2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Is Cheaper Than the Three-Row Atlas

Car and Driver logo Car and Driver 1/14/2020 Joey Capparella
 
  • The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport starts at $31,565, $1000 cheaper than its bigger sibling.
  • This new variant has two rows of seats rather than the bigger Atlas's three-row setup, but it comes in the same S, SE, SEL, and SEL Premium trim levels.
  • The Atlas Cross Sport will arrive at dealerships this quarter.

A slightly smaller Atlas means a slightly smaller base price. As expected, the two-row 2020 Atlas Cross Sport starts at $31,565, $1000 cheaper than the three-row 2020 Atlas. That's for the base S model with a 235-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine and front-wheel drive.

Standard equipment for the S includes 18-inch wheels, cloth seats, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, blind-spot monitoring, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. 4Motion all-wheel drive is a $1900 option, as it is on higher trim levels. Those include the SE, which starts at $34,965 and offers a bit more equipment including leatherette upholstery, proximity-key entry, a power driver's seats, heated front seats, automatic climate control, and a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen. The SE is also available with Technology and R-Line packages, and models so equipped can be had with the more powerful 276-hp V-6 engine, which starts at $38,365.

The better-equipped SEL starts at $40,565 and is also offered with either the four-cylinder or the V-6; the sporty-ish R-Line appearance package is optional on the SEL, too. $47,315 gets you the top SEL Premium trim level, and it comes standard with 4Motion all-wheel drive and features such as 20-inch wheels, heated and cooled front seats and heated rear seats, and an upgraded audio system. A loaded SEL Premium with the R-Line package and the V-6 engine just crests the $50,000 barrier, at $50,815.

Volkswagen says the Atlas Cross Sport will start arriving at dealerships within the next few months, but certain combinations—such as the R-Line package and the four-cylinder SEL Premium model—won't be available until later.
