Last year Volkswagen added a second entry in the compact crossover segment with the all-new 2022 Taos. The 5-seat Taos slots below VW’s other compact crossover, the three-row Tiguan. The new Taos design shares elements with other Volkswagen SUVs, starting with a bold grille, sculpted hood and LED light signature similar to the Atlas Cross Sport. The top trim levels feature an illuminated light line from the VW logo in the center of the grille to the headlights — a design element first seen on the recently revealed ID.4 electric SUV. Power comes from a 1.5-liter version of the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine currently offered in the VW Jetta, producing 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
