Volkswagen Officially Unveils 2022 Taos Compact Utility
On Tuesday evening Volkswagen officially unveiled its all new Taos compact utility vehicle, further broadening their SUV portfolio to match every mainstream consumer family size and taste. The Taos will help VW better compete in the largest single SUV segment in the U.S. Positioned under the Tiguan in size and price point, the Taos is the fifth new SUV introduced by VW for North America in four years. Indeed you can see the impact of other VW utilities in the Taos's attractive yet conservative design. The front facia and grille remind one of the Atlas Cross Sport, while the also compact Tiguan design language can be see in the profile of the Taos. Compared to the Tiguan, the Taos has over over nine inches less overall length, yet clever packaging allows the interior space to be less than two cubic feet shy of its larger brother. The interior is totally modern yet straightforward, with large digital displays, including an eight inch center touch screen, and more than ample driver assist and connectivity features. Power for the Taos is the same 158-horsepower 1.5-liter turbocharged I4 that powers the Jetta sedan. Both front and all-wheel drive models are available. Built in Mexico, expect the 2022 Taos to arrive at dealers before next summer.
