VW Taos vs. Chevy Trailblazer: Which CUV Is Right for You?

November 19th, 2021 by

Compact SUVs are a popular option today, providing drivers the perfect balance of SUV ruggedness and power with cozy cabins and impressive fuel efficiency. As you seek the best make and model in this category, two options that are sure to rise to the top are the Volkswagen Taos and the Chevrolet Trailblazer.


VW Taos Overview


Let’s take a look at each option, beginning with the VW Taos. Here are a few of this new CUV’s most impressive stats and features:


  •   The Taos offers a combined fuel efficiency rating of 31 mpg, very competitive for vehicles in this category.
  •   The sharp handling and smooth ride quality make the Taos a real pleasure to drive. 4MOTION® all-wheel drive always keeps the driver firmly in control, too, no matter the conditions.
  •   The interior is comfy, surprisingly spacious, and very easy to get into or out of. You get a minimum of 65.9 cu. ft. of cargo capacity in the Taos with the rear seats folded down.
  •   Newer iterations of the Taos come with standard-setting technologies and infotainment features, including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ functionality.


Chevy Trailblazer Overview


Next, let’s take a look at the Chevy Trailblazer. Here are a few of this CUV’s most notable selling points.


  •   The combined fuel efficiency rating is 28 mpg, a bit lower than what you’d get with the Taos.
  •   Higher trim levels will provide you with some decent off-roading features.
  •   Both the seating and the cargo space are fairly roomy for a compact SUV. Maximum interior cargo space is 54.4 cu. ft.
  •   There are some decent tech features available, including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.


Ultimately, both vehicles are good, reliable options for anyone seeking a compact SUV. All else being equal, we would consider the VW Taos to be superior in its performance, comfort, fuel efficiency, and overall value.
