Is anyone here considering selling their Alltrack in order to get a Taos? I have an 18' Altrack SE that is a fantastic wagen, but it's just not working out for my needs. The issue with the Alltrack came after my Wife had an extensive back surgery a couple of years back. It's just too low to the ground for her to get in/out of without a bunch of effort (and some pain), and the seats don't have very good thigh support. I'm considering the Taos as a replacement and was wondering about what other Alltrack owners here think...

Welcome @dpsk

Never owned an Alltrack but with SUVs of all segments and crossovers making up a growing amount of the market, its best to just go that route.
Have you checked out any other VW SUVs in person yet? Like the Tiguan?

Yes, I have seen the Tiguan. Even though it's technically a compact SUV, it's just a bit too large for my needs. Perhaps the biggest size vehicle I'd like to get would be the new Bronco Sport (smaller than the Tiguan). However, they're like Unicorns and (IMO) overpriced. That's why I was thinking the Taos might be a good option for me.
PS: I test drove the Kia Seltos a couple of months back. It was decent, but a bit on the cheapo materials in the interior, and a rather noisy drivetrain as well.

Don't be surprised with the interior materials of the Taos. It will be similar to the finish of the Kia Seltos. First drive reviews by Mexican journalists says that there are a lot of hard plastics in the cabin. I am guessing that the quality of its plastics will be close to the current Jetta.

It's definitely crossed my mind. But the fact that VW stopeed producing the Alltrack makes me lean more towards the Taos. I'm not really interested in something pre-owned at the moment.

That is our plan assuming we like the Taos. We have a 2017 Alltrack SE with driver package I got in winter 2018 as a leftover. Huge discount, awesome lease deal, and better features than the 2018. We got the lease extended until August, but it’s out of warranty and worth $4000 more in trade than my residual, so it’s the car that keeps on giving.
