Re: Volkswagen Taigo R-Line in depth Review:

Your right about the 1.5 engine. Back in 2019 I was looking to trade in my 2017 Q2 1.4. It had been replaced by the 1.5 which at the time had a bad reputation for ‘kangerooing’, so I avoided it and went for a 1.0L T Cross. As good as the 1.0L is, it did lack punch when overtaking. With good feedback...

Re: Volkswagen Taigo R-Line in depth Review:

Thanks, but I have had a second look and sadly there is no ratchet type height adjustment fitted, (the car in the showroom was the same). It does extend outwards, just no vertical adjustment. So really just a pull up lid.. A minor thing really, and easily overcome by a discreet roll of dense grey s...

Thanks, but I have had a second look and sadly there is no ratchet type height adjustment fitted, (the car in the showroom was the same). A minor thing really, and easily overcome by a discreet roll of dense grey sponge to act as a wedge. It does extend outwards, just no vertical adjustment. So real...

Re: My new Taigo has also arrived!

Hi, Thanks, the screen shots above are from the configurator, so any photos would be identical. My preference was not to have the roof rails, which meant ordering the Sunroof, Probably a good thing as the R line has a black headlining so it’s a bit gloomy without one. You may well have Rear cross tr...

My new Taigo has also arrived!

Ordered on the 16th December, and collected last week, so 19 weeks for delivery which I thought was very good in todays world. Coming from an R Line T Cross I was expecting a T Cross with a sloping roof, but far from it. The extra length and lower roof line gives it a streamline look all of it’s own...

Re: Volkswagen Taigo R-Line in depth Review:

Hi Sam, Well done, I think you covered most of it. I think it is the Life model that has the basic front seats, Style and R line both have the same comfort sports seats. You confirmed my suspicion that the arm rest is not adjustable, I noticed it on the Life model in the showroom and hoped it would ...

Re: Spare wheel size - VW say NO - FINAL UPDATE

VW still say the spare wheel 205/55/R16 will fit the T Cross RLine and is safe, but WILL NOT FIT the Taigo. I have not had a reply to my last E Mail asking why not. I emailed my dealer without disclosing I was trying to get this resolved with Customer services, and said that in the unlikely event th...

Re: Order placed

Me again, I’m sure you will be happy with it when it arrives. I had second thoughts about the kings red, and was lucky enough today to get it changed to Pure white with a Deep Black Pearl roof (£590), with the compulsory roof and mirror black pack (£35) so cheaper than the Kings Red. Order placed 16...

Re: Order placed

I’m glad you speak well of the 1.5, I was going to have another 1.0 but decided to try the 1.5 now they seem to have resolved the kangerooing issues. Although £165 extra I chose the Kings Red. Photos and You Tube do show it in different shades, and even a Golf in the showroom under the sparkly light...
