2022 VW Taos vs. 2021 Subaru Crosstrek

Functional, competitively priced, and fun to drive. The 2022 Volkswagen Taos checks all three of those criteria to create a subcompact SUV that Denver Metro drivers will adore. Slotting underneath the Tiguan in terms of size and price, the Taos introduces a body style that is perfect for customers who seek more interior space than a typical sedan while not wanting the sheer size of a standard SUV. Compared to other sportier crossovers and compact SUVs like the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek, superior German engineering shines with the 2022 Taos.

Performance

A new 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers every 2022 VW Taos trim level. With 158 horsepower at the driver’s command, zipping around Denver will be an enjoyable experience. Standard FWD models of the Taos come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, while optional AWD models come with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Both deliver seamless acceleration that maximizes the capabilities of the engine. Base level 2021 Subaru Crosstrek models come with a 2.0L SUBARU BOXER® four-cylinder engine under the hood. The engine is weaker than the one in the Taos, reaching only 152 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission is the standard for the base Crosstrek. All Crosstrek models are equipped with the Subaru Symmetrical AWD system as the standard drivetrain. While both vehicles share an EPA-estimated 28 MPG city fuel economy, FWD versions of the Taos beat out the Crosstrek on the highway. These Taos models get 36 MPG highway estimates while the Crosstrek only reaches 33 MPG.

Interior Features

Despite being a subcompact SUV, the 2022 VW Taos still provides plenty of interior space for cargo and passengers alike. With the rear seats folded down, drivers get access to 65.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Comparatively, the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek only has 55.3 cubic feet of cargo space with its rear seats folded down. Even with the seats upright, the Taos beats the Crosstrek with 27.9 cubic feet in the Volkswagen compared to 20.8 cubic feet in the Subaru. Every 2022 Taos model comes with an integrated Wi-Fi® hotspot for reliable connectivity to the Internet wherever the subcompact SUV goes. Base trim Subaru Crosstrek models do not have a Wi-Fi® hotspot included. A 6.5-inch touchscreen comes standard in both the Taos and the Crosstrek, with 8-inch screens available as upgrades in both vehicles as well. Bluetooth® connectivity helps ensure both additional streaming audio capability and safe hands-free operation of compatible smartphones.

Safety Features

A whole host of standard modern safety features help make the 2022 Taos and the 2021 Crosstrek great options for today’s Denver Metro driver. With Electronic Stability Control and Anti-Slip Regulation systems standard, the 2022 Taos actively works with the driver to keep them in command of the vehicle. The Crosstrek does the same functions with its Vehicle Dynamics Control system. Both vehicles also come with Brake Assist to enhance stopping performance when roads get slippery or a more sudden stop is required. The Taos goes one step further with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution technology.
