The All-New 2022 Volkswagen Taos is Here Just in Time for the Holidays

What exactly is the perfect SUV?

First of all, it should have a good amount of storage for those weekend camping trips. It should definitely be fun to drive with lots of power and precision handling. And it should be jam-packed with the latest safety and convenience features. If this sounds about right to you, then the 2022 Volkswagen Taos is the SUV that you’ve been ho-ho-hoping for this holiday season.

Even Santa himself is considering upgrading from his standard sleigh to this spacious and speedy German SUV. So, what exactly makes the Taos stand out from the rest of the VW SUV line-up – or for that matter – other top SUVs in its class? Let’s break down all the best parts of this rising star in our SUV fleet that will be coming to a Volkswagen dealership near you.

The Volkswagen Taos – Spacious, Powerful, and Affordable

Perhaps one of the biggest complaints with SUVs is that they’re too harsh on the ol’ pocketbook, but that’s not the case with the Volkswagen Taos. Clocking in at a reasonable $22,995 MSRP, this is an SUV that ensures drivers get the most for their money. Additionally, the 28 city/36 highway fuel economy makes this one of the few SUVs that won’t have you fearing your next visit to the pump.

Although it’s a compact SUV, the Taos also packs a ton of power under the hood with its 1.5L TSI inline four-cylinder engine. Drivers can expect a nimble and agile SUV with the Taos, capable of taking on any hairpin turn or sharp incline. It has 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft. of torque, ensuring that you can get where you’re going in a hurry.

Finally, like any good SUV, you get a fair amount of storage with the Taos. And although it doesn’t have the interior space of the Tiguan or the Atlas, the Taos is great for those who like their SUV on the slightly smaller side. It features 96.7 cubic ft. of passenger volume (with sunroof) and 65.9 cubic ft. of cargo volume (rear seats folded down). That’s plenty of room to handle any grocery trip or weekend getaway you need it for.

A Worthy Competitor to Other SUVs

When you buy a new SUV, the cost of maintenance is always going to be in the back of your mind. You can take comfort in knowing that the VW Taos outperforms the Honda Pilot, CR-V, Passport, and HR-V in that category. According to the analysis of mid-size SUVs and crossovers performed by Vincentric, LLC using 2021 competitive vehicles, the 2022 VW Taos for sale is estimated to cost drivers less in routine maintenance.

Part of the reason for that is because VW dealerships are actually able to recommend 10,000/1 year between oil changes due to a synthetic blend that VW offers. This is compared to other manufacturers who recommend somewhere between 5,000 to 7,500 miles. This can save the drivers a lot of money over time.

Carefree Coverage for Your Brand-New Volkswagen Taos

One other additional benefit of the 2022 Volkswagen Taos is that it will come with our Carefree Coverage plan. This actually applies to all 2021 and 2022 models in the VW line-up. It breaks down as follows

2 yrs. Service – Scheduled Carefree Maintenance (2 years or 20,000 miles)
3 yrs. Help – Roadside Assistance (3 years or 36,000 miles)
4 yrs. Coverage – New Vehicle Limited Warranty (4 years or 50,000 miles)
5 yrs. Access – Car-Net Remote Access

In the event that you need VW parts or service, you can simply reach out to the VW service center at VW Clear Lake. Your Carefree Coverage will appear in our records, making the process simple and easy.

Safety and Convenience Features Galore

No VW SUV would be complete without a wide assortment of safety and convenience features, and that’s exactly what the Volkswagen Taos gives drivers. One of the stand-outs is the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, which takes the traditional instrument cluster and brings it into the digital age. The Taos also has remote & connected features like wireless charging, remote start, and App Connect, which helps you stay connected to your vehicle through your smartphone.

Additionally, the Volkswagen Taos comes standard with Driver Assistance features such as

  • Dynamic Road Sign Display
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Rear Traffic Alert
  • Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking
  • Light Assist
