2018 Volkswagen Atlas
2018 Volkswagen Atlas Montgomery AL
The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas launches a new chapter in the company’s American history—the Atlas is larger than any other Volkswagen on sale in the U.S. and it expected to stack-up well against the competition in its class. The Atlas offers spacious, comfortable seating for seven with easy third-row access thanks to a lever that folds the second-row seats and slides them forward. With the rear seats folded down, the Atlas offers up to 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space.
The Atlas’ exterior features classic proportions and clean lines to convey a sense of timelessness and precision with a stylish grille, signature LED lights, and sporty profile. The Atlas offers two engine options: a 238-hp 2.0L turbocharged and direct-injection TSI four-cylinder or a 280-hp 3.6L VR6. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed transmission. The Atlas can be configured with FWD or 4MOTION AWD with the Driving Mode Selection feature for conquering different terrains.
2018 Volkswagen Atlas Technology and Driver Assistance
The 2018 Atlas is packed with innovative technology to keep both drivers and passengers connected and entertained on the road. The available 12.3” Active Information Display displays key trip information like current speed, estimated fuel consumption, Driver Assistance Settings, and navigation display. An available 8” infotainment screen displays audio, VW Car-Net connected vehicle services, and smartphone platforms like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink.
The 2018 Atlas also offers available driver assistance features at an affordable price that have previously been reserved for premium SUVs, making it a strong competitor in its class. The Atlas is also the only vehicle in its class to offer the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. The system prevents further collisions from occurring after the initial impact by applying the brakes when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, which helps reduce the chance of additional damage to both the vehicle and its occupants. The Atlas offers nine driver assistance features in total, which includes the following:
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert
- Pedestrian Monitoring
- Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist)
- Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist)
- Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist)
- Automatic Post-Collision Braking System
