Volkswagen says its new Taigo is raring to go! Ahead of the model’s official European première, Volkswagen has revealed the name of its upcoming crossover model.

The Taigo is a new addition to Volkswagen’s range of SUVs in the small vehicle segment. Sitting between the Polo and T-Cross the Taigo VW says it impresses with a dynamic and emotional design. The new model also comes with a multitude of assistance systems and state-of- the-art connectivity. VW goes on to say ‘The wait is over for those who have been looking for a CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle) that combines an elevated seating position with a sporty coupé silhouette. The new Taigo will be launched on the market with economical TSI engines, LED headlights as standard, a modern operating concept, a fully digital cockpit and a multitude of assist systems.’

The Taigo is based on the successful Nivus model from Brazil, and will be manufactured for the European market in Pamplona, Spain. The new CUV will make its début this summer and will be launched on the market at the end of 2021. The baby VW is due in Ireland in December 2021 and will be petrol powered.
