Volkswagen has launched a new limited-run Taigun GT Edge Trail Edition with cosmetic add-ons. Priced at Rs 16.30 lakh, the new Taigun GT Edge Trail Edition is priced similarly to the Taigun GT on which it is based. Here are all the changes which the new Taigun GT Edge Trail Edition gets over the standard Taigun GT, along with the tyre option offered in it as standard:
Volkswagen Taigun GT Edge Trail Edition: Tyres & Wheels
The Volkswagen Taigun GT Edge Trail Edition retains the tyre option from the Taigun GT on which it is based, with 205/60 R16 Goodyear Assurance Triplemax 2 tyre wrapped over 16-inch alloy wheels on offer. The Taigun is highly regarded as a fun-to-drive SUV, following Volkswagen’s legacy of offering driver-friendly cars in India. The Goodyear Assurance Triplemax 2 matches that fun element of the Taigun GT, offering a greater sense of control on wet surfaces and high-speed cornering.
For better control on braking over wet surfaces, the Goodyear Assurance Triplemax 2 is made of a boosted compound formulation with additional adhesive resin. The innovative asymmetric tread pattern and cavity design of the tyre allow it to have a squarish footprint, thus improving handling and control over cornering. The Goodyear Assurance Triplemax 2 also has narrow shoulder grooves and an increased number of pitches, which reduce road noises and enhance ride comfort.
