Despite the compactness of the body, the car has become one of the most advanced in the model range of the brand.

The American division of Volkswagen has officially unveiled the new Taos compact crossover. Photos of the novelty and details of its technical equipment became known on Wednesday, October 14th. From the outside, we note the interesting design of the radiator grille, in which the chrome strip is directed from the headlights to the brand emblem.

In the side part, we note the stamping at the bottom of the doors, as well as a massive body kit – sills and wheel arch extensions. There is a small spoiler on the rear of the tailgate. In general, the feed turned out to be voluminous, which does not at all give out a compact car in Taos. The interior of the car has received a premium performance – already in the starting configuration, Taos has two-tone seat upholstery, regardless of the material used.

In the maximum version, you can count on the leather interior. The headlights switch automatically by a sensor, there is keyless entry into the cabin, and the engine can be started remotely.

The driver’s seat got 8 positions at once. Note that the new Volkswagen has acquired a winter package, which includes heated steering wheel, windshield and washer nozzles. The front seats received not only heating, but also the possibility of ventilation. A special place was given to the modern multimedia system MIB3, to which you can connect wirelessly.

Under the hood is a 1.5-liter turbo engine capable of producing 158 hp. The engine works in tandem with an 8АКПП or a proprietary 7-band DSG robot. In some versions, you can count on an all-wheel drive system. The car will be sold in 3 trim levels called S, SE and SEL. Sales are expected to begin in the summer of 2021, at which point the official prices will be announced. According to preliminary data, the car will cost from $ 21 thousand.

Earlier, the German premium brand Audi talked about two new modifications of the large Q8 crossover. The car can be charged from the electric network, and the power reserve on one electricity will be almost 60 kilometers.
