Volkswagen intends to rule the car world and to do that it needs to tap emerging markets to draw the volumes. And, the introduction of a sub-brand, which would offer more affordable cars for these markets including India, is one of the steps in that direction. What it also needs is more affordable cars from the Volkswagen brand itself. But, not just any car; it needs an SUV. The latter is, after all, one of the fastest growing segments.

This classy Volkswagen Taigun SUV will be equipped with a powerful 1.0-litre TSI petrol power plant, which is said to be the most fuel efficient in its class. The manufacturer claims that this engine comes with an ability to give away 21.27 Kmpl of mileage, which is quite remarkable for a compact SUV.
