See How the Volkswagen Taos Stacks Up Against the Competition.

The Volkswagen Taos has gathered the attention of many drivers in Pennsylvania, with more and more people flocking to the showroom floor at Ciocca Volkswagen of State College to take it for a spin. But, to ensure that this vehicle is the right fit for you, why not compare it to the competition. Let's see where the newest Volkswagen addition, the Volkswagen Taos, stands against the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Hyundai Kona.

The Volkswagen Taos vs. the Chevy Trailblazer

Right away, drivers will notice that the performance in the Chevy Trailblazer lacks compared to the Volkswagen Taos. The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a 1.3-liter In-Line three-cylinder engine that produces 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque compared to the quicker 1.5-liter In-Line 4 engine in the Volkswagen Taos that delivers 158 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.

The Volkswagen Taos also has plenty more technology features, such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment center, connected services including onboard Wi-Fi, and more. The Chevy Trailblazer contains some similar features but does not offer the connectivity drivers might need. These features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an infotainment system, and a USB port.

The Volkswagen Taos vs. the Hyundai Kona

When we look at the Volkswagen Taos compared to the Hyundai Kona, the Volkswagen Taos again comes out on top regarding performance. The 1.5-liter In-Line 4 engine that delivers 158 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque trump the Hyundai Kona's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque.

Drivers who prioritize safety will be more drawn to the Volkswagen Taos than the Hyundai Kona. The Volkswagen Taos has numerous driver aids, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, active blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, emergency assistance, a lane-keeping system, and more. The Hyundai Kona only has adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and rear automatic braking.
