The coupe-style crossover, based on the Nivus in South America, will go on sale in Europe from the end of this year.
In fact, the Taigo will be the smallest model in Volkswagen’s line of high-powered cars. The crossover that started with the Nivus name goes on sale in Brazil in 2020, and will be renamed Taigo when sold in Europe.
When the Nivus was introduced in 2020, which was introduced as specially developed for the South American market, Volkswagen now says the crossover will be available in some European markets.
Nivus’s MQB A0 structure, or Taigo, shares the same new crossover that is coming to India, the Taigun, as well as the new Virtus sedan. The Taigo will be about 4,200 mm long, similar to the Taigun, with a 2,560 mm wheelbase (about 90 mm shorter than the Taigun).
In Brazil, Nirvus uses a TSI one-liter petrol engine with a capacity of 128 horsepower. A turbo engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission is standard. Volkswagen hasn’t confirmed the Taigo engine options yet, but is expected to resemble the Nirvus.
Nirvus features are also expected to appear on the Taigo, including standard LED taillights, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, electrically adjustable rearview mirrors and wiper sensor, and automatic, copper headlights. digital watch, paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
The highest-equipped version of the Taigo R-Line was revealed by the German carmaker with 17-inch alloy rims, Discover Multimedia system, glossy black paint and all-LED headlights.
The Nirvus model is equipped with the Volks Play infotainment system with a 10.1-inch high-resolution screen, with App Store and WiFi in the car. This system may also appear in Taigo and future Volkswagen SUV models.
Like the Nirvus, the Taigo is expected to be equipped with safety features such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, six airbags and a driver monitoring system.
The Taigo will be produced at Volkswagen’s factory in Pamplona, Spain. The company plans to launch new products in the third quarter and sell in Europe from the end of this year.
