What engine powers this SUV?
The first place that anyone wants to start when they’re checking out a new vehicle is to see what the engine lineup looks like. We can safely say that the standard engine with the Taos is as brilliant as you want it to be. This 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine can get you up to 184 pound-feet of torque and around 158 horsepower. Those are great numbers, and even the high-tech features that have been added boost everything even more. The fuel economy alone is enough of a reason to consider this SUV. We also want to note that front-wheel drive is standard, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission. However, if you opt for 4Motion all-wheel drive, you will then get a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. No matter what, you will be getting an SUV that can do it all.
What is IQ.DRIVE?
Safety is something that every vehicle needs to be taking seriously, especially when it’s something like the Taos that your entire family will be enjoying. We want to quickly go over IQ.DRIVE, which is a suite of driver assistance technology that you can add to every Taos model. This suite includes park distance control, forward collision warning with autonomous braking, an adaptive front-lighting system, active blind spot monitor, high beam control, lane keeping system, travel assist and emergency assist, and adaptive cruise control with a stop and go feature. We understand how important safety is, which is why we hope this suite of driver assist features is enough to satisfy your desire to feel at peace while driving.
What kind of style and features does the Taos have?
Now that we’ve shown you the standard engine and some of the best safety features available, it’s time to check out some of the technology and style. The first thing we want to note is that there is 28.1 cu. ft. of storage space behind the second-row of seats, and that can be upped to 66.3 cu. ft. when the second-row is lowered. You’ll also find a cockpit that comes with clean lines, a seamless flow into door inserts, two-tone seats as standard, and even the option between cloth and leather upholstery. You’ll also love the automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, heated and ventilated front seats, heated washer nozzles, and dual-zone climate control.
