Only available on the top-of-the-line SEL Premium is the Digital Cockpit. This customizable digital gauge cluster can put the navigation map front and center.

Drivers can choose what information to be displayed between the gauges and at the center of each gauge as well.

The interior of the Atlas is full of fine materials, save for the plastic-y looking wood trim on the dash.
