Ultimate Power, Precise Control

Is it possible to make a rugged and ready compact SUV that delivers on performance without compromising design? The short answer is yes. The 2022 VW Taos features a 158-horsepower turbocharged engine that will give you the thrill you need no matter where you’re driving. And when it comes to transmission? You’ve never felt one this smooth. The Taos’ 7-Speed DSG automatic transmission switches gears for you seamlessly, allowing an ultra-smooth ride with a dynamic and effective shifting experience.

VW also offers optional 4MOTION™ all-wheel drive designed to keep you in control of a multitude of roads and conditions. 4MOTION™ makes sure that you have the best stability and traction available by balancing power between the front and rear wheels; this allows you to take your all-weather driving experience to the next level. With a simple flip of a switch, you can change the drive mode to snow mode, on-road mode, off-road mode, or off-road custom mode. You’ll always be in control no matter where the road takes you.

The Bold and the Beautiful

Who said a powerful vehicle couldn’t also be beautiful? When VW designed the Taos, they truly broke the mold; the striking and beautiful exterior lines of the 2022 Taos elicits a strong reaction from everyday drivers and enthusiasts alike. In addition, the compact size means you won’t find any extra bulk on its frame. Want to take the Taos’ look to the next level?

Keeping Your Precious Cargo Safe and Sound

Volkswagen has always taken great pride in the safety of its vehicles, and the Taos is no exception. This SUV was designed to be ready for anything.
