When adventure calls you this summer, you’re going to need a car that will always be game to get you where you need to go — and the all-new 2022 Volkswagen Taos is perfect for this adventure.
Fresh to the Volkswagen vehicle line-up, the 2022 Taos is the smallest compact Sports Utility Volkswagen (SUVW) that’s designed to suit all of your adventures.
At first glance, Taos’ standout design makes a bold statement with its fresh exterior colours like Cornflower Blue, distinctive LED headlight signature, crisp sculpted side profile with squared-off wheel arches, and panoramic sunroof. Whether you’re parked downtown or at the trailhead, Taos is sure to draw attention.

Inside, it’s all about the details. Taos’ two-tone interior design and ventilated leather seats add a layer of sophistication and comfort. With generous passenger space for everyone in your group and plenty of cargo volume for all of your gear, it’s the perfect vehicle for your summertime adventures.
Taos’ 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive will enhance your sense of comfort and control when driving through the Canadian seasons. The SUVW’s power comes from the new 1.5-litre TSI engine, driven by advanced engineering to produce 158 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque – while at the same time delivering exceptional fuel economy.
Even more, Taos has got you covered for those long drives along the highway. The digital cockpit allows the driver to customize what essential information they want displayed, from speed and travel time to route guidance and assistance systems, and configure the dashboard to their needs.
With wireless charging for compatible devices, you’ll always be charged and ready to go. And because you need music for on the road, you can listen to your favourite jams at excellent quality with the built-in BeatsAudio® system.
Taos’ Safety features include Front Assist with Autonomous Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Assist, and Park Distance Control — giving you peace of mind when driving on B.C.’s highways — such as the Sea-to-Sky Highway.

Starting in Vancouver and winding through to Whistler and Pemberton, the Highway 99 route stretches out over 163 km in distance. Along the drive, which can be covered in 1 to 3 days, you will come across so many stops with incredible experiences, such as:
- The Capilano Suspension Bridge, which swings 450 ft above ground, and the Grouse Grind trail (as known as Mother Nature’s Stairmaster) at Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver.
- Porteau Cove Provincial Park on the eastern shore of Howe Sound, which is a popular spot for scuba diving and relaxing on the rocky shores.
- The Sea-to-Sky Gondola, where you can catch a ride to the top and enjoy the sweeping views of Howe Sound from the viewing platforms and suspension bridge.
- Squamish, the outdoor recreation capital of B.C., with over 600 mountain biking trails that weave through old-growth forests and the third-highest waterfall in Canada at Shannon Falls.
- Garibaldi Provincial Park, for a hike along one of the many trailheads that will take you through crystal-clear lakes, mountain vistas and alpine wildflowers.
- Whistler, the four-season resort where you hike the trails, kayak on the lakes, experience B.C.’s rich Indigenous history through the art and culture museums, and shop and dine at the Village.
- Pemberton, the picturesque valley known as B.C.’s horse country, with more horses per capita than any other area in the province, and an excellent destination for horseback riding through the meadows.
