The sloping rear of the vehicle with its modern signature tail light continues the sporty look. The coupé design is accentuated by the slender dark red LED tail light cluster with continuous strip light and, from the distinctive roof edge to the dynamic rear apron, shows that the new Taigo likes to go beyond the everyday.
The Taigo brings compact dimensions and big design under one roof. Exactly how this will look is up to you. For example, how about a black roof and matching black painted exterior mirror housing? The roof pack is available as an option on the Style and R-line trim, including rear tinted glass from B-pillar backwards, approx. 65% tinted.
A little more colour perhaps? With our Visual Green design package, you give the interior a fresh coat of paint. As you step inside you are greeted by an interior in the light Ceramique colour and by the stylish decorative trim in Visual Green. The matching green decorative seams on the seat cover “tracks” complement the signature colour.
Save yourself the bother of searching for your car key: once you have the key with you and you are no more than 1.5 metres away from your Taigo, the doors and boot lid optionally unlock as if by magic9. You also don’t need the key to start the engine. You just need to press a button
Do you always have a charging cable to hand in case your smartphone runs out of charge when you’re out and about? No need to give this another thought with the Taigo. Simply place your smartphone in the front storage compartment, where it is charged inductively. Just make sure that your smartphone supports the Qi standard. Even better, this feature comes as standard.

IQ.DRIVE Travel Assist comes a standard with the Taigo. This innovative technology, usually found in larger vehicles, comes with a capacitive steering wheel: with its touch surface, it can automatically detect whether you not only proverbially have the vehicle “in hand” at all times:
On motorways and well-developed main roads, in particular, the IQ.DRIVE Travel Assist can maintain the lane and speed for you and take account of the distance to the traffic ahead
In conjunction with the dual clutch gearbox (DSG), you can relax as you negotiate congestion and stop-and-go traffic
The Taigo with the park assist steering, optionally available in the driver assistance package "plus" as of the Life trim, can not only tell you as you pass by whether a parking space is big enough – it can also drive into the parking space for you12. You operate the clutch, accelerator and brake. It does the rest.
