2020 VW Atlas: News, Specs, Equipment, Price

VW’s large Atlas SUV is designed for the US market and
produced in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The model provides abundant cargo capacity
and three rows of seating. The high-quality interior is also the model’s strong
side while guarantees a good on-road performance as well. VW also offers a long
list of advanced safety equipment and premium features.

The three-row Atlas arrived for the 2018 model year and VW
announced recently a two-row version for the Chinese and US markets. The new
version should be about 7.5 inches shorter than the three-row Atlas and with
some sports styling cues such as the raked roofline. The new version should be
marketed as the Atlas Cross Sport or Atlas Sport in the US and arrive as the
2020 model.

As for the three-row 2020 VW Atlas, the mode will stay largely unchanged. VW added recently new trim options and expanded the availability of some features. For the new model year, there should be even more features available in lower grades and new color and wheel options.

2020 VW Atlas: Design

The 2020 VW Atlas will continue the journey with the same
styling and there could just be new body shades and wheel options for the new
model year.

The Atlas is based on brand’s ubiquitous MQB platform and
sits on the 117.3-inch wheelbase while measures 198.3 inches in length.

The model adopts VW’s conventional styling scheme combined with some unique sheet metal details. The grille and headlights design are familiar from the rest of the brand’s vehicle range while the creased hood and side panels add to the visual impression. Atlas has also conventionally styled rear end and comes with standard 18-inch wheels which will grow up to 21 inches as the top option. 

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the model maximizes the space and
practicality and has well-arranged controls. There is plenty of the headroom in
all rows and comfort in the first two with a little compromise in the rearmost
row. With all rows folded, the Atlas has 96.8 cubes of cargo room and 20.6
cubes with all seats up.

The base version will equip a 6.5-inch center screen with smartphone support, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, etc. The next grade will upgrade with the nicer upholstery, heated front seats, three-zone climate control, larger 8-inch-based infotainment interface, etc. A step before the top trim, VW Digital Cockpit with digitalized gauge cluster will be available as well as additional safety equipment. The top-of-the-range version will include full leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front row, heated middle seats, Fender sound system, and more.

The Atlas will also extensively use modern safety systems including surround vision cameras, park assist, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control. More advanced systems should appear in lower grades for the next model year.

2020 VW Atlas: Powertrains, MPG

2020 VW Atlas will continue to get the power from the familiar engine options. VW doesn’t currently offer the all-wheel-drive option with the turbo-4 engine and we don’t know would this combination appear for the new model year.

Atlas will combine both engines with the 8-speed automatic transmission and its most capable version will tow up to 5, 000 pounds.

A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine will motivate
Atlas’ 4,500 pounds curb weight with 235 hp and torque of 258 pound-feet. As an
alternative, buyers can opt for the 3.6-liter V-6 engine. In that case, they
can count on 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.

The Atlas will come with all-wheel drive and modes for snow
and off-road but won’t provide exceptional off-road capability. With 8 inches
of ground clearance, one should not tackle extremely rough terrains with this
SUV.

As for the fuel efficiency, a turbo-4 engine will provide a
slightly better score with 22 mpg city and 26 mpg highway with the two-wheel
drive. With the power on the front wheels, V-6 will manage 18/24 mpg
city/highway.  The AWD V-6 will lose additional
mpg on both city and highway drive.

2020 VW Atlas: Arrival, Price

2020 VW Atlas will appear by the end of the year. The price should stay in the vicinity of the current range. The base Atlas should start around $31, 000.
