This family-friendly model sits upon aluminum alloy wheels ranging from 17-21 inches in diameter.
The Atlas still offers good value. 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 a convenient way to keep you ahead of the game.
