2018 Volkswagen Atlas

2018 Volkswagen Atlas: the VW for Your Family

Volkswagen already has an extensive lineup of new vehicles to offer Canadian consumers, but for the German automaker there are always new segments to explore and more needs to be met. Enter the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, VW’s first three-row midsize SUV that was born four years ago as the CrossBlue concept.

All the Space You Could Ever Want Is in the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas slots between the VW Tiguan and the Touareg in the German manufacturer’s lineup in terms of price. In terms of size, it’s right at the top of the pecking order. The VW Atlas can seat up to 7 passengers while still offering plenty of cargo space.

Compared to the Touareg, it offers nearly 600 litres more cargo capacity with all seats in place, and 2,471 litres of cargo space with the rear seats folded. That’s a lot of space, more than enough for your family’s needs.

Inside the Atlas, buyers not only get interior space and comfort, they also get the very latest technologies offered by both Volkswagen and the industry as a whole. This includes standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and VW’s digital cockpit in the highest trim.

Other features found in the various versions of the 2018 Atlas include heated rear seats, a panoramic sunroof, three-zone climate controls, a power tailgate, blind spot monitoring, and more.

Power and Fuel-Efficiency Under the Hood of the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

There are two engines available in the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. The first is a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine that provides 235 horsepower and an impressive fuel economy rating of just 10.6 litres per 100 kilometres in the city, and 8.0 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway.

The second option is a more powerful 3.6-litre V6 engine that offers 276 horsepower. 4Motion all-wheel drive comes either as an option or standard depending on the version. Towing capacity is set at 907 kg (2,000 lb) for the first engine, and 2,273 kg (5,000 lb) with the V6 model.
