Here's a small design comparison between the upcoming Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun. Both SUV will compete in the compact SUV segment.
Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun will soon hit the compact SUV space in the Indian market. The official launches of both SUVs are still some time away, but there’s a lot of excitement and anticipation among enthusiasts. In our market, they will rival against the likes of Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. After the introduction of Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun, the competition in the compact SUV segment will get quite fierce. One of the biggest differentiating factors of both SUVs will be their design. In terms of styling, we think that Kushaq and Taigun are already ahead of their Korean rivals. So, here's a small design comparison between Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun.
A few days back, Skoda revealed the production-spec Kushaq, and in our opinion, it looks amazing. The front fascia of Skoda Kushaq gets the company’s signature butterfly grille and split-headlight setup on both sides. The front bumper of the car is a slightly toned-down version from the concept version, but it looks very aggressive. At the back, the all-new Skoda Kushaq gets a sporty-looking rear spoiler, wrap-around LED taillights and reflector elements.
The Skoda SUV wears heavy cladding along with a rugged-looking skid plate at the front and rear, which makes the car look more rugged. On the side, the Kushaq also gets five-spoke 17-inch rims and roof rails. On the other hand, VW has not shown the production-spec version of Taigun, but the concept version was first showcased at the Auto Expo 2020. The upcoming VW Taigun looks quite similar to the T-Cross sold in foreign markets and specifically to the one retailed in China.
It will get a boxy design language with rectangular styling elements. The front and rear bumpers make the VW SUV stand-out as it gets piano black cladding with some chrome. Upfront, it gets twin-pod LED headlights with LED DRLs. The front grille of the car gets three chrome slats with the new VW logo placed in between. The lower air dam of the SUV looks pretty aggressive. The rear end of the VW Taigun gets an LED light bar connecting the taillights. In terms of looks, Skoda Kushaq looks a lot more sophisticated and modern, while the Taigun looks too blingy from a few angles, but we are still waiting for the production-spec model.
