2022 Volkswagen Taos Prototype Shown, SUV Gets New 1.5L Turbo
2022 Volkswagen Taos

Volkswagen's new small SUV, to be revealed October 13, will have a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four with 158 horsepower


Volkswagen does things a funky arrangement and is releasing some specs for the new Taos SUV before its official debut. The new compact SUV will not be revealed for a few more weeks, but we now know about its powertrain and dimensions, confirming that it will be a secondary crossover that will provide a hatch under the compact Tiguan


The standard engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four with 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Codenamed EA211, it's a modified version of the 1.4-liter unit found in the Jetta but has an extra 11 horsepower and 0.1 liter of displacement. Front-wheel-drive models have an eight-speed automatic, while the optional all-wheel-drive system brings on a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission


Specifications of the new Volkswagen Taos


At 174.2 inches long, the Taos is significantly smaller than the Tiguan and measures up against rivals such as the Subaru Crosstrek and Jeep Compass. It does ride on a version of the VW Group's MQB architecture, like all other Volkswagen models. We expect it to have a two-row, five-seat layout like its closest competitors, leaving the Tiguan and Atlas as VW's three-row offerings


When we see it in full soon, we expect the Taos to look similar to the Tarek and Tharu crossovers that are sold in China, although it may possess some styling tweaks specific to the U.S. market. Volkswagen will reveal this new model October 13, and it's scheduled to go on sale in America next summer


The engine is pretty much the biggest known element of the car. It's a new 1.5 TSI motor, with four cylinders turbocharged to the tune of 158 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, which is an increase of 11 hp (and zero torque) over the 1.4T equipping the Jetta


While European VW and Audi models have been using 1.5-liter engines for a few years, this one has been tailored to the needs of an economy car sold in America. It's running the more efficient Miller combustion cycle, with high-pressure fuel injection, an 11.5:1 combustion ration and the first volume-produced variable-geometry turbocharger on an American Vdub





Officially poisedPrice and launch date of the Volkswagen Taos

 to debut this October, the Taos will enter showrooms as a 2022 model next year. Prices haven't been revealed, but it's safe to assume it will slot well below the $25,945 Tiguan
