Volkswagen India has unveiled its new SUV concept – the Taigun at the 12th Auto Expo. The Volkswagen's new SUV concept, Taigun comes fitted with a highly efficient 1.0-litre turbocharged TSI petrol engine, which produces 108 hp of power and 175Nm of torque. Volkswagen is planning to launch the SUV Taigun in India in the near future.

Apart from this, the company also showcased the World Rally Championship winning Polo R WRC. The Polo R WRC put up a magnificent performance last year, with French driver Sebastien Ogier and co-driver Julien Ingrassia winning the 2013 World Rally Championship. Powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged TSI petrol engine, which produces more than 300 horsepower, the Polo R WRC is a technological tour-de-force and is one of the finest competition machines to ever emerge from Germany in recent times.

In addition to the Taigun and Polo R WRC, Volkswagen also displayed its full India line-up of cars, including all Polo and Vento variants, the Jetta, and the Passat, at the Auto Expo.
