Volkswagen South Africa has announced the launch date for the soon-to-arrive Taigo, with the local arm of the German marque saying the coupé-styled compact SUV will join its T SUV range in the first half of 2022. In addition, the VWSA has confirmed the Taigo will be available with only one engine-transmission option. 

The in-vogue crossover range will be powered by the firm’s 1.0-litre, turbocharged petrol motor. The turbo-triple unit directs 85 kW exclusively to the front axle via VW’s DSG dual-clutch transmission.
