Volkswagen Taigun Trail Edition unveiled with cosmetic upgrades, launch soon
Volkswagen India has pulled the wraps off the new Taigun Trail Edition Concept at the VW Annual Day 2023. The automaker’s annual event celebrates its five-star rated cars - Taigun and Virtus - and the German auto giant has used this opportunity to announce various updates and special editions across its model range. With the Taigun Trail Edition, Volkswagen aims to bring a more rugged look to the SUV with cosmetic upgrades.
The Volkswagen Taigun Trail Edition gets a chrome accent on the grille and a bold chrome accent on the lower grille. There's new ‘trail’ inspired graphics on the sides, functional roof rails, a roof foil, black-coloured door garnish and ORVMs with red accents. The ORVMs get puddle lamps as well. Exterior upgrades include black-painted 16-inch alloy wheels and a ‘Trail’ badge at the rear. The “infinity" taillights have been carried over.
