2020 Volkswagen Atlas enriched the segment of three-row crossover SUVs with its family-oriented traits. The large families could take a sigh of relief when they see the spacious and well-appointed cabin room of this recently released Volkswagen model edition.
As a three-row crossover SUV, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas doesn’t only offer a neatly arranged spacious interior but also provides for all its occupants the luxury of a flashy, yet comfortable ride experience that can only be possible, if there is a powerful engine under its hood with all the right set of driving dynamics.
Utility is its Calling Card
At their showroom, we found the Santa Cruz Volkswagen shoppers discussing and appreciating this vehicle model mostly because of the space it has provided for each and also about the surprisingly easy access to the easy-to-slide second row through the big door openings. The amount of space that it has allotted for the cargo, makes it top its own segment as you can measure it to be 20.6 cubic feet of space keeping all the rows of seats occupied, folding the third row can stretch it to 55.5 cubic feet and if you need more space, you can drop down the seats of the second row as well to get a sprawling 96.8 cubic feet to load your bulky items. Hence we can say that utility is the calling car of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas.
Trims and Features
The 2020 edition of the Volkswagen Atlas comes in the flavors of S, SE, and SEL in which each of the trim models offer configuration options like V6, AWD, w/ Technology, w/ R-Line, and Premium. The level of luxury and creature comfort keeps increasing in proportion with the price tags.
Tech Support for Convenience
For 2020, VW has upgraded its flagship crossover model with a new infotainment software, that is integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Its standard equipment also counts a fat package of advanced collision-avoidance safety techs that earned this crossover model good marks in all the safety tests conducted by the federal and other independent organizations.
All the trim levels as mentioned above can either be configured with a turbo-4 or a V-6 engine. The base model cranks 235-hp from the turbo-4 engine that comes only as front-wheel drive. So, it is not unusual to find most of the buyers to be keen on the 276-horsepower making V-6 one because VW offers six-cylinder power capacity to power all the models that come configured as all-wheel drives.
The Volkswagen dealer near Santa Cruz said that the buyers were waiting for a hybrid option when most of the other prominent brands are offering one. But the staff there were anticipating that it would unnecessarily hike up the price to an already expensive line of trim configurations. When asked for the best buy trim package of the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas, they recommended an Atlas SE model with V-6 engine and to configure it with all-wheel drive. They assured that it will also pay back plenty of space for every occupant.
