Your Inside Look at the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas

Connected Cabin

Heading out of town on a road trip or just driving to work? Either way, you can queue up your favorite playlist on the Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect sound system, which is equipped with a 6.5” touch-screen. Use Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ to access select apps, navigation, and music from your smartphone.

You can also enjoy added confidence behind the wheel, courtesy of the Volkswagen suite of available Driver Assistance features. Sensors, radars, and cameras combine to look out for other vehicles, obstacles, and pedestrians to help keep everyone safe.

Available features include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Light Assist
  • Lane Assist
  • Area View
  • Park Assist
  • Park Distance Control w/ Maneuver Braking
  • Front Assist
  • Rear Traffic Alert

Space Versatility

Inside the cabin of the VW Atlas, as many as seven passengers can find their preferred spot across the three rows of seats. If you have small children, you’ll be happy to know that three child seats fit comfortably side-by-side-by-side in the second row. And with 17 cup holders throughout the interior, everyone can keep a beverage within reach.

If you need to load the Atlas with gear or project materials for weekend plans, you can fold the second- and third-row seats down to open 96.8 cu. ft. of storage space. Or, you can create a seating configuration to balance passengers and packages.

Fully-Loaded Performance

Keeping up with your family’s adventures requires an engine that can produce. That’s why the Atlas comes standard with a 235-horsepower 2.0L Turbo engine that produces 258 lb.-ft. of torque. You can also opt for the available 276-horsepower 3.6L V6 engine that delivers 266 lb.-ft. of torque to confidently tow up to 5,000 lbs. when properly equipped.

With the 8-speed automatic transmission, the Atlas can balance efficiency and exceptional performance. You can use the Tiptronic® mode to shift manually through the gears. Switch between four different all-wheel-drive modes with 4MOTION® with Active Control. Each mode optimizes the settings of the Atlas to fit your current driving conditions.
