Taigun Rivals:

The main competitors of Taigun are Seltos and Creta, which are one of the top selling cars in India. Taigun still offers good features which competes neck to neck to the Korean siblings. The German siblings both Kushaq and Taigun offer great build and great driving dynamics. The Korean siblings have a advantage that they offer a Diesel engine, the German sadly doesn't offer one. But still it is very early to judge. Now MG has also revealed their Astor with ADAS into it, but Taigun doesn't get those but Volkswagen has packed good features into the Taigun and they have priced it well.
