Volkswagen of America, Inc. has named its new compact SUV today—the Volkswagen Taos. The Taos model was designed specifically for North American, according to Volkswagen.

The Volkswagen Taos will slot under the Tiguan, and is the second proof point of Volkswagen’s doubling-up SUV strategy following the launch of Atlas Cross Sport earlier this year, the automaker said.

The official reveal will take place next month, on Oct. 13, 2020.

“It was important to choose a name that really embodied the nature of the car and the town of Taos, New Mexico was a perfect fit,” said Hein Schafer, senior vice president for Product Marketing and Strategy, Volkswagen of America, Inc.
