The 2022 Volkswagen Taos 1.5t S is an all-new mid-compact SUV specifically designed for the American market as opposed, unlike a readily available vehicle for all other countries on the globe.
Though not the first all-American VW to be released. Before it was, previous models like the Jetta, Atlas, and Passat, were characteristically big and cheap. But, this has been the most successful and accepted model.
Turns out that the auto company had realized how American car buyers appreciate more sophistication than they had initially thought. The new 2022 Volkswagen Taos 1.5t S, represents a smart course correction, it’s not unnecessarily large like a Passat or Atlas but it still is big.
The new Taos is equipped to provide family-friendly backseat and cargo space while still being smaller on the outside than some compact SUVs. This enables it to go for a lower price, allows you to fit it in your garage, and is also great for fuel saving, and maneuverability.
Also, the 2022 Volkswagen Taos 1.5t S is more stylish both exterior and its interior, with the outward look leaning a bit into the outdoor adventure with a few rugged cues and functional raised roof rails.
This SUV scores high for functionality and value without looking unattractive or sleazy.
