Volkswagen has fitted the Taigun with a new feature: a boot lid with an outside mounted spare wheel. The Taigun is powered by a 1.0 liter 3 cylinder TSI engine producing 109hp, mated to a six speed manual gearbox.
The Taigun averages 4.7 1/100km and emits 110g of CO2 per kilometer. The 109hp engine is enough to accelerate it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 186 km/h (115.5 mph). The crossover concept has a boot volume 280 liters (9.9 cu-ft). When the rear bench seat is folded down, volume increases to 996 liters (35.1 cu-ft).
