Under the Hood of the 2022 VW Taos

The standard engine inside the new VW Taos SUV packs plenty of punch inside the smallest package in the impressive VW SUV lineup. It's a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that packs a total of 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. It's a modified version of the engine found in the VW Jetta sedan but with additional horsepower. Standard FWD models run on an eight-speed automatic transmission and available AWD pairs with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission instead.

Official EPA estimates have not been released, so there is no official VW Taos MPG figure to take note of at the current time. If fuel-efficiency and lessening your carbon footprint are what you want in your next SUV, consider the purely electric-powered new electric VW ID.4.

Inside the Volkswagen Taos

The VW Taos may not take up too much room on the highway lanes but the stacks of suitcases, barrage of backpacks, and well-positioned passengers won't know the difference. Both those riding up front near the intricately designed infotainment system and those in the back stretching out in the rear row will enjoy plenty of room to maneuver as the miles pile up. You'll be able to bring plenty of stuff along with you when trekking out for fun far from the driveway.

Just because you're not paying a hefty premium doesn't mean your interior cabin can't feel like an elite experience. The materials wrapping the seats and smart storage containers throughout the cabin are of the highest quality and built to last. If you're having a really good time outdoors, you'll probably end up more than a little dirty. This cabin was created to take the beating that's sometimes necessary for a great time and return looking good when it's time to clean up.

An impressive suite of advanced driver-assistance features rounds out an excellent choice for families that chase fun whenever possible. The interior is not too bulky but fits substantially more than a sedan can. If this were a fairy tale, there'd be a hungry little girl standing next to this gleaming new model in our new VW inventory, exclaiming gleefully that this new VW crossover is "juuuuuuust right!"

Frequently Asked Questions About the VW Taos 2022

New Volkswagen cars make quite the splash when they come out because drivers are aware of VW cars dependability and longevity. That's why we receive so many questions in advance of each new model's debut. Here's some questions we're already receiving from eager drivers that want to know more about the VW Taos release date, how this new crossover SUV compares to other VW models, and more.

What is the 2022 VW Taos release date?

The VW Taos release date is expected to be soon in Spring 2021. You can already find educated guesses from industry experts on the trim levels that will be available, the engine and transmission options inside the new model, and more. Those experts are excited to see Volkswagen come out with an SUV that fits between their sedan class and larger SUVs. This is a clear commitment from VW to bridge the gap between the smaller and bigger models across the VW portfolio. Classic Volkswagen designs in both more miniscule models like the VW Beetle and powerful people-movers like the VW Bus have become a part of the American automotive landscape. They've guided several decades of high-performing cars in the mold of these pillar models. Think of the VW Taos as the car that will fill the middle ground forever and spur on a continuous revaluation of how Volkswagen cars move the world forward.

Is the VW Taos replacing the VW Tiguan?

The VW Tiguan is larger than the VW Taos and fills in a different place in the lineup. This isn't a replacement, though. It's more of a spunky, smaller sibling that the larger VW SUV models will have a hard time handling. Once the secret is out about the new baby, everyone is going to want to test drive the newest iteration of Volkswagen genius on four wheels.

What is the size difference between the VW Taos and the Tiguan?

The VW Tiguan is longer than the VW Taos and slightly taller as well. While the widths of the car are similar, the Tiguan is clearly a larger SUV and can even seat up to seven. The VW Taos, as a subcompact SUV, is smaller than the VW Tiguan and seats five passengers in two rows. As a larger car, the VW Tiguan tows more and has more horsepower than the junior option.
