Introducing the 2022 Volkswagen Taos

Volkswagen plans to fill the space between two of its current crossover offerings by adding SUVs. The Volkswagen Taos offers impressive performance, upscale styling and a wealth of standard and optional amenities.

Technology

The variety of upscale technological features offered include a 12.3-inch digital cockpit that comes in all trim levels. Drivers have the option of customizing the display to suit their needs. The steering wheel is covered in synthetic upholstery, which may come with heating ability if desired. The infotainment system has an 8-inch touch-screen that additionally features voice command operation. The system also comes with a premium stereo. Each vehicle also features Volkswagen's Car-Net that converts the SUV into a Wi-Fi hotspot with a service subscription.

The Car-Net app provides owners with a variety of benefits. Start the engine remotely using a smartphone. Lock or unlock the doors. Turn on the lights or honk the horn. Link the system with Alexa if desired. Monitor the vehicle's location and performance when other family members drive the Volkswagen Taos. The app is also handy for anti-theft function, emergency roadside assistance and vehicle location.

USB ports keep devices charged and ready to use. Options include a wireless charging station for mobile devices.

Performance

All of the new Volkswagen Taos models have 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines. The engines are rated as generating 158 hp and 184 lb-ft torque. The new design was developed to ensure that vehicles available in Shrewsbury, MA have increased responsiveness while being fuel-efficient. The motors are an upgrade from the 1.4-liter versions currently available in the Golf and Jetta. The new powertrain also comes with an automatic transmission with eight speeds and FWD. However, Volkswagen plans on making AWD an option.

Safety

Volkswagen supplies each SUV with a generous array of standard safety features. The amenities include:

  • Autonomous front emergency braking
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop/go
  • Blind-spot monitoring and warnings
  • Lane-keeping assistance
  • Adaptive headlights
  • Automatic high-beam headlights

Optional add-ons include park distance monitoring and control.

Style

The VW Taos boast a modern, classical style. The angular front end has a somewhat athletic appearance and includes LED headlights. Upper trim levels feature an illuminated horizontal bar across the mesh grille that bears the VW logo. The SUV has a level silhouette that features smooth curves and lines along with squared and flared wheel wells. Consumers familiar with the Volkswagen brand, and the Tiguan in particular, notice some semblance in physical style between the two models. The C-pillars and vehicle rear are strikingly similar. The VW Taos will also be available with different wheel sizes.

Interior Comfort

The Volkswagen Taos interior provides exceptional views thanks to the outboard windows that enable visibility all the way around the vehicle. Despite being a compact SUV, the VW Taos has a spacious and comfortable interior. The rear seats offer more head and legroom than competitive models in the same class. All seating is amply supportive, which makes for a comfortable long ride. Base models have two-tone fabric upholstery that is upgraded to synthetic leather or leather in upper trim levels. Options include heated and cooled seats. The cargo area provides 28.1 cubic feet of space, which extends to 66.3 cubic feet after folding the rear seats.

Trim Levels

The 2022 Volkswagen Taos comes in the base S trim level in addition to the SE and SEL trims.
