Volkswagen has unveiled the Taigun Concept at the 2012 Sao Paulo International Motor Show. It basically seems like a future small SUB based on the VW Up!
The vehicle which is 3,859 mm (98 inches) long, 1,728 mm (43.9 inches) wide and 1,570 mm (39.9 inches) tall can accommodate four passengers.
The weight of the vehicle is 985 kg (2,172 pounds) and has 280 liters of cargo space. The Taigun Concept is powered by a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, which churns out 110 PS (108 hp) and 175Nm (129 lb-ft).
“The torque-strong three-cylinder is an ideal engine for such a compact SUV; it is a companion for driving through the urban environment that is as efficient as it is dynamic,” Ulrich Hackenberg, VW Board Member for Technical Development, was quoted as saying.
