New 2022 VW Taos

From roomy accommodations and refined styling to advanced tech and responsive performance, there are numerous reasons why VW SUV owners love what they drive. However, since Volkswagen SUVs are typically on the larger side, there hasn't been an option for SoCal drivers seeking something with smaller space requirements. Fortunately, that's all changed with the arrival of the 2022 VW Taos. While it's technically a "subcompact" crossover, the new Taos is one of the larger nameplates in the segment, which allows it to deliver ample passenger space and cargo capacity while maintaining a city-friendly physical footprint.


Under the hood, the VW Taos finds plenty of motivation in a responsive 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that sends 158 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels by way of an eight-speed automatic transmission. And for enhanced handling and control in inclement conditions, 4MOTION all-wheel-drive is available across the lineup, bringing with it a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and a more advanced multilink rear suspension.


Despite its subcompact designation, the VW Taos is one of the segment's roomiest nameplates, providing stylish and refined accommodations for five, with an impressive 38 inches of rear legroom. Behind the second row, Taos reserves 28 cubic feet for your luggage or groceries. And when you need even more cargo space, the rear seats fold easily, expanding capacity up to 66 cubic feet.

Hawthorne drivers have numerous available options to increase comfort and convenience. Some examples include CloudTex or leather seating surfaces, heated and ventilated seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a panoramic sunroof.

Tech and Safety Features

Volkswagen's App-Connect multimedia system makes it easy for Taos drivers to stay connected, entertained, and heading the right direction. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto seamlessly integrate your compatible smartphone with the 6.5-inch or available 8-inch touchscreen, providing intuitive access to apps and functions like hands-free communication, streaming and stored media, Google or Apple Maps, and much more. Additionally, shoppers can opt for the fully customizable VW Digital Cockpit Pro in place of a traditional instrument cluster, which allows you to configure the display to better suit your preferences.

While there's no substitute for staying alert behind the wheel, the VW Taos offers an array of advanced technologies to help enhance driver awareness and hazard avoidance. Available driver aids include:

  • Front Assist (collision mitigation)
  • Lane Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Travel Assist
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Rear Traffic Alert
