About the Atlas

The Volkswagen SUV range has become quite extensive over the years, with the VW Atlas acting as the headline large SUV model in the lineup. The VW Atlas offers great amounts of space, sophisticated design, and very confident handling for an SUV of its class. What’s more, with a starting price of just over $35,000, it represents very good value in the high-quality SUV segment.

Where the VW Atlas really shines is as a more attractive alternative to a minivan. It offers 3 spacious rows of seating that are comfortable enough even for adults, and all the utility you could want from a family car. At the same time, however, it’s styled with more pleasing SUV looks that put most minivans in the shade.

The Atlas has some stiff competition from the likes of the Kia Telluride, Ford Bronco and Hyundai Palisade, but in its latest iteration makes some improvements with better standard equipment. The base-level SE model now comes with a digital instrument cluster, which is nice. With an added technology package, you also get some USB-C ports for your third-row passengers, which is perfect when everyone in the family has their own device.

Other trim levels include the SEL, SEL R-Line and SEL Premium, the latter of which starts at a more princely $52,265. The standard engine setup is a 4-cylinder unit offering 235-hp, but you can upgrade to a more impressive V6 delivering up to 276-hp. These are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and either FWD or AWD drivetrains.

Interior design is elegant and pleasing to the eye, but not exactly what you’d call luxurious. Where it really excels is in space. If you’re more interested in function, then the Atlas interior works very well. You can get up to an 8-inch infotainment screen, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Wi-Fi hotspot and 2 USB ports as standard features.

Its 5-star NHTSA rating makes it a further top pick for families, with standard forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert. Adaptive cruise control is also available.
