Current Model
Volkswagen's Atlas is a formidable competitor among three-row SUVs. The Atlas drives well, with a comfortable ride and surprisingly agile handling for its size.
The cabin is quiet and very accommodating, including a true third-row seat that's fit for adults. A unique, effortlessly articulating second row allows a clear access path to the wayback. The controls are a model of clarity, with an easy-to-use infotainment system. Though the V6 engine and smooth eight-speed automatic make the Atlas feel lively during everyday driving, its acceleration trails competitors' and its 20 mpg overall fuel economy is not outstanding. Towing capacity is a generous 5,000 pounds. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning, and lane keeping assistance are standard.
