2022 VW Taos Performance & Efficiency

2022 Volkswagen Taos Review

Much of the beauty of the 2022 Volkswagen Taos comes from its powerfully efficient performance. Driven by a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the VW Taos effortlessly churns out 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

Alongside its turbocharged engine, the VW Taos comes with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. This helps it reach its remarkable EPA-estimated 28 city/36 highway MPG.* So, while you enjoy standard SUV power, you won’t have to worry about making constant stops to refuel. 

The VW Taos puts all the control in your hands with the 4Motion® all-wheel drive system with active control. This comes with four unique drive modes to help you find your perfect driving feel. Simply turning the drive mode select dial, you can choose between:

  • Snow Mode
  • On-Road Mode
  • Off-Road Mode
  • Off-Road Custom Mode

The seamless power, jaw-dropping fuel efficiency, and intelligent control work to make the performance of the Volkswagen Taos unlike that of most similar SUVs.
