Overview Of The New VW Taigo
The new VW Taigo occupies a special place amongst the plethora of vehicles in the SUV market. As an SUV-styled model, the exterior characteristics guarantee that the variant is bound to stand out. When it comes to VW’s already formidable SUV line-up, the Taigo is slotted neatly between the T-Cross and the T-Roc. Slightly larger than the more recognizable Polo, it still presents a formidable addition to the VW Family.
This new variant is instantly recognizable by its side profile and sloping roofline. Volkswagen has also added another striking exterior detail by fixing the face of the model with a unique honeycomb grille and LED headlights. Giving it more of an edge is the option of the panoramic sunroof (available for all 3 new models), an element that adds more of an edge than we have become accustomed to with the traditional SUV.
The interior of the VW Taigo completes the initial impression of luxury that the exterior of the model exudes. All models come equipped with a radio display that varies in size depending on the trim and variant. There are familiar players here too, with the inclusion of the We Connect Go functionality that allows drivers to connect their mobile devices to the Taigo. A standout piece of innovation is the incorporation of the wireless charging functionality.
The performance capability of the new VW Taigo is as consistent and reliable as we have come to expect from the German manufacturer. All models come equipped with a 1.0 TSI engine that results in a stable drive on the road. All variants also emit 200Nm of torque and 85kW of power. The VW Taigo is not concerned with producing immense racehorse capability. The new variant is focused on being a more economical drive, an intention which is realized with the inclusion of the Eco Function ability that the R-Line variant comes with.
Safety is always paramount for Volkswagen. This can be seen by the integration of the IQ.Drive system. Quite literally a safety package, it incorporates technology such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Autonomous Emergency Braking, and Fatigue Detection.
The vehicle is also fairly priced, especially considering its unique styling. The entry-level Volkswagen Taigo 1.0 TSI Life DSG retails for R429 900, whilst the top-of-the-range Volkswagen Taigo 1.0 TSI R-Line DSG is priced at R486 000.

An SUV With A Dash Of Class
The traditional SUV can be counted on to feature many familiar features. Spaciousness, safety, and a solid on/off-road performance amongst them. However, this vehicle segment is not renowned for its exterior features. The VW Taigo unapologetically shifts our focus to its outstanding craftsmanship and lush interior design. The styling alone put it in a class of its own, innovation and tech aside.
By comparison, the Suzuki Vitara is nowhere near as sleek, and the Hyundai Creta looks dour when placed next to the Taigo.
