The 2023 version of the VW Taos near Rio Rancho, NM hasn’t changed significantly from what you loved about the 2022 model. It still seats five passengers and is small but mighty, with a 158 horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that puts out peppy performance. You can use Sport mode to add to the fun, and there’s even a launch control feature to shoot off the line like a sports car! It also lets you choose from a front-wheel drive with an 8-speed automatic transmission configuration or the VW 4Motion all-wheel drive setup with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Taos is a compact, responsive SUV that can get you in and out of tight spaces quickly!
The spunky little Taos also comes in the same three trim levels as before: the S, SE, and SEL, but with some updated features. The base S trim has more standard features than ever, and the middle and top-tier trims have also been upgraded. Keep reading to learn more.
Being compact, the Taos offers award-winning fuel-efficient performance for an SUV. This includes an EPA-estimated 28/36/31 MPG for city/highway/combined for the FWD version and 25/32/28 MPG for city/highway/combined for the heavier AWD edition.
The driver and front passenger have plenty of room to stretch their legs, with 40.1 inches of legroom, while backseat passengers have 37.9 inches. You’ll also have lots of room to haul your gear with 27.9 cubic feet behind the second row and 65.9 cubes with those seats folded down.
Your Taos will come with the excellent VW Digital Cockpit no matter which trim you choose. This integrated display gives you easy access to the vehicle’s performance information and includes navigation tools. And with the S trim, you’ll get CloudTex (a water-repellent upholstery) and cloth seating surfaces, a leatherette-wrapped steering wheel, and LED headlights. Blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, and a rearview camera system are a few of the driver-assist features included, while adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist are available.
If you select the Taos SE, you’ll get the features of the S model, plus 18-inch alloy wheels and the convenient additions of wireless device charging, remote engine start, and more.
When you treat yourself to the SEL trim, you’ll add top-tier amenities to the SE trim. Leather upholstery, stylish 19-inch wheels, the VW Digital Cockpit Pro, a panoramic sunroof, a Beats Premium Audio system, parking distance control, and more will be yours.
