Safety Ratings in Latin NCAP and Global NCAP Tests

The Volkswagen Taigun, manufactured in India, has recently achieved excellent safety ratings in the Latin NCAP crash tests, receiving a 5-star rating. This follows its previous accomplishment of a perfect 5-star rating in the Global NCAP tests earlier this year, making it one of the safest compact SUVs available in India.

Variations Tested & Performance

It is important to note that the Taigun model tested by Latin NCAP differed from the one sold in India, as it featured Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and came equipped with six standard airbags. In contrast, the version tested by Global NCAP only had two airbags.

In the Adult Occupant Protection category of the Latin crash tests, the Taigun scored 36.99 points (equivalent to 92.47 percent), while for Child Occupant Protection, it achieved a score of 45 points (92 percent). Furthermore, the car attained a rating of 55.14 percent in pedestrian and vulnerable road user protection, and 83.28 percent in safety assist.

Extensive Safety Testing

The Taigun underwent various tests to demonstrate its safety capabilities, including frontal impact, side impact, side pole impact, whiplash, pedestrian protection, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), speed assist, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC).

According to Ashish Gupta, the Volkswagen Taigun and Virtus are unmatched by any other car in India in terms of safety.

Importance in India 2.0 Strategy and Pricing

The Volkswagen Taigun holds significant importance in the group's India 2.0 strategy and is priced between Rs 11.62 lakh and Rs 19.46 lakh (ex-showroom prices). Notably, other vehicles from the group, namely the Skoda Kushaq, Skoda Slavia, and Volkswagen Virtus, have also achieved 5-star safety ratings in the recent Global NCAP crash tests.
