The Volkswagen Atlas Basecamp concept is ready for adventure
Volkswagen is showing the Atlas Basecamp concept at the 2019 New York Auto Show.
The concept imagines how owners might modify the Atlas crossover for use in outdoor activities like mountain biking, hiking and camping.
Concept wheels from tuning company fifteen52 wear upsized all-terrain tires, new H&R springs raise the Atlas by 1.5 inches and the Volkswagen Atlas gets some extra visual punch from a new body kit by Air Design.
Other modifications include matte-finish black-and-gray paintwork with various orange accents and "Basecamp" badges, as well as LED light bars.
Also on the roof is an aftermarket rack, the Front Runner Slim Line II, which adds even more storage space.
The concept was the brainchild of Alex Earle, exterior design manager at the Volkswagen Design Center in California, who the company says is an "avid cyclist."
Earle said in a statement, "Whether you are taking on a series of challenging single-tracks with your favorite mountain bike or enjoying a relaxing evening under the night sky, the versatility of the Basecamp Concept provides ideal mobile solutions for just about any adventure."
It's a wild concept.
Yet, at the same time, it's something we could see many people buying.
