The Atlas is a powerful, spacious, and comfortable SUV well-worthy of the universal acclaim it’s received upon its arrival. This mid-size three-row Atlas is, so far, the German carmaker’s best crossover marketed in the U.S. See what versions you can lease from your local lease dealer.
Can We Expect Major Changes To The Atlas In 2020?
Changes In Size
In order to be able to offer as much space as it does, Volkswagen cut back on the interior craftsmanship. This is a mid-size SUV but it has three rows. It’s one of the most versatile vehicles with plenty of luggage space and a roomy third row. Furthermore, Volkswagen has developed a version called the Atlas Cross Sport which has only two rows. This reduces the internal dimensions but has a sleeker and sportier look. This family-friendly model sits upon aluminum alloy wheels ranging from 17-21 inches and is just more compact.
What Safety Features Will We Have
It now includes advanced safety features like blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts and the automatic emergency braking are standard from the start. Volkswagen’s Car-Net connectivity system keeps you connected to maps, music, and apps on your dashboard and is an agreeable way to keep you ahead of the game. The Atlas still offers good value.
What Spec Can We Expect
Although the entry-level models still offer a 2.0L turbo-four engine which delivers 235 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The V6 option has a 3.6L engine and cranks out 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of rotational force. Both powertrains deliver their power via a modern 8-speed gearbox. While the V6 offers a choice between front and all-wheel drive, the turbo-four can only be configured as a front-wheel drive. Most models will be fitted with the V6.
There are many models with the Atlas name and they come with additional trim levels such as trim adding parking sensors and even a power liftgate.
