Mention Volkswagen to just about anyone and the last thing they think about is a midsize SUV. The manufacturer is known for sensible sedans, and the adorable and fun-to-drive Beetle. It has the Touareg, but it doesn't offer a third-row seating and can be targeted more by the luxury sector. Conversely, the Tiguan is a compact crossover that doesn't deliver the performance and mid-range offerings of a three-row crossover.

However, VW is looking to change that handily with their new American-designed and American-built Atlas crossover sport utility vehicle. This three-row SUV is exactly what the doctor ordered to revitalize the VW line and put it in solid competition with other auto manufacturers on the roads. Read about the range of features, options and performance you'll find when you drive the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, and where you can get behind the wheel of one soon.

2018 Volkswagen Atlas

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is brand new. It's not just redesigned - it's a brand new vehicle for the midsize crossover sector, and it offers more in terms of space and performance than its compact cousins. While it's not a luxury-level vehicle, it will give you plenty of room, technology and features to get you anywhere you want to go.

Performance and Engines

There are five trim levels for the VW Atlas, which gives you lots of room for customization. At the base level, you get a four-cylinder engine that puts out 235 horsepower, with standard front wheel drive. You also get the option for a V6 engine which can be upgraded to All Wheel Drive. Regardless of the level you choose, you get an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Infotainment Systems and Technology

The range of technology features and options available in the Atlas is impressive. You get Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink for smartphone app integration. You also get a 12.3-inch driver information display, an available premium Fender audio system with 12 speakers and the Volkswagen App-Connect system.

In terms of safety technology, you also get options like adaptive cruise control, frontal collision warning and mitigation with automatic braking, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alerts, lane departure warning, parking assist, post-collision automatic braking and the VW Car-Net telematics package.

Driving, Comfort and Ride

The driving experience of the new Atlas is nothing short of outstanding. You get smooth shifting from the 8-speed automatic, with confident steering and athletic handling. It has a supremely quiet cabin, using a sleek and clean design as well as high-quality touches that give you an upscale feel. There is also tons of room in all three rows for passengers and driver alike. The displays are easy to read, and the controls are easy to use and reach, resulting in an overall refined and straightforward vehicle.
