NEXT STAGE: New in 2021
VW's new 2022 Taos crossover will give the brand a second offering in the popular segment - a model that will be shorter and less expensive than the Tiguan. The Taos will be built in Puebla, Mexico, and is based on the same MQB modular global architecture as the Tiguan. As such it will share a number of the same components. The Taos will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine that produces 158 hp and 184 pound-feet of torque. It will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission in front-wheel-drive versions or a seven-speed automatic when equipped with available all-wheel-drive. It arrives at U.S. dealerships in summer 2021.
NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2024
It would be due for a freshening in 2024, based on Volkswagen’s traditional product cadence in the U.S.
