2023 Volkswagen Taos

2023 Volkswagen Taos - Front View Profile

Are you looking for a compact crossover with adequate space for the whole family? The 2023 Volkswagen Taos is part of the subcompact SUV class, but ample legroom in both rows and a large cargo area allude to a spacious interior.

With a turbocharged engine under the hood and strong fuel economy, VW’s smallest crossover has a lot to like. To learn more about the Taos, schedule a test drive at VW of Marion or drop by our showroom.

Taos Trim Options

The new Volkswagen Taos is sold in three trims: S, SE, and SEL. Choose between a functional, affordable cabin or a trim with a more upscale, luxurious feel. All three trims come with standard front-wheel drive, but you can upgrade to all-wheel drive for better traction on slippery roads. The Taos has a base MSRP of $24,155 for the S, $28,925 for the SE, and $34,535 for the SEL.

The base S trim features cloth upholstery, manually adjustable front seats, and a 6.5-inch infotainment screen. If you upgrade to the SE trim, you get a power-adjustable driver’s seat, synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, and remote start. The SEL trim has a luxurious cabin with genuine leather upholstery, a premium eight-speaker stereo, and automatic climate control.

Exterior Design

The Taos comes in a wide range of color options to add a personal touch to your crossover. The S trim is available in five exterior color options: Pure White, Pyrite Silver Metallic, Platinum Gray Metallic, Deep Black Pearl, and Dusk Blue Metallic. The SE and SEL have those same five options but also an additional three choices: Pure Gray, Cornflower Blue, and Kings Red Metallic.

Inside the cabin, you’ll find two rows of spacious seating suitable for adult and child passengers. The rear-row legroom in the Taos is just about as much as what you get in the Tiguan, one of VW’s larger crossovers. Two sets of LATCH connectors are located on the outboard rear seats for you to install child seating.

Behind the second row of seats, you’ll find 27.9 cubic feet of storage in front-wheel-drive models. That increases to 65.9 cubic feet if you fold down the rear row. All-wheel-drive models have slightly less cargo capacity because they use a more complex rear suspension system. You get 24.9 cubic feet behind the rear row of an all-wheel-drive Taos and about 60 cubic feet with the rear row down.

Engine and Performance

The same engine powers the new Taos throughout its lineup: a 158-horsepower four-cylinder turbocharged unit. If you stick with standard front-wheel drive, the engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Upgrading to all-wheel drive gets you a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

This powertrain achieves great fuel economy figures. In front-wheel drive, the 2023 Taos gets 28 mpg on city roads and 36 mpg on the highway. All-wheel-drive models still manage a respectable 25 mpg and 32 mpg, respectively.

Infotainment Technology

The 2023 Taos is equipped with a wide range of modern technology to keep you and your passengers entertained. In addition to the standard 6.5-inch screen and four-speaker stereo, you get a Wi-Fi hotspot to keep up to date with your emails or messages while you’re on the go. Other standard tech includes Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

If you feel like you require a larger screen or a higher-powered stereo, VW has you covered. Choose between a six-speaker or eight-speaker sound system. You can also add an 8-inch screen, a navigation system, and wireless device charging.

Safety Features

The new VW Taos offers a range of safety features that make your job behind the wheel a little easier. Adaptive cruise control adjusts your speed on the highway so you retain a safe distance from other motorists. The front collision warning and pedestrian detection systems alert you to potential hazards, while the automatic emergency braking feature brings your crossover to a swift stop.

For parking assistance, upgrade to front and rear parking sensors. There’s also a traffic sign recognition feature that warns you about speed limits and other important driving rules. Additional options include blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alert, and lane keep assist.

Many safety features are available as part of an upgrade package in the base S trim. Others only become available in the higher Taos trims. If you have any questions about the availability of various safety features, our experts at VW of Marion will be happy to help.
