The Family Friendly Volkswagen Atlas
Volkswagen has a long history of creating fun and friendly vehicles. From the classic Volkswagen bus to the instantly identifiable beetle, Volkswagen has a knack for making vehicles that forge an impression.
The Volkswagen Atlas is another example of this principle in action. A three-row beast, the Atlas is the largest vehicle manufactured by Volkswagen. It features a standard 2.0-liter turbo-four engine or an available 3.6-liter V6 with all-wheel drive, which provides all of the get-up-and-go that you need to get the Atlas moving. Its multitude of seats, adjustable thanks to flipping fold-flat functionality, provides plenty of room for passengers and their gear alike.
In addition to power and utility, the most important features for a large 3-row, the Atlas also sports excellent handling. Relatively tight steering is paired with a superb suspension and ride height. The Atlas is not an off-road vehicle, but it can handle enough bumps and rough terrain to go off the beaten path in small doses.
Aside from its driving capabilities, the Volkswagen Atlas sports a superior cabin. The Volkswagen Digital Cockpit is standard on most models and connects to a variety of available amenities, including automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and heated side mirrors. Trizone climate control and a panoramic roof are also available, adding a whole new level of comfort to an already excellent cabin.
The tech inside the Atlas isn’t limited to luxury features alone, of course. Volkswagen has equipped the Atlas with a wide range of driver-assistance and safety features, including front assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear traffic alert. These features are standard on all models and several more are available at higher trims.
All in all, the Atlas is what we’ve come to expect from Volkswagen. A finely-tuned piece of engineering with a memorable charm that keeps us wanting to see what they will come up with next.
