Following on from its debut in Brazil, Volkswagen has hinted that the company’s Taigun concept may be heading for production after recognizing a growing trend towards SUVs and crossovers.
Underpinned by the same New Small Family (NSF) platform as the up!, the compact SUV is 3,859 mm in length, 1,728 mm in width, stands 1,570 mm tall and sports a wheelbase of 2,470 mm, meaning its dimensions sit perfectly between the cross up! and Tiguan.
“VW has been traditional in the past and has looked towards the mainstream, but there has been a lot of work in this direction. There’s still a lot of debate around the [Taigun] concept because it wouldn’t be traditional, but it is clear that there is a market for it,” said Rob Hazelwood, managing director of Volkswagen UK.
