Volkswagen Taigun GT Line and GT Sport Variants Introduced With Prices Starting from Rs 14.08 Lakh


The Volkswagen Taigun’s GT series has expanded with the launch of the new ‘Sport’ variants. This includes the earlier revealed Taigun GT Line and Taigun GT Plus Sport, for which both manual and automatic transmission options are now offered.


Here are the pricing details for both these variants -




GT Line (1-litre turbo-petrol)

GT Line MT

Rs 14.08 Lakh

GT Line AT

Rs 15.63 Lakh

GT Plus Sport (1.5-litre turbo-petrol)

GT Plus Sport MT 

Rs 18.54 Lakh

GT Plus Sport DCT

Rs 19.74 Lakh





The Taigun GT Line variant introduces the GT badge and a sleek blacked-out design to the Taigun, paired with the smaller 1-litre turbo-petrol engine. It is reportedly built on the mid-spec Highline variant, offering similar features such as the 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless charging, rear parking camera, and automatic air conditioning. 


Additionally, this new variant exhibits cosmetic upgrades like larger 17-inch blacked-out alloy wheels, smoked LED headlights, a black interior with grey stitching, red ambient lighting, and various exterior elements that are now blacked out instead of chrome, including the grille and badging.


The additional cost for this cosmetic package compared to the standard Taigun Highline is a modest Rs 20,000, which is applicable for both manual and automatic variants.





The GT Plus Sport variant of the Taigun is powered by the 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engine and is built upon the top-tier Taigun GT Plus model. In terms of appearance, it distinguishes itself with red-colored GT badges located on the front grille, side fenders, and bootlid. This specific variant of the Taigun also has red-painted brake calipers. Other exterior features, including smoked headlights, 17-inch blacked-out alloy wheels, and a dark finish on the front and rear diffuser, are similar to those of the GT Line variant.


While the GT Plus Sport variant shares the all-black interior theme and seat upholstery with the GT Line, it differs itself with red accents on the dashboard, red stitching on the seats, armrest, and steering wheel, as well as metallic pedals.


The feature lineup of the Taigun GT Plus Sport variant is similar to that of the base variant, including a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an 8-inch digital driver’s display, automatic air conditioning, ambient lighting, powered front seats, and a single-pane sunroof. Passenger safety is ensured with six airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), a rear parking camera, and a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).


Despite offering additional features, the GT Plus Sport is priced the same as the GT Plus. However, the latter is presently available at a special discounted rate.
