The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
Life's As Big As You Make It!

                           

                           

Welcome Volkswagen's New Midsize SUV!

                           


                           

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas midsize sport utility vehicle, which officially entered series production in November of 2016, is due to arrive at United States dealerships by the Spring of 2017. Built on the same modular MQB platform as the iconic Golf, this SUV designed specifically for the American market is a very different "big brother" than the Golf whose underpinnings it shares.                           

Atlas was designed for the USA as a family activity vehicle, equipped with a full three rows of seating that includes enough third row legroom for adults to ride comfortably. Even with all three rows occupied, there is still room to carry luggage or gear for the family outing, going to weekend sports activities, or just handling the daily chores. The Atlas brings an innovative seating system to the market, which allows for the most comfortable ride for all occupants. The tilt-and-slide second row also makes access to the third row easy for both children and adults. A split folding second row means that a child seat can remain safely strapped in place without blocking the way into the last row.                           

Volkswagen is proud to be assembing the 2018 Atlas right here in the United States of America, at our Chattanooga, Tennessee plant complex. The Atlas shares its production facilities with our popular Passat midsize sedan. Series production to build up dealer inventory has been ongoing, as we lead up to the official rollout. Volkswagen is employing American design talent, American engineering, American market insight and American workers to produce a refined vehicle, ready to take America by storm. Wouldn't your family and active lifestyle want one?

Power and Performance

                           

The Atlas will be offered with two available engines. The first is VW's gas-sipping, four-cylinder, turbocharged, 2.0-liter direct-injection TSI model, which produces a generous 238 horsepower. And for drivers who need a little extra punch, the well-known Volkswagen VR6, 3.6-liter six-cylinder powerplant puts out 280 horsepower under the hood of the Atlas. Both engines are coupled to the VW 8-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® for smooth and responsive driving.

                           

Atlas will also come equipped with a Drive Mode Selector, which will help you make the most of engine power and smooth transmission under a variety of road or off-road conditions. Some Atlas 2.0T and 3.6 VR6 models will have front-wheel drive, while others, powered by the 3.6L VR6, will also be available with Volkswagen's latest-generation 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.

                           

                                                       

Atlas' Strength Is In Safety

                           

Volkswagen has always been committed to producing vehicles with the safety of driver and passengers in mind. Reducing or avoiding injury is critical when accidents happen. However, it is also a key Volkswagen principle to help drivers avoid accidents. Our advanced safety systems which are expected to be available with most trim levels of Atlas include a backup camera, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic warning, and collision mitigating braking. This is over and above our standard safety features, like safety belts, LATCH restraints for child seats, front and side airbags, and a host of engineered features designed to keep the accident outside and you safe inside.                           

However, nothing is as safe as a well-prepared driver. So when you're ready to take to the roads in an Atlas, make sure you come to our dealership and drive one for yourself. Our dealership and Volkswagen always encourage our customers to operate your VW safely, because we like you a lot!                           

Big Space

                           

The Atlas was designed with class-leading interior volume in mind - room for up to seven people and all the things that are needed to make your favorite experiences happen. As a matter of fact, going by the numbers, Atlas exceeds the interior volume of most of the competing vehicles in its class, including the Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot. Atlas will be second only to the GMC Acadia for the amount of inside space available to passengers and cargo.

Volkswagen Technology

                                                       

First thing you'll notice after getting behind the wheel of the 2018 Atlas and starting one up will be Volkswagen's new Digital Cockpit. It's more capable than your ordinary panel of gauges, because you can change it around to display the vehicle functions most important to you. If you use onboard navigation, the Digital Cockpit can also give you directional prompts on the driver's display, so you can keep your eyes where they belong. On the road (or off it, if that's what you're doing).

                           

Add to the standard onboard features and Digital Cockpit, all of Volkswagen's Car-Net capability will be available for you with the Atlas. You can operate select vehicle functions from a mobile app, connect your smartphone via Bluetooth to the Atlas, and obtain motorist help with the available Safety and Security subscription based service.                           

Atlas R-Line

                           

One of the available packages will be for Atlas R-Line. From unique performance-inspired styling to design enhancements, the R-Line Atlas takes style and sporty features in an SUV to the level of Volkswagen. Available on upcoming SE and SEL trims, with the 4-cylinder TSI Turbo (FWD Only) and 3.6-liter VR6 (FWD or 4MOTION AWD), the R-Line package is expected to go on sale later after the initial Spring 2017 launch of the model.

                           

The new trim package augments the Chattanooga-built SUV's sportiness with exterior and interior design elements that give it an even more dynamic appearance. The Atlas R-Line was debuted at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The R-Line package offers a full suite of connected vehicle services and driver assistance features. The exterior styling details include 20-inch aluminum-alloy twin-spoke wheels; R-Line badging; unique front and rear bumpers that incorporate stylish air intakes at the front and a diffusor in glossy black paint at the rear; and side skirts. Inside, the Atlas R-Line welcomes drivers with the R-Line logo on the start screen of Volkswagen's Modular Infotainment Platform (MIB II). Other interior features include an R-Line steering wheel clip and stainless-steel sport pedal covers.

                           

Atlas Weekend Edition

                           

Unveiled at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, the Atlas Weekend Edition is the modern-day "Go Anywhere" family adventure vehicle, which pays tribute to the Vanagon and Eurovan "weekender" pop-up campers made popular by previous generations of Volkswagen fans. The all-new Atlas was designed to let people live a life as big as their imaginations. The Atlas Weekend Edition integrates several available accessories that enhance the SUV's versatility with innovative cargo solutions. The Weekend Edition concept was based on an SEL Premium model, equipped with a 3.6-liter VR6 engine rated for 276-280 horsepower, paired with Volkswagen's advanced 4Motion® all-wheel drive with Drive Mode Select.

                           

Fitted with 18-inch Prisma wheels in anthracite gray finish, the Atlas Weekend Edition features the Urban Loader cargo box. When empty, the Urban Loader has a sleek, minimal appearance; when needed for hauling, it can expand to a 17.7 cubic-foot container. In addition, the Weekend Edition features base carrier bars for attaching accessories for skis, snowboards, kayaks or bikes. Reaching the roof cargo or helping children in and out is easy with practical side steps. A cargo divider provides a safe, pet-friendly barrier behind the second row, and passengers in the second row get an innovative universal tablet mount, for entertainment and games instead of "Are we there yet?" Tablets traveling onboard can use the Atlas available Media Control using Wi-Fi technology (Available for Android and iOS tablets and smartphones). More practical accessories finish out the Weekend Edition concept: window and hood deflectors, a heavy-duty trunk liner with seat-back coverage, a privacy cargo cover, all-weather rubber mats, splashguards, and wheel locks. Many of these accessories will be available from Volkswagen dealers in 2017.
