2022 Volkswagen Taos Review

The Volkswagen Taos proves you don’t have to be big to be bold. It’s got plenty of features and plenty of room on the inside—it just doesn’t have any extra bulk on the outside. Choose from three trims: The S SE and the well-appointed SEL. With its turbocharged engine available 7-speed DSG transmission and available 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive your Taos is ready for all kinds of fun. And it gets up to 36 miles per gallon so your fun can go farther. Inside your Taos you’ll find the perfect combination of form and function. There’s almost a hundred cubic feet of comfortable modern passenger space. Fold down the rear seats and you can pack in almost 66 cubic feet of gear. Volkswagen Car-Net keeps you connected the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit keeps you informed and available IQ.DRIVE adds confidence to every trip. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Taos that’s all yours. The Volkswagen Taos. It’s just right.
The Volkswagen Taos is loaded with technology. Volkswagen App-Connect uses Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability to bring your smartphone apps to the MIB touchscreen display. Volkswagen Digital Cockpit uses a customizable 8-inch digital display to show 21 viewing options including gauges navigation the song you’re listening to and more. Volkswagen Car-Net turns your smartphone into a remote control for your Taos. Now you can roll up your windows lock your doors find your car and more—all from your smartphone. The Volkswagen Taos. Integrated into your life.
When you drive your Volkswagen Taos you’ll drive with peace of mind. Airbags an Intelligent Crash Response System and a rigid safety cage with front and rear crumple zones are there if worse comes to worst but Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking help you avoid collisions in the first place. The Blind Spot Monitor helps you change lanes more safely and the first time Rear Traffic Alert saves you from getting hit you’ll never want to back out of a driveway or parking spot without it again. The Volkswagen Taos. It’s your safe zone.
The Volkswagen Taos doesn’t just meet expectations it beats them. The fun starts with a peppy 1.5-liter engine. Add an eight-speed automatic transmission that makes the best use of all 158 horsepower and you can get up to 36 miles per gallon. 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive adds a seven-speed DSG Automatic Transmission. 4MOTION features Active Control which lets you choose from four Drive Mode settings. Just twist a knob and adjust engine transmission steering and more to road and weather conditions. The Volkswagen Taos. More fun than meets the eye.
