The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas offers a three-row crossover to the US market. It is provided in three trims S, SE, and SEL with a choice of a 2.0 liter turbo or 3.6 liter V-6 engine and front-wheel or all-wheel drive (called 4MOTION by VW and only paired with the 3.6 liter). This gives owners a total of 15 different trim combinations to choose from!

Built in Chattanooga TN, the Atlas is geared to the rapidly growing crossover market in the US. It has many features that US owners will love, including standard LED headlights on all trims, a second-row sliding seat that can have a child seat in place and still allow access to the third row. Infotainment is provided by VW's Car-Net system. Interior room for all rows is above average, and the second row comes with a standard bench seat or available captain's chairs.

Either engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission to optimize efficiency. The Atlas has been designed with a strong and smooth suspension that will give a great ride on any road conditions. Owners can opt for safety features such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning by choosing the Technology Package on the SE or choosing the SEL trim.
