What the media is saying about the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

The Volkswagen Atlas arrived on the market this year, and quickly it was praised by the media that quickly fell in love with the Atlas’ interior space, its versatility, its design, its host of features and of course its German-engineered performance.

It’s therefore not surprising that the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas has garnered an impressive array of positive reviews from some of North America’s most respectable automotive media outlets.

Here are just a few examples of recent 2018 Volkswagen Atlas reviews.

All three rows of the Atlas offer better-than-average interior room. The second row slides fore and aft as in most competitors, but the Atlas joins only the Pathfinder in allowing a child seat to remain in the second row when it is slid forward for access to the rearmost seats. And that third row is reasonably roomy, providing what may be the most capacious accommodations in its class. – The Car Connection


VW’s all-new three-row crossover with room for seven is here—and it was worth the wait. Two adults fit comfortably in the third row, even with luggage stored behind them. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard; 12-speaker Fender audio is optional. The base model has a 235-hp turbo four with front-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is available if you choose the 276-hp V-6. Safety tech includes forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning with steering assist – Car and Driver


The Atlas represents a new start for Volkswagen in the mid-size utility class, in more ways than one. Not only is it larger than the Touareg, but VW has also priced it to compete directly with vehicles like the Explorer. Pricing starts at $35,690, while my top-end Execline tester’s starting tag of $52,540 is only a couple thousand dollars more than the Touareg’s price of entry. There’s a lot more SUV here for less money – AutoTrader
