Before we look at the EPA-estimated MPG ratings, it’s a good idea to look at what’s under the hood of the latest five-seater, all-wheel-drive SUV from VW.

The Taos comes in three trims – S, SE, and SEL – and powering all three trims is a turbocharged 1.5L, 4-cylinder TSI® engine that delivers 158 horses and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is mated with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission and comes with a 4Motion® all-wheel-drive system with four available modes to suit different driving scenarios.

2022 Volkswagen Taos EPA Fuel Economy

Now let’s get back to the EPA numbers. Despite its powerful turbocharged engine, all-wheel-drive system, and a more-than-ample 99.5 cubic feet of total passenger volume, the 2022 Taos returns an impressive 28 mpg in the city and up to 36 mpg on the highway. Combine this with the 15.3-gallon fuel tank capacity and you can get around 428.4 miles of city driving on a full tank and over 550 miles on the highway. That’s enough to take you and your friends or family from Janesville to Chicago up to four times! Or in other words, from Janesville, WI to Cleveland, OH, and a little farther!
