The India market is of keen interest to almost every car manufacturer due to its rapid expansion. More people in that part of the world are buying cars and so every brand wants to claim their slice of the pie. Ford and Renault are already a prominent force in the region, but VW have plans to bring more of their German engineering to the people of India. Unveiled, Volkswagen Taigun Concept Delhi Auto Expo.
The first time we saw the Volkswagen Taigun was at the 2012 Sao Paulo show in Brazil. This supermini sized crossover is effectively a raised VW up! with some more aggressive styling. Since its first appearance the car has been adapted for the Indian market and now looks very close to being production ready. Much like its key competitor, the Ford EcoSport, the spare tyre is now mounted on the rear tailgate to allow for easier access to it. The roads in India aren’t always as smooth as we are used to in Europe, and so the ease of removing the spare without unloading what is in the boot would be most welcome when stranded at the side of the road.
It is as yet unknown if the Taigun will make it to Europe.
