While there is no word yet on the price or when Taigun would be launched in India, it is expected to be launched within a year.
 
Isn't it ironic, a country where people love their SUVs to be big, one of the fastest growing automotive sector is that of compact SUVs.

Taigun is a very interesting product and will create its own space in the segment that getting crowded ever since it was started with Skoda Yeti. If priced right, it can be a serious competitor to Ford Ecosoprt and Renault Duster, current segment kings on their ends.

Indeed Its ironic. But I guess the popularity of compact SUV segment is more because of the utility and compactness of the vehicle rather than the looks because I feel Compact SUV'S are designed more sportingly rather than True SUVish types, IMHO. And a true SUV lover will never ever vouch for the compact SUV segment ,a SUV is a SUV , you make it compact, It becomes a Car , it's as simple as that. Popularity lies in the fact that people get the tag of a Big- Sub SUV at a lesser price with many appealing features.

Ofcourse between this lies the utility, good handling characteristics , and loads of features , which are good at their part.

Actually my next compact would be a compact SUV primarily because the views are much better. So it gives a good mix of compact dimensions in the city and higher (comfier) seating for long drives.

nice looking compact SUV. any news if it has a 4x4 option? in a nation with high fuel prices every one will not be able to afford a real SUV which are all gas guzzlers. so the concept of compact SUV will satisfy the yearning of such people.
