We don’t live in a one-size-fits all world, and that’s why it’s great to have choices when it comes to your automobiles and even the different vehicles you can find within the same class. If you’re into SUVs but want something on the compact side, then the 2023 Volkswagen Taos in Duluth, MN, could be exactly what you’re looking for. First introduced as a 2022 model and serving as the entry into the Volkswagen crossover SUV lineup, the Taos is getting a refresh for 2023.
Three trim levels are available with the 2023 Taos: S, SE, and SEL. You’ll get to choose the one that best fits your needs, and with a starting MSRP of $24,155, it’s very budget friendly, too. Front-wheel drive is standard, but 4Motion® all-wheel drive is available for even better driving on roads less traveled. Though it may be a compact SUV, it’s still quite spacious, offering 99.5 cubic feet of passenger space and as much as 65.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity.
Performance & Capability
Every 2023 VW Taos is equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive models earn up to an EPA-estimated 28 city and 36 highway miles per gallon, while the 4Motion all-wheel-drive models can reach 25 city and 32 highway miles per gallon. Speaking of 4Motion, available 4Motion with Active Control offers four distinct driving modes that can be used depending on conditions and where you’re driving: Snow Mode, On-Road Mode, Off-Road Mode, and Off-Road Custom Mode.
Connectivity & Technology
Climbing aboard the 2023 Taos takes you to a new level of driver experience. The traditional instrument panel is gone in favor of a unique digital display which puts vital info directly in front of you in high resolution. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® let you make use of some of your favorite apps behind the wheel, and your podcasts and playlists will sound clearer than ever with the available BeatsAudio® sound system. Available wireless phone charging and available remote start round out some of the high-tech Taos features that you may wonder how you ever lived without.
