Volkswagen of America announced a new web-based augmented reality technology experience that will spread across the world with the help of Amazon. Now that the season is upon us, Amazon will be delivering more packages than ever before and everyone can enjoy the virtual drive experience by using a QR code found on Amazon boxes. By simply opening the camera and scanning the QR code on any smartphone, users can go through a virtual drive in a 2022 Taos in a 3-D map. The QR code also unlocks four unique musical moods inspired by Volkswagen’s newest addition to the SUV family. Over one million boxes will be shipped by Amazon and Volkswagen hopes to allow as many users as possible to experience a taste of what being inside a 2022 Volkswagen Taos feels like.

“Driving and music have always been a perfect pairing,” said Kimberley Gardiner, senior vice president, Volkswagen brand marketing. “This innovative, virtual introduction to our all-new Taos gives potential buyers a unique, music-driven way to experience another moment of joy from this SUV.”

The 2022 Taos virtual experience allows potential buyers to go through a virtual introduction to the all new SUV. The 2022 Taos offers Volkswagen’s new turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine capable of producing 158 horsepower and 184lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel-drive versions will feature an eight-speed transmission while all-wheel-drive versions will have a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The 2022 Taos front-wheel and all-wheel drive trims will also carry different suspensions, front-wheel trims will use a torsion-beam set up, while all-wheel-drive trims use a more sophisticated multilink design. The SUV delivers Volkswagen’s signature driving dynamics and the latest technology available on the market. 

Inside the all-new 2022 Volkswagen Taos customers can enjoy a spacious cabin that can seat up to five, with available ventilated leather seats with contrast stitching. All 2022 Taos now come standard with Volkswagen’s Digital Cockpit that is a 12.3-inch fully customizable high-resolution display. Allowing drivers to drop the classic analog dash gauges for a digital version keeping all information in the driver’s line of sight with information like fuel usage, navigation updates, phone, and more.
