Blue 2023 Volkswagen Taos Driving on Road

With its impressive performance and surprising affordability, the 2023 Volkswagen Taos is a worthy addition to the VW lineup. This subcompact SUV is a crossover hit, winning awards like the Parents 2022 Best Family Car. It’s made for daily commutes and cross-country road trips alike due to its incredible fuel economy and roomy yet compact size.


Performance and Capability

The 1.5L turbocharged engine is available in both front-wheel drive and VW’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive, offering just the right amount of power. 4MOTION provides four different drive modes: Snow Mode, Off-Road Mode, On-Road Mode, and Off-Road Custom. Although all-wheel drive sacrifices some fuel economy, the 28-31 combined MPG range is still high for a crossover. What makes it such an ideal choice for a family vehicle is the wide range of standard and available safety features that combine technology with convenience to give you peace of mind on your drive. A rear-view wide lens allows you to view blind spots, and the safety cage built into the body provides added security in the event of a collision. The Intelligent Crash Response System and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System are there for you when the worst happens, along with even more smart driver assist features with IQ.DRIVE.

Design and Features

A choice of three trims gives various interior, exterior, and design options, all at a reasonable price point. The S comes with two-tone CloudTex and cloth seating and a 6.5-inch touchscreen, and upgrading to the SEL gets you leather seats with 8-inch navigation touchscreen. The mid trim lands right in the middle with App-Connect Smartphone Integration, a wireless charging pad, and keyless access. While the amenities and features differ, every interior boasts a spacious 99.5 cubic feet of passenger space and up to 27.9 cubic feet behind the second row seating. Customize the look and add convenience with a number of accessories like Monster Mats with the Taos logo, a baby mirror, and bike holder attachment.
