2022 Volkswagen Taos vs 2022 Volkswagen Atlas

Serving Milwaukee, WI

With several SUVs available in the 2022 Volkswagen lineup, you will undoubtedly be impressed by the exciting possibilities. The lineup starts with the 2022 Taos, a subcompact crossover with a bold personality and excellent capabilities. At the top of the lineup, you will find the Atlas. The Atlas is a midsize SUV with a well-appointed, spacious cabin accommodating three rows of seats. Our associates at Volkswagen of Milwaukee North are ready to help you uncover the many other differences between the Taos and the Atlas.


The 2022 Volkswagen Taos is a new addition to the lineup this year. It is offered in three trims, and all of these options have the same performance capabilities. They carry a turbo 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that puts you in control of 158 horsepower. If you opt for eight-speed auto transmission, your Taos will have front-wheel drive. The dual-clutch, seven-speed auto transmission comes with all-wheel drive. The Volkswagen Atlas is offered with six trim levels. The lower three options are equipped with a turbo 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, 235-horsepower engine. You can choose between front-wheel and all-wheel drive with this powertrain. A V6, 3.6-liter engine that produces 276 horsepower is offered in the top trim levels. All-wheel drive is standard.


The Taos has a spirited personality with a flat hood and a rounded nose. The black grille arches into the prominent LED headlights, and this grille is directly integrated with a molded, black bumper. The crossover’s personality is further defined by triangular air vents below the headlights and a pair of pinstripe accents that stream horizontally across the sides. The Atlas has similar side accents, and the sides are also dressed up with thick molding on the lower body. The grille displays three horizontal bars that run into the two-part, rectangular headlights. The Atlas has a flat hood and a rounded nose like the Taos.


The Taos is well-equipped throughout its trim levels. Its equipment includes a navigation system, roof rails, a dual-zone auto climate control system, leather seats, ambient lighting, rear parking sensors, wireless smart device integration, wireless smartphone charging, and more. The Atlas includes many of these features. It also adds rear window sunshades, a wireless hotspot, USB ports across all three rows, a three-zone climate management system, and other equipment.
