In the realm of small to compact sport utilities, the Taos fits where the Tiguan used to. The Tiguan has grown and as a result, VW needed a new vehicle to fit the small slot that it used to be in. Enter the Taos, introduced last year.
The VW Taos is right-sized, well-designed, and a good drive. It has a large cargo area, good seating, and an affordable price point.
Several small changes to the 2022 Tiguan make it a lot more competitive with the contemporary options in the midsized SUV segment. With a three-row option, good performance from a turbocharged four, and a far nicer interior, the 2022 VW Tiguan is for sure a solid entry worth considering.
The 2022 Tiguan is a step up from previous model years, with a few styling changes on the outside and significant changes inside. The Tiguan is now a much more competitive midsized option thanks to that improved interior and the three rows of seating.
In this walkaround review, I look at the 2022 Atlas Cross Sport, the smaller, sportier version of the big Atlas SUV from Volkswagen. This one has a roomy interior, big cargo space, and a lot of nice things going for it. There are some downers, though, like the MPG rating (and real-world) and austere interior layout.
In this walkaround review, I look at the all-new 2022 Golf R, Volkswagen’s all-wheel drive hot hatch. Several things have changed for this new year, including more power under the hood and a larger back seat. The manual transmission is a nice little six-speed and definitely the way to go with this one.
Get a load of the awesome blue color on this Volkswagen. The Taos is a relatively new entry into VW’s lineup, taking the place that the Tiguan occupied before it became larger and less sporty. Here’s a (more or less) full walkaround including a pantomime as the wind overtakes the sound recording.

It’s quite possible that the refreshed 2021 VW Atlas is now the best vehicle in the three-row segment. It looks good, it’s ergonomic on several levels, it’s right-sized in both powertrain and interior, and it’s amazingly affordable. That’s a lot of boxes to check with just one vehicle. Nicely done, Veedub.
