The Volkswagen Atlas is a lovely three row crossover.
However, in the last couple of months, Volkswagen trotted out a hotter smaller newer Atlas sport, kind of leaving this guy in the dust.
So wonder what a couple of months will do though because here at the Chicago Auto Show, Volkswagen has the new Atlas and it pretty much brings things back to Eden The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas has debuted here at the Chicago Auto Show.
Perhaps the most important part of its mild refresh here, at least in the visual department is the addition of the new Volkswagen badge inside and out, you'll be seeing that on a lot more Volkswagens in the near future.
Now in addition, there are standard LED headlights and the whole vehicle has been given kind of a nip and tuck to bring a little closer in looks department to the Atlas cross Somehow Volkswagen also managed to grow three inches of length on this thing in the process too.
More space never hurts.
Inside there's a new steering wheel once again wearing the new Volkswagen logo, as well as some new contrast stitching.
The infotainment system in the middle of the dashboard runs the latest version of Volkswagen's car-net, which includes a Wi-Fi hotspot, Android auto and apple carplay on all but the base trims.
In addition to that, there's a whole bunch of standard safety systems include automatic emergency breaking and pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, you name it.
Of course there are still some options, you can add adaptive cruise control and 360 surround view camera on top of that as well.
Now since this is just a mild nip and tuck the power trains are relatively unchanged.
The base engine is still a two liter turbo four cylinder making 235 horsepower, but you can option that up to a 3.6 liter v r six that makes 276 Now there are some changes all wheel drive is finally available on both engines and not just one so you get a little bit extra peace of mind in the snow too.
The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas goes on sale this spring and I would be genuinely surprised if it wasn't too far off from the current alysus starting price of about $32,000
