Looking for a spacious, three-row SUV with a soft, gentle ride? The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas is one of the biggest midsize crossovers on the market, but it rides like a car. Volkswagen redesigned the new Atlas to give it an even bolder, more sophisticated look. Its larger three-bar grille, bigger bumpers, and revised LED headlights and taillights combine for a more stately, elegant appearance. The Atlas also has an updated Car-Net service, and you'll find a wide range of models for sale at Flagship Volkswagen.

Performance

You'll enjoy a silky smooth ride in the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas. Its four-wheel independent suspension and accurate steering keep it poised and composed on curvy roads and rough pavement. It handles corners with more confidence and stability than most midsize SUVs. The Atlas comes standard with front-wheel drive, but Volkswagen's 4Motion all-wheel-drive system is available for better traction on slick streets. Its drive mode selector has four modes (Dry, Rainy, Snowy, and Rough) that enable you to customize its ride to suit the road conditions. There are two available engines in the new Atlas, including:

  • A 235-horsepower four-cylinder motor
  • A 276-horsepower V6 engine
The Atlas gets exceptional gas mileage for its size. Models with the four-cylinder engine get 22 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. You can easily pull a boat or camper behind it, because the Atlas has a 5,000-pound tow rating when properly equipped.

Interior/Technology

Seven people can stretch out and relax comfortably inside the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas. There's plenty of head- and legroom in all three rows of its uncomplicated cabin. Higher trims are adorned with top-notch materials like wood, metal accents, and diamond quilted-designed cloth. There's more than enough room for your camping supplies, luggage or sports gear in the Atlas. It boasts 20.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, 55.5 cubic feet behind the second row, and 96.8 cubic feet of room with both rear rows folded. Standard amenities in the Atlas include:

  • An infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touch screen
  • Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Mirror Link smartphone compatibility
  • VW’s Car-Net service with a Wi-Fi hot spot
The Car-Net service allows you to use a mobile app to remotely interact with your Atlas, allowing you to start, stop, lock, and unlock it from a distance. It also features vehicle maintenance reports and a Wi-Fi hot spot, and it can help you locate a parking spot or your last parked location. Optional features in the new Atlas include leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, and a panoramic sunroof. The Atlas's available digital cockpit has a high-definition digital screen that can store up to four driver profiles, providing important information like speed, estimated fuel economy, and estimated travel time right up front where you need it.

Safety

You'll feel safe in the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas, which earned five out of five stars for overall safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Standard driver assistance features include:

  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • A post-collision braking system
