The German crossover novelty, which was developed for the automotive market in India, looks very similar to the current miniature SUV T-Cross. The official images of the crossover were published a couple of minutes ago.

In October 2012, Volkswagen introduced the Taigun crossover concept – a tiny crossover that is only 3,858 millimeters in length. While a car the size of a “matchbox” had never “been published” until now, he did it now – the press service of the German brand has published official photos of the crossover. It is worth saying that the new product looks terribly familiar. Because it is nothing but the Indian version of the current T-Cross.
 
It is worth noting that with a length of 4.2 meters and a wheelbase of 2.65 meters, the Taigun crossover is actually based on the “stretched” version of the T-Cross model, which VW has been selling in some parts of the world for a relatively long time. In addition, the appearance of the car resembles the appearance of the Chinese T-Cross.

Debuting this week at Auto Expo 2020, the Taigun subcompact crossover is based on the Indian version of the MQB A0 modular platform and is likely to share many of its benefits with the upcoming production version of the Czech SUV concept Skoda Vision IN, presented at the same show a couple of minutes ago. Taigun has a clearance of 205 mm, which makes it ideal for rough roads in India. In fact, the automakers have tuned the suspension so that it is more suitable for the second most populated country in the world.

 Under the hood is a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine rated at 130 hp. The motor has a cylinder shutdown technology. VW says the Taigun will accelerate to 100 km / h in 9.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 183 km / h, although these figures are likely to be obtained using a smaller 1.0 TSI three-cylinder engine with 115 hp.
