2022 Volkswagen Taos

Volkswagen has revealed the new Taos 2022, the brand's smallest SUV to date. Through a notch down the Tiguan in the VW lineup, you'll take the likes of Chevy Trailblazer, Kia Seltos, and Toyota CH-R in the crowded compact SUV space

Small SUVs made up nearly one-fourth of new-car sales in 2019, with 4 million of the vehicles rolling off of dealer lots. And Volkswagen, it seems, is intent on attacking the booming segment from every angle

VW launched the Tiguan back in 2007, and the SUV now ranks as the brand's best-selling vehicle. VW has sold more than 6 million Tiguans globally, building more than 900,000 of them in 2019 alone. With the Taos, VW's fifth new SUV in four years, the brand says it's setting its sights on buyers looking for something a bit smaller and more affordable

But the new 2022 Volkswagen Taos isn't actually all that different from the Tiguan — it's around nine inches shorter and slightly wider — so it doesn't add all that much to VW's SUV offerings. Other diminutive crossovers like the Subaru Crosstrek, Toyota CH-R, and Honda HR-V, on the other hand, do a lot more to differentiate themselves from larger SUVs in their brands' respective lineups

That said, Taos' sale is likely to be a good one and it could be a solid buy for Volkswagen fans who think Tiguan is just a huge smidge. Take a closer look at the new SUV below
