Learn More About the New VW Taos

Engine Performance

The Volkswagen Taos gets its power from a 1.5L four-cylinder turbocharged engine that puts out 158 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. This is plenty of power to get you down San Vicente Boulevard with no issues.

If you like to tow your RV for summer adventures, the VW Taos can tow up to 5,300 pounds.


Exterior Design and Features

The VW Taos has a bold and sculpted look for the exterior. You are sure to turn heads driving this vehicle through Santa Monica. The available illuminated light bar on the grille combines with the LED headlights to add more visibility when driving through Santa Monica late at night. The new squared arches on the wheels give the VW Taos a rugged look.

You are sure to turn heads while driving to any of the shops and restaurants on Wilshire Boulevard. The Volkswagen Taos comes with a couple of customization options to make sure you are really getting a vehicle that can match your personality. There are five exterior body color options for you to choose from. These five colors include:

  • Dusk Blue Metallic
  • Deep Black Pearl
  • Pure White
  • Pyrite Silver Metallic
  • Platinum Gray Metallic

Interior Space and Features


The inside is comfortable and roomy even though it is an extra-small SUV. The upholstery is soothing to the touch and sleek with leather stitching. The interior look is sleek and will have your friends jealous. 10-color ambient lighting will set the tone for those night drives.

Packing for a day on Santa Monica Beach is easy with the ample cargo space in the VW Taos. In the trunk, behind the second-row seats, there is 27.9 cubic feet of cargo space. However, if you have larger items, like blow-up rafts, the cargo space maxes out at 65.95 cubic feet with all of the seating configurations.

Shopping around the city is comfortable with the amount of passenger space. There is plenty of space for everyone to stretch out with 40.1 inches of legroom in the front room and 37.9 inches of legroom in the second row.

Modern Technology Features

The modern and fun features of this SUV keep our drivers in Santa Monica entertained as they drive to work or to Santa Monica Place for a little shopping. The available 8-inch touchscreen has plenty of apps on it and comes with smartphone compatibility. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allows you to access the music, apps, and contacts on your phone through the touchscreen. The touchscreen can also come with a navigation system that will help you find your destination and other places around it quickly. Add SiriusXM satellite radio and the 8-speaker audio system to simplify your tunes. Volkswagen Car-Net is also available so that you can access your vehicle through your phone.

With a sporty exterior and engaging turbocharged engine, the new Volkswagen Taos has a lot to offer drivers living around Torrance. We want to tell you all about the three competitively priced Taos trim levels available at Volkswagen Santa Monica.
