YouTuber Answers FAQs About VW Taigun (GT)
This video has been uploaded by Daksh Agnihotri on YouTube. Those who are following his channel for a while know that he bought the regular version of the Taigun which he then exchanged for the GT trim. People asked him if he got an upgrade for free to which answers that he had to pay the difference for the GT trim and got it exchanged at the VW dealership itself. Some other pertinent questions include:
Q. What is the resale value of VW Taigun/Skoda Kushaq?
A. The YouTuber shares that he tried to get a quote for the resale value of the Taigun in the market. However, even after 3-4 days, there was no buyer for the used Skoda Kushaq. That could be due to the EPC issue that people know about which the Kushaq owners have been struggling with for a long time.

Q. Which is better on the hills, VW Taigun or Hyundai Venue?
A. This is also a common question that people have. On the hills, the turbo engine of the Kushaq/Taigun is capable of pulling the car without having to change the gears a lot. If you have the manual variant, then there won’t be any issue. However, the automatic trims could restrict the performance a bit below 2,000 RPM (turbo lag).

Q. Which variant should you buy, 1.0-litre or 1.5-litre?
A. Out of these two, one could opt for a smaller engine to save some money and still get a decent performance, especially compared to the rivals.
