Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Taos than in the Jeep Renegade, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Renegade offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Taos, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Taos, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Renegade, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Renegade will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Taos. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Renegade is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Taos.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Renegade is much wider than the Volkswagen Taos, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jeep Renegade, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Taos.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Renegade doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Taos.

Handling
The Jeep Renegade has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Taos, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Jeep Renegade has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Taos.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Renegade and the Volkswagen Taos. The Jeep Renegade has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Taos.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Renegade is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Taos.
