Volkswagen is presenting a further developed version of the near-production Taigun SUV concept at Auto Expo 2014 in New Delhi, India.

Its styling, surfaces and layout of instruments and controls – together with its orange and beige seat upholstery and numerous matt anodised aluminium accents – give the interior fresh and youthful contrasts.

The efficient powerplant extends the line-up of three-cylinder petrol engines, adding direct fuel injection plus turbo technology. Not only is the three-cylinder engine very lightweight and fuel-efficient; its maximum torque of 175 Newton metres is also available at a low 1500 rpm.
