The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

When you climb inside the Volkswagen Taigo, you’ll find it easy to get comfy. All trim levels come with plenty of driver's seat adjustment, and you can move the steering wheel up, down, in and out. The only small demerit is that, while all trim levels come with built-in lumbar support, you can’t have adjustable lumbar support, even as an option. 

Better news is that the interior is laid out in a sensible way, with all the relevant buttons and knobs stationed exactly where you’d expect, so you’ll quickly feel at home. What’s more, if you stick with entry-level Life trim, you get physical air conditioning controls, which are easier to use on the move than the touch-sensitive ones in higher trim variants. 

Despite the sloping roofline, it’s much the same story when you look over your shoulder, thanks to the large rear windows. Your view straight out the back isn’t great though, because the small rear window restricts your vision. Fortunately, all versions of the Taigo come with front and rear parking sensors as standard and a rear-view camera can be added as an option.

Bright LED headlights are standard across the range, so you’ll be able to see well after dark. Style trim upgrades them to clever matrix headlights that allow you to keep full beam on without blinding other drivers.

Sat nav and infotainment

All Taigo models come with an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system that has a few touch-sensitive shortcut buttons along the edge of the screen.
