What Improvements Can We Expect To See In 2020?


As a mid-size three-row Atlas SUV It’s one of the most practical vehicles with plenty of cargo space and a spacious third row. In order to be able to offer as much space as it does, Volkswagen cut back on the interior craftsmanship. In addition, Volkswagen has developed a more compact 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 in diameter.

Safety Features

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.

The Ever-Important Spec

Although most Atlases will be fitted with a V6, 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.  but while the V6 offers a choice between front and all-wheel drive, the turbo-four can only be configured as a front-wheel drive.

The Atlas performs admirably around town. All things considered, the Atlas is a welcome addition to the SUV segment and a much-needed refreshment for the German brand. There are many models with the Atlas name and they come with additional trim levels such as trim adding parking sensors and a power liftgate.  If you are looking to lease a reliable and comfortable SUV this is the model for you.
