2021 VW Atlas Cross Sport Performance

The 2021 VW Atlas Cross Sport features two different engine options, with each one boasting its own impressive performance potential. The standard engine is a 2.0L turbocharged one that comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode. This engine is capable of producing 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

The available engine is a 3.6L V6 engine, which also comes paired with the 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode. This engine amplifies the power, providing 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines are also available in an all-wheel drive configuration. With this configuration, you'll enjoy 4MOTION® with Active Control, which allows you to select from four modes that help the vehicle adapt to different terrain.

Snow Mode, On-Road Mode, and Off-Road Mode cater to different types of performance needs. There's even an Off-Road Custom Mode that lets you select different settings for steering and other all-wheel drive functions to give you greater control over your vehicle.

2021 VW Atlas Cross Sport Safety

Plenty of safety systems are at work in order to give you more control. These include standard Engine Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control, and Electronic Differential Lock. You will also get a standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System to let you know when the tire pressure may be running low.

The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System brings your tires to a halt when a collision occurs. You will also be able to make use of a Rear View Camera System to provide better views of your surroundings, so that you can carefully reverse.

Plenty of advanced safety technology is also on offer with IQ.Drive®. Standard Front Assist includes Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking, and Pedestrian Monitoring-all of which work to detect a possible collision, warn you ahead of time, and even brake the vehicle when needed.

Other available features include Adaptive Cruise Control, which allows you to set a following distance from the car in front of you. Then, your vehicle will adjust its speed when necessary. Available Travel Assist, a semi-autonomous feature, helps your vehicle brake and accelerate accordingly and uses technology to make sure you're staying within lane lines.

2021 VW Atlas Cross Sport Technology

Technology is just as abundant as safety in the VW Atlas Cross Sport, providing you with plenty of entertainment options. Connect to Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ to listen to your music or select the available 3-month trial subscription of SiriusXM® with 360L.

You will also enjoy access to Volkswagen Car-Net®, a VW-specific app that features different functions to help you stay in tune with your vehicle. If you upgrade to a model that offers Remote Start, you'll be able to access this feature through the Remote Commands on the app. With this, you can also remotely lock and unlock the doors and even honk your horn.

For further customization, you can also find Family Guardian Alerts on the app. These allow you to have certain settings in place regarding speed, driving boundaries, and curfew limits to help ensure that certain drivers are staying safe.
