The new model, with a dynamic and impressive design, will be offered for sale with economical TSI engine options, standard LED headlights, fully digital cockpit and multi-functional driving assistance systems.

"It impresses with an emotional and dynamic design. The new model also comes with a multitude of state-of-the-art connectivity and assistance systems," claimed Volkswagen in a statement released along with some of its sketches.

The Taigo SUV is going to be the European version of Volkswagen's Nivus model, which was successful in Brazil. Both cars will be based on Polo’s MQB A0 platform. The German auto giant has confirmed that the Taigo will be produced in Pamplona, Spain, for the European market.

Though Volkswagen has not revealed too many details about the upcoming Taigo SUV, there are certain things that will remain similar to the Nivus SUV. For instance, the 1.0-litre TSI engine which can churn out 116 PS of maximum power and 200 Nm of maximum torque.

The Taigo SUV is expected to come with dimensions of 4,266 mm in length, a wheelbase of 2,566 mm, a width of 1,757 mm and a height of 1,493 mm like the Nivus. It also may carry the same boot space of 415 litres as seen inside a Nivus SUV.

Volkswagen has not given a hint whether there will be an electric version of the Taigo SUV, given the emphasis the carmaker has been giving on electrification of late.
