DESIGN

4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive

To conquer whatever Canadian weather* throws at you, available 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive distributes power between the front and rear wheels as needed. Confidence comes easy in a Taos.

Appropriate all-season or winter-weather tires are required for driving in cold, snowy or icy weather conditions.

Volkswagen Digital Cockpit

It’s time you give your dash some flair.  With available customization at your fingertips, you can choose what essential information you want displayed, and configure it to your needs. From speed and travel time to route guidance, assistance systems, and elevation, make the digital cockpit uniquely yours*.

* Do not drive distracted. Drivers must pay full attention to the road and safe driving at all times.

Turbocharged Engine

The highly-advanced1.5L turbocharged engine in the Taos was designed to make compromise a thing of the past. You’ll get the fun drive you crave with its 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, as well as lightning fast response from the DSG dual-clutch gearbox – all while enjoying exceptional fuel economy.  We could go into the details on how we made this possible, but you don’t need to know what ‘Variable Turbine Geometry’ means to know it’s a blast to drive. Get behind the wheel and find out for yourself

Exterior

Clean styling and strong proportions make sure the all-new 2022 Taos looks ready for action. Standard LED headlights offer brilliant illumination and feature a distinct signature. Meanwhile, the sculpted side profile is punctuated by striking available 19” wheels. Whether you’re parked downtown or at the trailhead, Taos is sure to draw attention.

Interior

German design and high-quality materials make sure the inside of the Taos is all about the details. A standard two-tone interior design with contrast stitching and available ventilated leather seats bring a layer of sophistication and comfort. And with adjustable ambient lighting, generous passenger space and plenty of cargo volume, you may find yourself wondering when’s the right time to move in.

Panoramic Sunroof

The available panoramic sunroof stretches the length of the cabin and lets you easily slide or tilt it open with the touch of a button. Talk about a room with a view!

Illuminated Grille and LED Headlights

With standard LED lights on the Taos, leading any adventure just got a whole lot easier. And with an available illuminated grille and Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), your headlights can now move as you turn to give you the upper hand on any corner.

Fuel consumption ratings are estimates based on Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) fuel consumption criteria and testing methods for 2020 and 2021 model year vehicles and are provided for comparison purposes only. Please note that comparisons to seemingly similar vehicles pre-2015 model year will show discrepancies due to the difference in NRCan approved calculation methods for 2014 model year and older vehicles. Please refer to NRCan’s Fuel Consumption Guide 2020 and 2021 for estimated fuel consumption figures. Actual fuel consumption will vary based on driving conditions, driver habits and the vehicle’s condition, weight carried and additional equipment. Tires are supplied and warranted by their manufacturer. Most vehicles are sold equipped with four all-season tires. For vehicles sold equipped with summer performance tires, note that appropriate all-season or winter weather tires are required for driving during cold, snowy or icy weather conditions. Please remember that the use of winter tires may be mandatory in your province or territory. Airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all accident scenarios. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear seats, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age. The navigation system depends upon signals from the GPS network and is designed to provide you with suggested routes only. Discrepancies may occur between the mapping and the actual location due to changes in street names, construction or other road system changes which are beyond the control of Volkswagen Canada. Please rely on your individual judgment in determining whether or not to follow a suggested navigation route.
