether the VW Taigun allow equip the 4MOTION all-wheel drive or if the market only with front wheel drive. It is clear that their goal is the urban environment but thanks to its long wheelbase length and height will be a model more than ready to go exploring beyond the roads.
The interior of this innovative Volkswagen is primarily sober and uncluttered giving a modern and well away from other current designs of the German brand image. Anyway even in the case of a prototype many elements subject to change but what does assure us from Volkswagen is the Volkswagen Taigun be a reality on the road in less than two years.
