The compact SUV segment has been doing exceedingly well in the Indian market and the latest addition, the Volkswagen Taigun, could quickly become the one to beat. The Taigun looks spectacular and has sharp angles across the entire body. In the front, the Taigun features a sleek grille with large fog lights built into the stylish bumper. The LED headlamps and LED DRLs make up the rest of the front. The rear of the Taigun is even more interesting as it features a very sporty taillight configuration. Under the hood of the Taigun sits a 1.0L Turbo-petrol engine that is expected to produce 115Ps of power and 200Nm of torque. Paired to the Turbocharged engine is either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DSG transmission. In terms of features, the Taigun will come with a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 10.25-inch all-digital instrument cluster. Some of the other features include a panoramic sunroof, automatic climate control, and cameras for easier parking. With so much on offer, the Taigun could soon become one of the most second hand cars from the company’s lineup.

There are also rumours of a CNG variant that could make its way to India. The Vento 2021 is also expected to come with a number of upgrades which include new LED headlamps and taillights as well as LED DRLs.

Based on the MBQ A0 platform from Volkswagen, the Virtus is designed to be compact, sturdy, and extremely safe. The Virtus was first unveiled in Sao Paulo, Brazil where it was confirmed that it will be the sedan version of the latest VW Polo Sixth-Gen – one of the most used cars in India. But the similarities between the Polo and the Virtus don’t end there. But, with the help of a used car evaluation tool, you could get your hands on one for a relatively good deal. The Virtus will look and perform almost exactly like the Polo and will only get a similar boot as is on the VW Vento. From the upgraded exteriors to the stylish interiors, the Virtus will share the Polo’s design and powertrain as well which include a 1.0L MPI, 1.0L TSI, 1.5L TSI, and 2.0L TSI petrol engines. There is also said to be a 1.6L TDI diesel variant that could be launched in India. All variants will come with a 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual, and 7-speed DSG automatic transmission option. Some of the features you can find on the upcoming Virtus are LED headlamps and tail lamps, panoramic sunroof, digital instrument cluster, Virtual Cockpit, touchscreen infotainment system, flat bottom steering wheel, and wireless charging.
