The Volkswagen Taigun is a subcompact crossover SUV (B-segment) manufactured by the German automaker Volkswagen since 2021. Manufactured in India and destined for the Indian market, the Taigun is based on the Volkswagen T-Cross.

The "Taigun" nameplate can be traced from 2012 when Volkswagen unveiled an unrelated smaller crossover SUV concept car with the same name. It was based on the Up city car and was planned to be mass-produced in 2016 for Europe, Brazil and India. However, the Up-based Taigun project was ultimately cancelled. Taigun was officially launched in India on 23rd September of 2021.[1]


The prototype version of the T-Cross-based Taigun was showcased in Auto Expo in February 2020 and is planned on sale by mid-2021.[2] The Taigun is based on the long-wheelbase version of the T-Cross, with several differences. For example, the Taigun shares a similar front-end with the Chinese-market T-Cross. Volkswagen stated the vehicle is built on the Volkswagen Group MQB A0 IN platform dedicated for the Indian market. The platform is also shared with the Škoda Kushaq which debuted in March 2021.[3]

The production version of the Taigun was revealed on 31 March 2021. It is made exclusively for the Indian market, under the VW Group's India 2.0 plan.[4] The only visible changes made to the car are the downsizing of the wheels for 19 inches to 17 inches.[5]

Unrelated to the 2021 Taigun, the Volkswagen Taigun nameplate debuted as a near-production concept subcompact crossover SUV. It had the potential of replacing the hatchback CrossFox, and slotting below the Tiguan compact crossover SUV, competing against mini crossover SUVs alongside the Nissan Juke, the Mini Countryman and the Suzuki SX4.

The prototype was unveiled at the 2012 São Paulo International Motor Show.[6][7] The Taigun was planned to be unveiled by the Volkswagen Group for the model year of 2016,[8] however the plan was scrapped.[9][10] The car was deemed too small, contrary with the market trend and was instead replaced by the Volkswagen T-Cross which went on sale in 2018.
