German automobile manufacturer Volkswagen has stolen hearts of people at the Sao Paulo Motor Show in Brazil after unveiling it’s next generation small SUV concept based on the up!. The Taigun, which expected to go on production by 2015 expect prices around £12,000.
Taigun is four seater SUV just 3.86 metres long and 1.73 metres wide powered by a new 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine producing 110 PS at 5,000 rpm and pushing 175 Nm (129 lbs ft) of torque mated with a six-speed manual gearbox. The engine is based on the latest EA211 series, and with the use of direct fuel injection and turbocharging it is able to return a combined fuel consumption of just 4.7 litres per 100km (60.1 mpg)( 21.2kmpl), despite being able to take the 985 kg . It can rocket from 0 to 62 mph in 9.2 seconds with a top-speed of 186 km/h (115 mph).
At last I would like to say that new Volkswagen Taigun is coming to rock the SUV market. What you think? Please be open to give your view.
