Chronology
PredecessorVolkswagen CrossFox

Volkswagen Taigun is a concept subcompact crossover SUV, which was to be unveiled by the Volkswagen Group for the model year of 2016.[1]

It had the potential of replacing the hatchback CrossFox, and slotting below the Tiguan compact crossover SUV, competing against mini crossover SUVs alongside the Nissan Juke (although the Juke is considered more of a hatchback, due to the height below 62 inches), the Mini Countryman and the Suzuki SX4.

The prototype was unveiled at the 2012 São Paulo International Motor Show.[2][3]
