Which car can we expect early, SKODA VISION IN or VW TAIGUN?
on 18 Mar 2021
As confirmed by Volkswagen recently, its compact SUV, the Taigun, will be launched by mid-2021. It will be based on the MQB-AQ-IN platform and will be a petrol-only offering. On the other hand, Skoda is all set to take the wraps off the production-spec model on March 18. The Kushaq will be the carmaker’s first made-in-India SUV with up to 95 percent localisation and the first SUV to be based on the MQB-A0-IN (the localised version of the VW Group’s smallest modular MQB-A0 platform.
Skoda Kushaq will come in a 5-seater layout. The Kushaq will be a petrol-only offering with two engine options: 1.0-litre TSI (115PS/175Nm) and 1.5-litre TSI (150PS/250Nm). The smaller engine will get the choice of 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions as seen in the Polo, while the more powerful engine will be offered with a 7-speed DSG automatic and a 6-speed MT.
It would be unfair to give a verdict here, the build quality is not certain to a particular brand and it may vary from vehicle to vehicle. In general, all the aforementioned manufacturers offer good build quality.
