Volkswagen Reveals the new 2022 Volkswagen Taos

Volkswagen has been on a roll lately. For 2019, they introduced the midsize Atlas SUV, which was a huge success. Next came the 2020 Atlas Cross Sport, making for a sportier, dedicated two-row midsize SUV. Then came the all-electric long-range 2021 ID.4, which is currently available for reservation. And now comes the all-new vehicle, the Taos, which Volkswagen officially revealed on October 13th, 2020.

So, what exactly is the new 2022 Volkswagen Taos?

All-New Volkswagen Entry Compact SUV Announced

The 2022 Volkswagen Taos (pronounced like “house” with a “t”) is what Volkswagen is classifying as an “entry compact SUV,” slotting below the Tiguan in the compact SUV lineup. It measures 175.8 inches long (9.3 inches shorter than the Tiguan) and can hold 28.1 cu-ft and 66.3 cu-ft of cargo with the second-row seats in place and folded down, respectively. It features a 1.5-liter turbo-four that pumps out 158 horses and 184 lb-ft of torque. FWD models have an eight-speed automatic. 4Motion® AWD models have a seven-speed DSG® dual-clutch automatic. The 2022 Toas will be available three trims: S, SE, and SEL.

The VW Digital Cockpit gauge cluster is standard on all 2022 Taos models. Car-Net is standard, as is a Wi-Fi hotspot.
