The press service of the brand shared the relevant data.

Volkswagen has confirmed data that the Taos crossover, intended for the North American market, will be equipped with a new 1.5-liter turbo engine with 158 hp. According to the manufacturer, such a power unit is more modern and more economical than its predecessor, which was on Jetta sedans.

Externally, the crossover will be similar to the Volkswagen Atlas and Seat Ateca models. In the model range of the brand, the novelty will take place one step below the Tiguan and will become the smallest SUV. Interestingly, the length of the new Taos is 280 mm less than that of the Tiguan and 50 mm less than that of the Hyundai Tucson.

It is reported that in the US market, the new Volkswagen Taos will be sold with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. In the first case, the engine will be paired with an 8-speed “automatic”, and in the second – a 7-speed “robot” with a double clutch.
