Volkswagen Atlas - Consumer Reports

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 third-row seat that truly fits adults. A unique, effortlessly articulating second row allows a clear access path to the wayback. The controls are well-laid-out, with clear gauges and 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. A 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder is also available. Towing capacity is a generous 5,000-pounds. FCW, AEB, BSW, and rear cross traffic warning are standard.
