2018 Volkswagen Atlas: the German People-Mover
February 15 2018, Yorkdale Volkswagen
Buyers looking for a spacious and versatile vehicle that isn’t a minivan have quite a few options available to them, but none of these alternatives are necessarily capable of meeting the needs of buyers who also like to have a little fun behind the wheel. Until now that is. Meet the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, the newest midsize SUV to join the market.
Introduced as a concept back in 2013, the 2018 Atlas features the same rugged and bold design that we saw on the CrossBlue Concept with an unmistakable refinement and upscale aspect as well. Oh, and there is truly a ton of space inside the new Atlas.
Seven Passengers and All Their Luggage will Fit in the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
The 2018 Atlas is the first Volkswagen SUV to feature three rows of seats. That means that you can fit up to seven passengers inside the Atlas, but you can also opt for two captain’s seats in the middle row. Regardless of which configuration you choose, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is a very spacious vehicle.
It may sit in between the Tiguan and Touareg in VW’s SUV lineup when it comes to price, it is definitely the most versatile model in the German automaker’s lineup. Between 1,571 litres and 2,471 litres are available depending on how you configure the cabin, and passengers all have plenty of leg and headroom.
You will also find within the Atlas all of the tech features you could ever want. Indeed, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity to go along with a wide range of other features found in the various versions.
These include things like three-zone climate controls, power tailgate, a panoramic sunroof, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, heated rear seats, leather seats, and Volkswagen’s exclusive digital cockpit. The 2018 Atlas starts at just $35,690.
A Four-Cylinder and a V6 for the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is powered out of the gate by a four-cylinder engine that delivers 235 horsepower and that can tow up to 907 kg or 2,000 lb. This option is by far the most efficient with an average fuel consumption rating of 10.6 litres per 100 kilometres in the city, and 8.0 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway.
Next up is a more powerful 3.6-litre V6 engine that delivers 276 horsepower and that can tow up to 5,000 lb.
As you can see, you have all the options, versions and features you need with the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas with a ton of space to boot. To learn more about VW’s new SUV, contact us today at Yorkdale Volkswagen.
