Is the Volkswagen Atlas a Good SUV?
Lucky for us, the rise of the SUV has made long-distance driving comfortable and easy. The midsize Volkswagen Atlas, for example, features customizable seating and cargo space, with room for up to seven people, and plenty of legroom to boot. Add in impressive fuel economy, a suite of advanced safety features and the latest in media connectivity, and you’ve got everything you need on four wheels.
What engine does the Atlas have?
VW offers two engines for the Atlas. The 2.0-liter TSI makes 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. A 3.6-liter FSI engine rated at 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque is standard in the other trims and available in the base.
How many seats does the Atlas have?
The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas has 3 rows of seating. All total, this amounts to a seating capacity of up to 7 passengers when all seats are in place.
Atlas Towing Capacity
When properly equipped, the Atlas 3.6 FSI can tow up to 5,000 pounds. Or, in more practical terms, the Atlas is strong enough to haul a camper trailer, a small boat, a pair of jet skis, motorcycles, four-wheeled vehicles – are we missing anything?
For those looking for something slightly smaller, the Atlas also offers a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. With 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, the towing capacity is reduced to 2,000 pounds. Or, enough to tow a trailer outfitted with a canoe, kayaks, bikes or a small boat.
What is 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive?
Designed to provide added traction right when you need it most, 4MOTION® automatically directs power to the wheel or wheels in need of extra power. The Atlas AWD system also includes other customized driver modes, including Off-Road, Custom Off-Road, Snow and On-Road. The On-Road mode includes sub-settings for Sport, Eco, and Normal, while the Custom Off-Road includes Hill Hold Assist, for helping you start on a steep incline or decline.
What is the Atlas Cargo Capacity?
The Atlas truly shines. Depending on your seating configuration, this SUV offers up to 20.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. Fold down the second-row and third-row seating, and you’ve got a whopping 96.8 cubic feet. What does this mean? Trust us when we say you can fit it all in, and then some.
But that’s just in the back. The Atlas also includes under-floor storage with felt lining, four trunk tie-down hooks, plus the ability to add a roof rack. Because really, you can never have too much stuff.
