The reveal happens on October 13th.
The Taos will slot below the Tiguan.
Taos is the name of a town in New Mexico.
All mainstream car brands are in the process of launching new or more SUVs and Volkswagen is no different – the market demands it. In the last year or so alone, VW’s introduced the Atlas Cross Sport, updated the Atlas, and will launch both the electric ID.4 and now, the Taos.
The all-new Volkswagen Taos is designed specifically for North America and, according to Volkswagen, will offer value, be plenty efficient, and be delivered with all the latest infotainment and safety technologies.
“We’re thrilled to announce the name for the newest member of the Volkswagen family,” said Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President for Product Marketing and Strategy, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “It was important to choose a name that really embodied the nature of the car and the town of Taos, New Mexico was a perfect fit. It’s a small city that offers big things—from outdoor adventure to arts and design and great cuisine.”
Perhaps more interesting to gearheads and VW fans, Taos was also home to John Muir, an engineer turned mechanic, and author of “How To Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures for the Compleat Idiot.” This book was first published back in 1969.
On October 13th, Volkswagen reveals the new Taos SUV to the world.
