Volkswagen's first three-row crossover is a decidedly American affair.
The three-row Atlas will be the largest Volkswagen ever assembled in the US.
Two engines are on offer -- a 238-horsepower I4, or a 280-horsepower VR6. The sole transmission is an eight-speed automatic.
Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available, too.
The Atlas will come in five different trim levels.
It's built on the MQB platform, same as the Audi TT and Volkswagen Golf, believe it or not.
LED headlights and running lights are standard, with LED taillights available as an option.
Standard infotainment tech includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
A number of safety features are on offer, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning and automatic parking assist.
The Atlas goes on sale in Spring 2017.
It sort of looks like a German Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The side is surprisingly muscular, with a strong shoulder line and some very well emphasized fenders.
A good number of interior parts are borrowed from other VW vehicles.
It's a fancy-ish affair that doesn't overcomplicate things.
Space? The Atlas has plenty of it.
The car will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
Volkswagen debuted the Atlas at the Santa Monica Pier, the beginning of the famed US Route 66.
Yes, Audi's Virtual Cockpit tech is coming along for the ride. In the Atlas, it's called Volkswagen Digital Cockpit.
Do you have a surfboard instead of children? It'll fit!
Do you have a weird kayak thing instead of children? That fits, too!
I don't think you needed a picture to explain that two scuba tanks and flippers will fit in a three-row crossover, but here you go anyway.
