Can We Expect Major Changes To The Atlas In 2020?

The Size is Key

In order to be able to offer as much space as it does, Volkswagen cut back on the interior craftsmanship. This is a mid-size SUV but it has three rows. It’s one of the most versatile vehicles with plenty of luggage space and a roomy third row. Furthermore, Volkswagen has developed a version called the Atlas Cross Sport which has only two rows. This is the model that is receiving all the attention. It has reduced the internal dimensions in favor of sleeker and sportier look and compact design.

Are There New Safety Features?

It now includes advanced safety features like blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts and the automatic emergency braking are standard from the start. Volkswagen’s Car-Net connectivity system keeps you connected to maps, music, and apps on your dashboard and is an agreeable way to keep you ahead of the game. The Atlas always offers good value.

What Spec Can Be Expected

The entry-level models still offer a 2.0L turbo-four engine which delivers 235 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The V6, on the other hand, has a 3.6L engine and delivers an impressive 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of rotational force. Both powertrains deliver their power via a modern 8-speed gearbox.  While the V6 offers a choice between front and all-wheel drive, the turbo-four can only be configured as a front-wheel drive. Most models will be fitted with the V6.
