New images with the Volkswagen Taigun have recently hit the web right after the small crossover has been given the green light for production.
After making its way to the 2012 Sao Paulo Motor Show in Brazil, the Volkswagen Taigun has been recently confirmed for production by the German based automaker and now the model is ending up in our news once again, this time with the help of some new official images which have hit the web. The model in question will target vehicles like the Ford EcoSport and it will be offered with standard front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive being offered as an option.
The final production version of the Volkswagen Taigun will share the same platform with the Up! city car and this means smaller production costs and a smaller final price. The model will be 2,470 mm long and its wheelbase will be 51 mm longer than the one of its smaller brother. The Volkswagen Taigun will be assembled in Pune, India, for right-hand drive markets, and in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for the left-hand drive markets. The carmaker is also considering a third production plant in Kaluga, Russia. Additional details on the model are limited for the moment and will probably be announced once the Taigun will be unveiled, in its production form.
