A spacious SUV like the Volkswagen Atlas is a convenient option whether you're running errands, going on a family road trip, or trekking through storms in the winter. So, what is this SUV really capable of?

To show families in Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton what it can offer, Maguire Volkswagen put together a collection of Volkswagen Atlas reviews.

Volkswagen Atlas Passenger & Cargo Room

The VW Atlas was designed comfortably accommodate the whole family and offer enough storage space for your bags. It features: 

  • Three rows of seats with room for up to seven people. 
  • 153.7 cubic feet of passenger space overall. 
  • Plenty of legroom, with 41.5 inches of front legroom, 37.6 inches in the middle, and 33.7 inches of legroom in the third row.
  • If you want easy access to the rear seats and extra cargo room, the second-row seats can slide forward and fold down. With both the middle and rear seats folded down, you'll have up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo room.

Volkswagen Atlas Safety

To give you peace of mind during your drive, the VW Atlas was built with a safety cage whose frame features both front and rear crumple zones. Inside, there are Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) and six airbags, including Side Curtain Protection® head airbags that cover all three rows of seats.

There's also lots of technology that can help prevent an accident before it occurs. Standard driver assistance features like the Rear-View Camera System allow you to see what's around your SUV. You can also count on features like a Blind Spot Monitor and Front Assist to watch out for you.

Volkswagen Atlas Infotainment System

When you're not using it to check behind you, the screen in your dashboard serves as the home of the Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect infotainment system. It's available with either a 6.5- or 8-inch Composition Media touchscreen.

Both options are Bluetooth® compatible, so you can make phone calls and stream music, podcasts, and audiobooks from your library. To access all your apps, the system is also compatible with Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and MirrorLink®.

Volkswagen Atlas Specs

The VW Atlas is available with either front-wheel drive or 4MOTION® all-wheel drive with active control. It also offers two options for what's under the hood. The more fuel-efficient of the two is a 2.0L TSI® 4-cylinder turbocharged engine.

This powertrain can produce up to 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It works with an 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode. Together, this combination, and the standard Start-Stop System, help it get up an EPA-estimated 20 MPG city and 26 MPG highway[i].
