do You remember that concept that the brand of Wolfsburg presented in 2012 with the appearance of compact SUV? It was the Volkswagen Taigun, a prototype as we say, anticipated the lines of a small todocamino. Two years later the same sample is renewed in the Hall of New Delhi, by updating the rear and including accessories such as the spare wheel. Everything pointed to the model would production in 2016, so this year what we were expecting. Now it seems that this will not happen, because the project finally has not received the green light.
apparently, the reasons that the Volkswagen Taigun will not be produced is the reduced size of your body. The body of this prototype has some compact measures: 3.859 mm long, 1.728 mm wide and 1570 mm high. Your battle is 2.470 mm, although in its interior we can find five places, and the trunk only has 280 liters and can this figure be extended by up to 996 l. with the seats folded. In total, the Taigun weighs 998 kilograms.
Also the engine that was hiding under the skin of this concept at the time of its presentation was a TSI engine has three cylinders and 1,000 cubic centimeters. This three-cylinder was able to develop 110 horsepower and a maximum torque of 175 Nm, a force that announced to be available from 1,500 laps. The acceleration, which he stated was 9.2 seconds in the test of 0-100 km/h and maximum speed of 186 km/h. A configuration is attractive to a customer with urban needs.
But be careful, the Volkswagen Taigun will not arrive finally to production does not mean that the trademark is not thinking of launching an SUV based on the Polo. There’s even more, we might see the first work on this small todocamino in the sample, switzerland, which will open its doors in a few weeks.
