The new Volkswagen Taos, which is already being produced in Russia, will soon go on sale. Experts interviewed by the AUTOSTAT agency informed what place this compact crossover will occupy in the SUV market and who will become its main competitors. According to Denis Migal, General Director of the Fresh Auto network of car dealerships, the design of the new German brand is a redesigned version of the Skoda Karoq, with the same 1.6 MPI gasoline engine (110 hp) and a 1.4 TSI turbo four (150 hp).

Taos differs from its Czech classmate in length, but in design it is almost identical. However, Volkswagen concern has no goal of luring the audience away from one of its own models - Tiguan or Karoq. Starting prices for the new product are expected to be higher than for the Skoda Karoq. “In the Volkswagen model range, Taos is expected to take the third position in terms of sales, after the best-selling Polo brand and the Tiguan crossover, from which the new model will not lag far behind. At the same time, we can talk about the churn of Tiguan customers in favor of Taos: perhaps it will fluctuate in the range of 15 - 20%, because there is a need for a compact crossover among buyers...

However, the customer transition rates will not be catastrophic for the brand: Tiguan will have new special versions, thanks to which the outflow will be leveled, and Taos will capture its own contingent of consumers, which Volkswagen has never had, ”said Maxim Vasiliev, Sales Director of AVILON Volkswagen. In turn, Igor Osipov, head of the sales department of the Volkswagen Center Vnukovo, notes that the compact crossover market is now very competitive, but Taos has a large number of advantages: a wide selection of modern engines and gearboxes that provide the best dynamics in the class, coupled with high fuel efficiency or options that competitors cannot offer.

In this regard, the expert is sure that those customers who have previously chosen other models, such as KIA Seltos, Mazda CX-30, Nissan Qashqai, will look towards the new Taos.
