    Winner of the carandbike Car of the Year & Compact SUV of the Year award in 2022, the Taigun is built on the highly localised MQB-A0-IN platform, which has since also spawned sister model Skoda Kushaq, and the compact Sedan twins - Volkswagen Virtus & Skoda Slavia. Along with Kushaq, the Volkswagen Taigun also secured a 5-star rating in the Global NCAP crash test, scoring 5-stars not only for Adult occupant protection, but also child occupant protection, becoming the first car to have achieved the feat.
