The Volkswagen Taigun is a new subcompact crossover SUV to be unveiled by the Volkswagen Group for the 2016 model year.[1] It will have possibility of replacing the CrossFox hatchback and will slot below the Tiguan compact crossover SUV and will be one of the few 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 & the Suzuki SX4. A prototype of this vehicle was unveiled at the 2012 São Paulo International Motor Show.[2][3] VW started production of the Taigun at its AutoEuropa plant in Palmela, Portugal in February 2017.[4]
