On the Road Again! The 2022 VW Taos from Autobahn Fort Worth
I have a recurring experience every time I embark on another amazing test drive with Fort Worth Autobahn. It goes like this:
I pull out of the dealership with Willie singing “On the Road Again” in my head because I cannot wait to get on the road again in another car that I know I’ll fall in love with. Well, friends, let me introduce you to the 2022 Volkswagen Taos! I promise you’ll want to take to the highways and byways in this peppy compact SUV!
Volkswagen says the name “Taos” refers to the rugged and picturesque town in New Mexico, and the name is absolutely fitting because of its sporty handling and artistic exterior. From behind the wheel, the Taos proves it’s worthy of a spot on the shopping list of anyone searching for a small, easy-to-maneuver, and affordable SUV. If you routinely need to negotiate through tight spaces or squeeze into small parking spots, go test drive this petite VW SUV. I discovered the Taos is perfect for crowded Fort Worth streets because I could make quick U-turns thanks to its tiny turning radius.
While the Taos feels small when you’re spinning the steering wheel, it certainly doesn’t feel cramped in the cabin. There was plenty of legroom in the back seat, and my tall daughter and her two friends agreed that it was very comfortable as we carpooled to school. Cargo space also will not disappoint. Yes, you can do your weekly Costco or Sam’s Club visit and can fit everything in just fine.
The Taos was impressive from the moment I sat inside. All Taos models come standard with an LCD instrument cluster that can be customized to display anything from the song that’s playing to turn-by-turn directions using either the in-car navigation system or your phone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
All my techno-nerd friends MUST check out the Volkswagen Car-Net app! Just a few perks of the app include a map to show you your last parked location if you forget where you parked (not that I would EVER need that! [cough]) or to show where the car is when someone else is driving. The app also has speed alerts, curfew alerts, and boundary alerts, as well as many other awesome notifications. In addition to the app, all the necessary safety bells and whistles come standard to keep you and your family at ease on your daily journey to and from Wherever, USA.
I truly enjoyed driving this little SUV, and I absolutely encourage you to take it for a test drive. But, as always, the absolute best thing about all my Fort Worth Autobahn experiences is the people who work there. After a year and a half of working with this amazing group of car dealers, I consider them friends. They are knowledgeable, kind, and eager to make their clients’ car dreams come true.
Gratitude, once again, to Fort Worth Autobahn for a fantastic driving experience. And…
“I just can’t wait to get on the road again!”
