  • The new Taigo makes its European debut




    • First SUV coupé from Volkswagen enters the volume sector
    • New, trendy Lifestyle model with crossover body style
    • All-digital and always on: “Digital Cockpit” and the latest generation of online infotainment systems as standard
    • Top-of-the-range features: IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights and IQ.DRIVE Travel Assist with Lane Assist and pACC


    The stage is set for a new body shape from the Volkswagen brand: With the new compact crossover Taigo1, Volkswagen is launching an SUV coupé on the European market for the first time. The front-wheel drive Taigo is a real crowd-pleaser with its trendy crossover body style, raised seating positions, pioneering connectivity and unrestricted suitability for everyday use. The rear of the five-seater car slopes backwards in the style of a coupé, without restricting headroom in the back seat.

    This sees Volkswagen expand the portfolio of the compact Polo (hatchback) and T-Cross (SUV) models built on the MQB platform with a third chassis variant, which has previously been primarily re-served for high-end models. Numerous latest-
    generation assistance systems guarantee optimum comfort and a high level of safety for all passengers. The Taigo made its virtual European debut on Thursday 29 July at 08:00 a.m. CEST.


    The new Taigo focusses on design, individuality and emotion. With full LED head-lights, an all-digital cockpit and the latest generation of infotainment systems (MIB3) as standard, the SUV coupé meas- uring in at just under 4.26 metres sets high technology standards in its class. The expressive body shape is the first of its kind in the Volkswagen brand’s model portfolio. With a crossover body style and a silhouette like that of a coupé, the new Taigo – just like its Brazilian counterpart the Nivus – is perfectly equipped for winning over new, predominantly young and young-at-heart groups of buyers for Volkswagen. The technical basis of the Taigo is Volkswagen’s MQB. Depending on the options selected, the Taigo also comes with the new IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights and an illuminated radiator grill crossbar.

    The Taigo’s design is characterised by strong proportions, with the silhouette like that of a coupé being particularly striking with the C pillar slanting well forward. Inspired by SUV coupés in higher vehicle classes, this makes the Taigo unique in its sector.

    On the inside, the Taigo scores with an elaborately designed multifunctional steering wheel and modern control elements as standard. The infotainment systems are based on the third generation of MIB3, including an online control unit (eSIM) and “App Connect Wireless” (depending on the configuration). Features such as access to streaming services, natural voice control and cloud-based personalisation using “Volkswagen ID” allow the use of the latest MIB3.1 services, depending on the configuration.

    And when it comes to driver assistance for more comfort and safety, the new SUV coupé is very similar to Volkswagen models from higher sectors. Every Taigo comes with assistance systems such as the surroundings monitoring system “Front Assist”, including city emergency brake function, and the lane departure warning system “Lane Assist” as standard. “IQ.DRIVE Travel Assist” is available as an optional extra, enabling semi-automated driving up to a system-determined top speed of 210 km/h.

    Re: a6 saloon rear pillar trim removal

    From memory you have to do the following:
    1. Remove the D pillar trim - this clips out but has 2 screws at the top.
    2. Remove the rear seat

    It is somewhat confusing why Audi decided to make the port that shows injector seals leaking discharge over the exhaust manifolds.

    Will it be OK for a couple of days of school runs, only 5 minutes each way? Worried it may cause other damage
