The 2022 Volkswagen Taos pricing has been announced, starts at $24,190, goes on sale in June.
This subcompact model is the brand’s new entry-level crossover designed for the U.S. To some extent, this is a replacement for the VW Golf which is leaving America. Its rivals are the Subaru Crosstrek or the Jeep Compass.
