Let’s Talk Taos: Why the Volkswagen Taos is Turning Heads
Breaking Down This Stunning New Subcompact SUV
If it’s one thing that we’ve learned from being in the automobile game so long it’s that not all SUVs are created equal.
Having the perfect SUV means having a ton of cargo room and interior passenger space, advanced safety and convenience features, fantastic fuel economy, and design aesthetics that get heads to turn in traffic. Finding the perfect SUV comes down to what you and your family require of it. For instance, if you roll with a large crew that likes to go on cross country adventures, then the seven-seater Atlas is likely the best choice for you.
However, some people want all the perks of an SUV without all the bulk that typically comes with them. They want something quick and nimble like a sedan but with all the design hallmarks of an SUV. In that case, the all new 2022 Volkswagen Taos will hit all the right notes for you subcompact lovers out there. It’s small but mighty…and completely capable of tackling any winter Lee’s Summit can throw at it.
Let’s get to know the 2022 Volkswagen Taos.
The 2022 Volkswagen Taos – All the SUV You Need in Smaller Packaging
When Volkswagen engineers and designers were originally building out the Volkswagen Taos, it was with the intention of finding that happy medium between size, storage, and fuel economy. After all, just because an SUV is technically a subcompact doesn’t mean it should skimp on space or performance.
The VW Taos offers a very roomy 96.7 cubic ft. of passenger volume (with sunroof), which should comfortably seat up to five passengers. It also has 65.9 cubic ft. of cargo room with the rear seats folded down, making even the largest of grocery trips a breeze. The VW Taos does great in the fuel department as well, giving drivers 28 mpg in the city and 36 on the highway. It’s great for daily commutes and cross-country travel. This subcompact SUV is perfect for our Kansas City clientele.
Finally, there’s the all-important issue of price, and we’re happy to say that the VW Taos is our most affordable SUV in our entire line-up. The 2022 Volkswagen Taos has a starting MSRP of $22,995, making this the perfect SUV for even the most frugal of car-shoppers.
The Volkswagen Taos – Easy to Obtain and Easy to Maintain
The 2022 VW Taos is affordable, packs plenty of storage space, and comes equipped with the latest in safety and convenience features, just as you’d expect out of a brand-new VW. It’s got every bell and whistle from Apple CarPlay/Android Auto to blind spot monitoring and remote keyless entry. SUVs don’t get any more driver-friendly than the VW Taos, and a big part of that is because it’s so easy to maintain.
Ah yes, the dreaded maintenance conversation. A great MSRP is one thing, but drivers always have those upkeep costs in the back of their minds. Fortunately, the VW Taos is one of the most affordable subcompact SUVs to own from a maintenance perspective.
According to the analysis of mid-size SUVs and crossovers performed by Vincentric, LLC using 2021 competitive vehicles, the 2022 Volkswagen Taos is estimated to cost drivers less in routine
maintenance compared to the likes of the Honda Pilot, CR-V, Passport, and HR-V.
It’s also worth noting that Volkswagen vehicles are typically able to go for longer periods of time between service check-ups. Volkswagen service centers are able to recommend 10,000 miles/1 year between oil changes due to the synthetic blend that VW offers. If you were to compare that to other manufacturers, they would likely recommend somewhere between 5,000 and 7,500 miles.
