The team at McDonald Volkswagen wants to give drivers a head start in their research, so we’ve compiled resources that will fully explain everything the Volkswagen Taos can do for you and your family.

Volkswagen Taos

Performance: A Mode for Every Occasion

First, let’s talk performance. The VW Taos uses a 158-horsepower turbocharged engine to provide all the work behind its pedals. Equipped with 4MOTION® all-wheel drive, the model puts its power to good use in all four wheels for excellent traction and stability.

Not every drive is the same. That’s why drivers can choose from four different drive modes depending on current road conditions:

  • Snow Mode
  • On-Road Mode
  • Off-Road Mode
  • Off-Road Custom Mode

Efficiency is everything and with the VW Taos, you’ll get everything. The EPA-estimated 28 city/36 hwy MPG means this vehicle can handle the stop-and-go of city errands as well as a demanding long-distance commute.*

Interior: Roomy Cabin

This 5-seater SUV really shows effort in all the right spaces. Check out the dimensions you’ll find within its roomy interior. Without its sunroof, the Volkswagen Taos provides 40.1 inches of front legroom and 37.9 inches of legroom for rear-seat passengers.

If you want room to stretch out during long trips, front passengers are given 56.6 inches of shoulder room, while the rear-seat riders receive 55.2 inches. No seat is superior thanks to the ample room given by the VW Taos.

Your passengers are also welcome to bring along extra baggage thanks to the 65.9 cubic feet dedicated to carrying cargo, such as groceries, luggage, work equipment, and more. Simply access by utilizing the 60/40-split folding rear seats to expand your space to your liking.

Trim Levels

Three trim levels are offered by the VW Taos: S, SE, and SEL. Each trim comes with different technologies, that– depending on what you’re looking for–can bring a lot more leisure to your ride.

The standard S level trim lays down the foundation for this model with features like App-Connect, Volkswagen Car-Net®, Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, and a Composition Color touchscreen sound system with 6.5-inch color display, and AM/FM radio .

Higher trim levels include these features plus more, like remote start, SiriusXM® with 360L, and a host of safety technologies, like Pedestrian Monitoring, Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Traffic Alert.

The higher trims also enhance some of the standard features, such as including a larger 8-inch Composition Color media touchscreen and App-Connect with wireless connectivity.
