The Expansive and Smart Volkswagen Atlas

July 12th, 2022 by

The Volkswagen Atlas is the largest model currently available in the Volkswagen lineup. The midsize, three-row SUV offers abundant space and comfort to enjoy the drive no matter your destination. The interior comfort mixes well with the sophisticated and stylish exterior design with lovely black accents throughout the simple yet elegant design. The Atlas has been the perfect family car with incredible safety ratings and reliability since its debut in 2018.


Under the hood of the Volkswagen Atlas, you’ll find power coming from a 235-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine on standard models. You can upgrade to the 276-hp 3.6-liter V6 when you need a little power boost. The transmission is an eight-speed automatic and choose between front-wheel drive or Volkswagen’s patented 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.

The all-wheel-drive system offers multiple driving modes to allow you to adjust for conditions such as On-road, Snow, Off-road, and Custom Offroad. Off-road mode is equipped with Hill Descent Control that automatically kicks in to keep speeds under 19 mph on hill gradients over 10%. The Atlas provides just the right amount of power blended with comfort to head to the mountains or run errands in town.

Interior Comfort and Design

The expansive three-row Volkswagen Atlas offers ample interior head space with enough room for full-sized adults, even in the third row. The second row can fit three full-size adults, with the standard bench allowing 7 passengers to ride comfortably. The front seats come standard with seat heaters, allowing your passengers to control their comfort with standard dual climate control with a second panel that the second row can control.

The infotainment is thoughtfully integrated into the interior design to allow owners to manage the tech easily. The Volkswagen Atlas comes with an 8-inch touchscreen display, wireless charging, and up to seven USB ports. The Car-Net features give real-time updates on the status of the Atlas, such as location, fuel levels, and door alerts. You can control your windows and doors with Car-Net from your smartphone remotely.

Safety Features

Safety is a core value for Volkswagen, and the features built-in are designed to keep you and your passengers safe in the event of an accident.

The Volkswagen IQ.Drive allows you to drive with peace of mind with enhanced safety features and driver-assist technology. IQ.Drive includes travel assistance in providing you with help behind the wheel by assisting with steering, speeding up, and slowing down. The adaptive cruise control keeps you moving, detects vehicles ahead of you, and helps you adjust speed when needed.

The built-in collision alerts will help monitor the road and apply pressure to the brakes to avoid collisions and warn you if there may be a potential collision. Emergency assistance can help bring the car to a complete stop if you become unresponsive when you drive, keeping you and others safe on the road.


The 2022 Volkswagen Atlas is a roomy, stylish alternative to a minivan for big families on the go. The expansive cargo area and third-row seating accommodate passengers comfortably and are the perfect vehicle for the outdoorsy types or for running around town.
