2023 Volkswagen Taos vs 2023 Volkswagen Tiguan

Serving Milwaukee, WI

In searching for a smaller crossover SUV packed with style and features, the Volkswagen lineup holds several excellent possibilities for you to consider. The first crossover SUV in the 2023 Volkswagen line is the sporty Taos. The Tiguan, a small crossover with a third row of seating, follows it. We always focus on customer satisfaction at Volkswagen of Milwaukee North, so you can rely on our sales agents to help you explore our models in detail and to support your next vehicle selection.


Three trims are available for the 2023 Volkswagen Taos, and all have the same powertrain. This is a 158-horsepower, turbo, 1.5-liter, four-cylinder gas engine. Front-wheel drive is available with an auto eight-speed transmission, or you can choose all-wheel drive with an enhanced suspension system and a dual-clutch, auto seven-speed transmission. In comparison, the 2023 Tiguan has a single engine for its four trims. This turbo 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, 184-horsepower powertrain features an eight-speed automatic transmission. Most trims are offered with front-wheel or all-wheel drive. However, the SEL R-Line trim is exclusively available with all-wheel drive and hill descent control.


The Taos and Tiguan share some aspects of the Volkswagen brand’s beautiful design language. Both have an extended grille that connects seamlessly with their headlights, and they also have pinstripes flowing across the side doors. The 2023 Taos, however, has a black grille featuring chrome accents. It also shows off a flatter hood and thick body molding. In comparison, the 2023 Tiguan has a different profile with a more extended roof and a stronger descent through the hood. Its grille is differentiated by horizontal bars with a chrome finish. In addition, the headlights are unique, with a pair of curved LED ribbons.


The appeal of the 2023 Taos and the 2023 Tiguan expands with a look at their many shared technologies and features. With some of their trims, you could find shared features like forward collision mitigation, wireless internet connectivity, adaptive cruise control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a navigation system, a two-zone climate control system, a panoramic sunroof, rear parking sensors, and others. Suppose you prefer to drive the 2023 Tiguan. Your crossover SUV may also have adaptive headlights, a heated steering wheel, a 360-degree surround-view camera, automated parking, and a Fender premium audio system.
