Check Out the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Prototype
The new 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport was brought to market very quickly by automotive standards to meet the growing mid-size SUV demand. The Atlas Cross Sport is a two-row 5-seat SUV which will come to dealers in early 2020. Let’s take a look at this newest Volkswagen.
The Atlas Cross Sport is a shorter version of the VW Atlas with 5.7 inches of length removed. It retains the same wheelbase as its Atlas cousin so this will be a plus for handling and ride comfort. The Atlas Cross Sport shares the same powertrain choices as its larger cousin. There is a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine developing 235 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque, and a 3.6 liter V-6 offering 276 HP and 266 lb-ft of torque. Both are connected to a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission. One change for 2020 is the opportunity for 4-cylinder engine owners to choose 4Motion all-wheel drive for the Atlas Cross Sport. This was previously only offered on V-6 variants.
Towing up to 5,000 pounds should not be an issue with the Atlas Cross Sport. In a test drive, a 3.000-pound trailer was towed across Death Valley in the summertime with no issues. The V-6 engine and transmission pair provided plenty of power and smooth shifting for the trip.
For owners looking for a slightly smaller version of the VW Atlas, the new 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport should fit the bill perfectly. Contact us at Island Volkswagen at 855-602-0808 and we will be happy to keep you advised of the arrival of the exciting new mid-size SUV Atlas Cross Sport.
