Impact of the New 2022 Volkswagen Taos in the Market of Compact Crossover SUV

The market of compact crossover SUVs is already flush and full. But there are reasons why the leading auto brands are still into making newer models of this category of vehicles. It is all to offer the buyers a yet more complete ride experience, where large benefits are compressed into the small stature of these compact crossovers. The 2022 Volkswagen Taos can prove this point at every level.

 2022 Taos being a new crossover model from Volkswagen makes it clear that there is still much scope left for the crossover model makers to improve the ride experience. The sales team of the Seaside Volkswagen dealership explained to us how the brand did it all with so much expertise.

The Fresh Look

The year 2022 brought a fresh start for Volkswagen lovers, since they now have a new model Taos to consider buying, if they were waiting for it so far. Not only it has in introduced a fresh name in the crossover market, but has brought a fresh design to the buyers who are tired of looking at the same hackneyed style of countless crossover models. Sculpted on a modern aerodynamic design, the 2022 Volkswagen Taos looks different from its neighboring models because of the prominent hood and square wheel arches that mount easily on the 17-inch wheels. Upfront, the unique combination of three-bar grille and LED headlights make a grand entry, wherever you drive down with the new 2022 Volkswagen Taos.

What more? The 2022 Volkswagen Taos gives you a pleasant surprise, with five belted seats which you might not have guessed seeing its apparently small body structure.  But there is still more to explore. The new 2022 VW Taos does not ask you to compromise on your packing since it leaves 28.1 cubic feet behind the rear seat exclusively for your cargo items that gave a tough challenge to many of its closest rivals, when it comes to their utility score of 31 mpg in combined drive, 28 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.

Behind the Wheels Experience

We drove the 2022 Volkswagen Taos for the first time at the Volkswagen dealer Salinas only to return with an ardent urge to drive it again. The 2022 Volkswagen Taos proved to be a crossover that has everything in place to ensure a consistently smooth ride, while returning an appreciable mileage score.

To achieve this, the 2022 Volkswagen Taos makes use of a 1.5-liter turbo-4 engine that throws out 158-horsepower when mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission to carry the engine power to the front wheels. But do not get disheartened to know this. Volkswagen does allow driving its new Taos model with all four wheels, and enjoying the subtle and smooth shifting of gears through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.  Drive the 2022 Taos in S mode, and get the most engaging and thrilling highway drives. All this undoubtedly took the market of the compact crossovers by storm, and the ascending sales record of the 2022 Volkswagen Taos says it all.
