In September 2021 Volkswagen launched the Taigun SUV in India. At that time the Taigun got an introductory base price of ₹10.50 lakh which goes up to ₹17.50 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top variant. Followed by numerous price hikes now the SUV starts at ₹11.56 lakh and goes up to ₹19 lakh (ex-showroom). Volkswagen today has launched the Taigun GT Plus variant with ventilated seats.
Volkswagen Taigun Ventilated Seats – GT Plus Variant
At ₹18.96 lakh (ex-showroom) Volkswagen has launched the Taigun GT Plus with an option of ventilated seats. This may be a move when competition in this segment is really high and largely dominated by Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
At the time of launch Volkswagen didn’t offered ventilated and leatherette seats in 1.5-litre TSI GT Plus variant to keep price in check. Earlier it was limited to 1.0-litre TSI Topline variant only. Now Volkswagen is offering ventilated seats as an option on Taigun’s GT Plus variant. It costs ₹25,000 more than the regular GT Plus variant without ventilated seats feature. At ₹18.71 lakh (ex-showroom) customers still can go for GT Plus variant without front seats ventilation.
Considering the fact that India’s has a scorching heat during summer season this feature definitely comes handy. If anyone is paying ₹18 lakh then it definitely makes sense to increase your budget little bit and get cooled seats.
