2022 Volkswagen Taos vs 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

In 2022, the Volkswagen SUV lineup grows more appealing than ever thanks to the introduction of the Taos. The Taos is a two-row crossover SUV that falls into the subcompact segment. It sits directly below the Volkswagen Tiguan, which is a three-row crossover SUV. As you decide which of these models could be an excellent fit for you, you need to understand how these two options differ in critical areas. After learning more about the Taos and the Tiguan, which model will you select as your next SUV?


The 2022 Taos is available in your choice of three trim levels, and all trims have the same capabilities. The one engine option available is a turbo 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower. It is connected to front-wheel drive with an eight-speed transmission. An alternative that is offered for all trim levels is all-wheel drive with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. In comparison, the larger Tiguan has a turbocharged four-cylinder, 184-horsepower engine connected to an eight-speed auto transmission.


As close siblings, the 2022 Taos and the Tiguan have striking similarities, but they are easy to differentiate on the road. The Taos is a smaller vehicle with a gentle grade down, a flat hood, and a slightly rounded roof. The grille has black mesh, and it is accented by a pair of chrome bars that integrate with rectangular LED headlights. The Tiguan, on the other hand, is a larger model with stronger curvature through the profile. Like the Taos, it has a pinstripe accent that runs linearly through the sides. The grille has four horizontal bars that taper into pointed headlights.


These are both well-appointed vehicles that are available with progressively more advanced features across their interiors. These include a dual-zone climate management system, leather material, rear parking sensors, a navigation system, ambient interior lighting, wireless smartphone charging, remote engine start, etc. The Tiguan is a more sophisticated model with a higher price tag so that you will notice a few additional features on it on a trim-by-trim basis.
