The Volkswagen brand enters a new arena with the new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, a full-size SUV with available 4MOTION® all-wheel drive (AWD) and seating for seven. This SUV will also be assembled in America, marking the largest Volkswagen vehicle to be assembled right here at home.

Highlights to Look Forward to in the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

Here are some of the choicest features you’ll find on the 2018 Atlas:

  • Standard LED Headlights and Daytime Running Lights keep things looking bright.
  • An available 8.0-inch touchscreen keeps the cockpit looking clean and open.
  • Available 4MOTION® AWD (optional on the V6-equipped models) is smooth and capable, with the ability to transfer up to 50% of its torque to the rear wheels for superior traction.
  • Optional second-row captain chairs reduce seating capacity to six, but certainly up the comfort and elegance of the interior.
  • The SE trim with Technology package brings in driver-assist features like Forward Collision Warning with Brake Assist and Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go Functionality, and Lane Keeping Assist. Other trim levels bring even more driver assist features!

Woebcken, CEO of the North America Region, Volkswagen. “The Atlas marks a brand new journey for Volkswagen to enter into the heart of the American market.” —from a Oct 27, 2016 Volkswagen Press Release
