2018 Volkswagen Atlas: What You Need to Know

The all-new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is VW's first 3-row SUV and the largest vehicle it sells. It ranks in the top half of the crowded midsize SUV class. The Atlas doesn’t offer much more than lower-priced rivals, though it does provide generous passenger and cargo space and a long list of standard and available features.

2018 Volkswagen Atlas REVIEW

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is a three-row SUV with seating for up to seven that traces its history back to the CrossBlue concept that debuted in 2013. The middle rows have 60/40-split folding seats, but two captain's chairs can be substituted, dropping passenger capacity to six. Access to the two third-row seats is made easier thanks to middle seats that slide and tilt forward. Unlike in most rival SUVs, the third-row seats can accommodate adults. Cargo space behind those seats is limited, though, as is the case with most SUVs in this class. Up front, there's an abundance of room, with a wide center console and plenty of space between the door and seats. The windows are somewhat short for an SUV of this size, giving it a more carlike feel. Even so, visibility is excellent, aided by very thin front roof pillars. In the preproduction model we previewed around VW's assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, power from the 280-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine was more than adequate to accelerate the vehicle up to highway speeds without ever sounding taxed. On the highway, the cabin remains remarkably quiet, with little to no road or wind noise. The ride quality is similarly pleasant, smoothing over road imperfections while maintaining a solid, planted feel that is emblematic of German cars. A 238-hp four-cylinder engine will also be available, as will VW's 4Motion all-wheel-drive system, but only with the V6. Both engines will be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Direct competitors include the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander. VW expects pricing to be in lockstep with those rivals, as well.
