Here is a little comparison by a Volkswagen Vento owner between VW Taigun and MG Astor to help you decide which one to buy. Both these SUVs compete in the mid-size SUV segment and offer completely different experiences. Both these are the latest entrants in the market and are about to launch soon. People have seen the SUVs are sharing their experiences. It is through this feedback that we will be able to have a great comparison between these two SUVs. So, without any further ado, let us get into it the comparison.
Taigun Astor Comparison – Which One To Buy?
There are strengths and weaknesses to each of these SUVs. Therefore, it is a matter of personal preference and what you are looking for in your SUV. The MG Astor is India’s first car with level 2 ADAS features. That, in itself, is a thing to boast for MG. Apart from that, people who went to see the SUV in flesh reported these features.
- The exterior paint quality is superb. The orange colour looks great in real-world conditions.
- This applies to the red interior theme too. The red shade looks better in person compared to the photos.
- The gaps at various places on the body panels are consistent which signifies good build quality and attention to detail.
- The interior material quality is something that the MG Astor has just nailed. Entering the cabin reminds one of the cars a segment above. There are soft-touch materials at various parts and the feel and quality of the switches and buttons are top-notch too.
- On the flip side, the under-thigh support for front and rear seats is not great. Also, the rear seats are not wide enough or comfortable enough to fit three adults.
- The audio system is not the best when compared to the Seltos, Harrier of Hector.
- The AI Virtual Assistant may be more of a gimmick with no dedicated use.
The VW Taigun has also been launched. The guy who went to see the Astor also shared his experience with the Taigun.
- The Infotainment System is great and the Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto work seamlessly.
- The build quality feels solid with heavy doors and a boot gate.
- The exterior paint quality also feels premium and gives a long-lasting feel.
- The driving dynamics are expected to be exquisite although the Astor has not yet been test-driven.
- The rear seats are more spacious.
- The materials used inside the cabin are hard plastic and feel below the standard across the segment.
- The premium price point is not justified by the lack of features compared to the Korean rivals.
