The table above displays the maximum estimated fuel economy ranges for the four gas-powered 2021 Volkswagen SUVs. As the smallest current model, the 2021 VW Tiguan will provide an efficient estimated 29 highway MPG. It ranks higher than both the 2021 VW Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport models, though they offer more performance and towing options. While the 2022 Volkswagen Taos will be arriving in 2021, official fuel economy estimates are not yet available. However, its 1.5-liter engine has several technological enhancements to offer strong fuel efficiency numbers. All four models have an all-wheel drive option, which minimally affects each model’s end figures.
