Volkswagen India has released a teaser of the 2021 Taigun SUV ahead of launch. The teaser gives a glimpse of the front-end of the production-spec model.

The SUV will come based on the same MQB AO IN platform as the production-spec Skoda Vision IN SUV. While mechanically it will be near-identical to the cousin model, the exterior design and styling will be completely different. Taigun was first showcased in India in a concept form during the Auto Expo last year and is one of the four SUVs that the company plans to launch in the country in near future. The car has also already been listed on the carmaker's official website in India.

The SUV will be powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged TSI petrol engine that has peak power rating of 113 hp and peak torque figures of 200 Nm. While a six-speed manual transmission is a certainty, the company may also bring in its seven-speed DSG auto transmission system into the car.
