After Ford, BMW, Renault and Peugeot, VW now reveals a three-cylinder engine.
To offer a young product, affordable, compact and adapted to the local market Volkswagen has presented at the Salon de Sao Paulo a world first, the concept Taigun, an “off-road” vehicle that takes the design of the Cross-coupé front-end and grille with the lines of a muscular Tiguan-mainly in the wings.
This three-door crossover based on the Up offers four seats and a trunk of 280litres to put in perspective with its proportions (3.86m long or just 32 cm longer than the Up!
that offers a 251liters trunk itself)
The Taigun inaugurates a 1.0l three-cylinder TSI engine that develops 110hp for a torque of 175Nm and announces emissions of 110g/km for a consumption of 4.5/100km.
The weight of the car is kept at 958kg and allows a 0 to 100 kph in 9.2 seconds.
