The Taos is a brand-new vehicle for the U.S. market and Volkswagen’s first subcompact SUV. It promises confident handling in a package that is 11 inches shorter than the brand’s next biggest SUV, the Tiguan. Edmunds predicts the Taos will appeal to you if you’ve got an active lifestyle and are looking for an SUV that has more refinement than many other models in this price range.
The Taos will compete with vehicles including the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Mazda CX-30 and Nissan Rogue Sport. Expect the 2022 Volkswagen Taos to arrive at dealerships in the summer of 2021 and will cost around $22,000 to start out.
