The Taigo has been designed with you in mind, with intuitive innovation that makes every aspect of your journey feel effortless. Let’s go – in the new Taigo.

T stands for Taigo

Taigo derives its name from a combination of ‘tiger’ and ‘Taiga’, which is a forest in the Northern Hemisphere. Taigo symbolises strength, outdoors and adventure. The SUV’s name starts with the letter ‘T’ and follows Volkswagen’s naming convention for its SUVs in South Africa.

Compact SUV coupé

The new Volkswagen Taigo impresses with its trendy crossover body style, raised seating position and pioneering connectivity. Numerous driver assistance systems guarantee comfort and a high level of safety for all passengers. With full LED headlights, a digital cockpit and the latest generation of infotainment systems, the Taigo sets high technology standards in its class. The Taigo will be offered with Volkswagen’s popular tilting and sliding panoramic sunroof. The Volkswagen Taigo will only be available with the 1.0 TSI 85kW DSG® engine.

Expressive form the start

With a coupé-like shape, no wonder the Taigo is unique. The car’s sloping roofline leads to a spoiler on the rear highlighting its sporty appearance. A side view of the Taigo is characterised by defining lines guiding your eyes seamlessly from the front to the back of the exterior. The stylish honeycomb grille connects the matrix LED headlights framing the front of the car and its expansive width. Illuminated light strips in both the front and rear of the exterior give it a polished look making it almost impossible to ignore its design-orientated appearance. The logo projection lighting epitomises the car’s modern expression giving it its Volkswagen personality.


The soft-touch dashboard accentuates the car’s comfortable and welcoming interior, combined with high-quality technology, taking the car to the next level. The digital Infotainment system with a 6.5-inch radio display on the Life model and an 8-inch radio display on the Style and R-Line models, digital cockpit and Beats® sound system* allow for a driving experience personified by your taste.

* Optional with Style and R-Line models
