Volkswagen Taigun Dashboard
The cabin should liven up with a brighter colour theme

The interior of the Volkswagen Taigun has been revealed in the most recent render, providing a proper view of the soon-to-be launched compact SUV’s dashboard.

At the end of March, the German carmaker unveiled the Taigun, but only revealed the exterior images of the car, while the brand was tight-lipped about the interior.

However, here it is, the Taigun’s interior, which is a typical Volkswagen affair. The dashboard is plain and simple, but has a contrasting grey-coloured trim to liven things up on the top half.

The bottom half of the dash comes in grey and so do bits of the door cards, while the centre console carries the same theme, along with the upholstery for the seats. Although this is the standard interior theme, other themes will also be available.

As can be seen from the image, there are 2 large digital screens in the Volkswagen Taigun. The 10-inch central touchscreen should be the latest affair, sporting crisp graphics and a easy-to-use interface.

It will come with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, connected car features, while other bits such as a wireless smartphone charger, USB Type C sockets, will also be on offer.

There are not many buttons to be found in the cabin of the compact SUV, but there are some on the steering, a few below the central air vents and then there are the ubiquitous window switches.

Sadly, there is no image of the rear seats, but, from what I gather, the car does have enough legroom for adults, while, seating 3 people abreast will likely be a tight fit.

To be launched soon in the market, the Volkswagen Taigun will come with the choice of 2 turbo petrol engines – a 1.0-litre unit with 115 PS and 175 Nm and a 1.5-litre motor good for 150 PS and 250 Nm of torque.

A 6-speed manual will be offered with both the engines, but, when it comes to the automatic transmissions, the smaller motor will get a 6-speed torque converter, while the larger engine can be had with a 7-speed DSG.
