The all-new Volkswagen Atlas is a feature-packed, family-sized SUV designed for the contemporary, adventure loving family. The Atlas has room enough to handle everything from the soccer mom carpool to weekend getaways. This car is a total hit because it’s been designed for the American family.
Roomy and Spacious
The most impressive interior amenity that families fall in love with on the Atlas is the space. The Volkswagen Atlas seats up to seven passengers with clean design elements and quality craftmanship. The fold-and-slide mechanism on the second-row seats will delight third row passengers, as it makes it quite easy to enter and exit the SUV. With over 20 cubic feet of cargo space, there’s more than enough room for that long trip to Grandma’s house.
Keeping your family safe is a number one priority while on a road trip. Luckily, the 2017 Atlas packs in a ton of safety features. Three different rearview camera views allow you to see what’s behind you before backing up to ensure you don’t hit anything. If a crash ever happens, the car has a safety cage that will crumple in the front and back to keep forces away from the people in the car.
The Atlas also offers an automatic parking system to aid steering when either parallel or perpendicular parking, an especially helpful tool for new drivers in the family.
Adventurous families dream of boating, camping, climbing mountains, and swimming at beaches, rain or shine. If you want a car that can handle any terrain and unpredictable weather conditions, the Atlas is the right pick for you.
With a 3.6L V6, eight-speed automatic transmission, 4MOTION all-wheel drive, and 5,000-lb towing capacity, you can explore the world without being held back. If you’d like to feel less like you’re driving a minivan and more like you’re driving a race car, slip into Sport mode for increased power and performance.
Families love being connected, which is why having a car packed with technology is so crucial. The Atlas offers Driver Profile Settings, which provide up to four family drivers with personalized driver settings. The Atlas also offers VW Car-Net Security & Service, which checks to see if the doors are locked and can call for emergency assistance.
Another feature included is the VW Car-Net App-Connect, which connects to your phone to let you run certain apps on the Atlas’s touchscreen system. While it can be hard for families to agree on what music to play, at least whatever you’re listening to will sound good with a Fender Premium Audio System.
You can also take advantage of VW Car-Net Guide and Inform, which helps you navigate, and Climatronic 3-zone automatic climate control, which offers customized climate conditions for everyone in the family.
