2023 Volkswagen Taos vs 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan

Serving Troy, MI

For auto shoppers in the Troy area who want the quality and solid engineering that Volkswagen is known for combined with the utility of an SUV, the 2023 model year carries several exciting options. The 2023 Taos is the first option in the lineup, and it has sporty character and excellent features. The Tiguan is a small SUV with an optional third row, which is equally appealing. Our sales associates at Suburban Volkswagen of Troy can support you as you check out these options in greater detail.


The 2023 Taos is a capable vehicle with confident capabilities across its three trims. All receive 158 horsepower from a four-cylinder, 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. If you prefer the front-wheel drive version, your Taos will have an eight-speed auto transmission. The all-wheel drive option has an upgraded rear suspension and an automatic, seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission. The 2023 Tiguan, on the other hand, has four trims with the same 184-horsepower, four-cylinder, turbo 2.0-liter engine. All trims also are equipped with an eight-speed transmission. The first three trims are designed with standard front-wheel or optional all-wheel drive. The top SEL R-Line features standard all-wheel drive and hill descent control.


The 2023 Taos and the Tiguan are comparably styled in several ways. For example, they have a wide grille perfectly integrated with LED headlights. They also display linear stripes accenting the side doors. The Taos has a flatter hood, a black grille with upper and lower chrome accents, and thick, dark molding. A longer roof, a tapered hood, horizontal bars on the grille, and a double LED light element in the headlights differentiate the Tiguan.


These Volkswagen crossovers provide everything you need for confidence and comfort behind the wheel. Some features they have in common are rear parking sensors, a panoramic sunroof, a dual-zone auto climate control system, a navigation system, heated front seats, leather material, adaptive cruise control, wireless internet connectivity, forward collision mitigation, and more. The 2023 Tiguan has a few other features in select trims. These are a Fender premium sound system, automated parking, a 360-degree surround-view camera, a heated steering wheel, adaptive headlights, and a few others.
