The Volkswagen Taigun has already been revealed in its production-spec guise last month, though the carmaker withheld the interior design. Now VW has released a render of the interior of the mid-size SUV.
- The production-spec Taigun’s interior design is near-identical to the concept’s
- It will get a 10-inch touchscreen and digital instrument cluster
- It will be offered in a black and grey interior colour scheme as standard, though other colour combinations will also be available.
2021 Volkswagen Taigun: interior details
In terms of design, the interior of the production-spec Taigun is almost identical to that seen on the Taigun concept. The dashboard sports a clean and minimalist design, with a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system taking centre stage. The infotainment system will also come with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and the My Volkswagen connect app (to access the connected car features). Another key feature in the interior is the digital instrument cluster (Virtual Cockpit), something its sibling the Skoda Kushaq misses out on.
Besides this, VW will offer equipment like automatic climate control, USB Type-C ports, wireless charging pad and much more. The German carmaker will offer the Taigun in a black and grey interior colour scheme as standard, though other colour combinations will also be available.
