Volkswagen Taigun Base Model - Comfortline Features And Cost
In this article, we’ll look at the features, price, engine specs and dimensions of the Volkswagen Taigun base model or Volkswagen Taigun Comfortline.
The Volkswagen Taigun is available in 5 variants - Comfortline, Highline, Topline, GT and GT Plus. The base model of the Volkswagen Taigun is only available with a turbo 1.0-litre petrol engine and a manual transmission. It costs Rs. 10.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
Volkswagen Taigun Base Model Features
The Taigun’s base Comfortline variant with the 1.0L turbo petrol engine and manual transmission costs Rs. 10.5 lakh. It gets a few notable features like:
16-inch steel wheels with covers
Front differential lock
3-point seatbelts for all passengers
LED tail lamps
All power windows
7-inch touchscreen infotainment
Android Auto and Apple Carplay
Manual AC with rear AC vents
The Comfortline base model of the Volkswagen Taigun itself covers the basic features very well. However, you may miss the following features, which are available in the next Highline model such as:
Rear washer wiper
Front fog lamps
16-inch alloy wheels
Rear parcel tray
Height-adjustable driver seat
Power folding mirrors
The price jump to the Highline variant is too steep to justify for these features. If you can manage without these features and want better value for money, then we don’t see the need to jump to the Highline variant.
Volkswagen Taigun Base Model Engine Specs
The base 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine of the Volkswagen Taigun is the smallest in the segment, but its power output is on par for the segment and better than the Astor 1.5L, Duster 1.5L, Kicks 1.5L and the S-Cross. But, this is a turbo petrol engine, so it makes better torque than all C-segment SUVs with a non-turbo petrol engine. Turbo patrols also have a wider torque curve, and they deliver their performance at low RPMs, which gives them great drivability characteristics. In the case of Taigun 1.0L, the peak torque arrives at 1750rpm and stays at 178Nm until 4500rpm.
This engine is also available with a 6-speed torque converter type automatic transmission, but the base model only gets a manual transmission. In terms of fuel efficiency, the Taigun 1.0L manual is better than comparable engines of the Creta, Seltos, Kicks and Duster and almost comparable with the S-Cross hybrid.
Volkswagen Taigun Base Model Dimensions
The Taigun base model is 4221mm long, 1760mm wide and 1612mm tall. It has a wheelbase of 2651mm and a ground clearance of 188mm. The Taigun’s boot space measures 385 litres. The base model gets 16-inch steel wheels with wheel covers.

The Taigun is taller than only the S-Cross, which most buyers don’t even consider an SUV. However, the ground clearance is still acceptable at 188mm, which is better than the Astor and S-Cross.
