2022 Volkswagen Taos vs 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan

Serving Troy, MI

The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan is the newest model to join the Volkswagen crossover SUV lineup. While the Taos and the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan are classified as compact crossovers, the Taos sits directly below the Tiguan in the trim line. Before you pick out your next crossover from our extensive inventory at Suburban Volkswagen of Troy, you need to get familiar with the complete driving experience that these models produce.


The 2022 Taos and the Tiguan have robust functionality from the 4MOTION all-wheel drive and an automatic transmission. Under the hood of the Taos, you will find a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 158 horsepower. The Tiguan, on the other hand, has a turbo engine that produces 184 horsepower. Uniquely, the performance of the Tiguan is enhanced by selectable driving modes.


The Taos is a two-row crossover with a small stature on the road, and it displays many of the Volkswagen-specific design elements that today’s drivers are familiar with. This includes three horizontal bars running across the rectangular grille, integrated headlights with a geometric design, and a crisp personality bar that runs linearly across the sides. The Tiguan front end and sides have comparable styling with a few modest differences for individuality. However, the Tiguan is a larger model with unique bumpers and minimal body molding.


The Tiguan SUV’s third row of seating is one of the most important differences between these two Volkswagen models. Both of these vehicles are available with an 8-inch touch display screen, Car-Net, assistive safety features, a digital cockpit display screen, leather material, an auto climate management system, and more.

Is the new 2022 Taos the crossover that lives up to all of your high expectations, or is the Tiguan a better option for you? Contact our sales reps at Suburban Volkswagen of Troy today to get more details on each of these models’ trims and make arrangements for an extensive showroom visit.
