Getting to Know the Different Trims on the 2022 Volkswagen Taos

When it comes to auto lingo, trim level refers to the different features and equipment that a car offers. Typically, a base trim level is offered for a vehicle with one or two additional trim levels that offer more luxury features and benefits. If you’ve ever looked into one of our many VW Jetta sedans for sale or the ever-popular VW Tiguan for sale, then you’re probably already familiar with how they come in different trim levels.

The 2022 Volkswagen Taos is no different in that regard. It comes in three distinct trim levels: S, SE, and SEL. The S is the base model while the SEL is the most luxurious and advanced trim level. We’ll break down each one below, starting with the base trim level and then working our way up to the SEL.
