VW Atlas Review
A full-size SUV isn’t the car for everybody; but, if a full-size SUV is the car for you, then nothing else will do the job. That’s why our team here at Norm Reeves Volkswagen Superstore Irvine wrote this 2018 VW Atlas review for drivers in Newport Beach, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Mission Viejo. It does the job.
Keep reading to learn more about this impressive vehicle’s performance, dimensions, and style.
VW Atlas Specs
Right off the bat, the 2018 VW Atlas lets you choose between two engine options...
- Standard 2.0L turbocharged engine: 235 horsepower (hp) and 256 lb-ft of torque (with premium fuel)
- Available 3.6L V6 engine: 276 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque (with premium fuel, as well)
Yet, its engines are merely the beginning. Where do you want to go? The beach? The forest? The desert? The mountains? California is rich with an abundance of outdoor opportunities, and the Atlas lets you explore them all. 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive lets you choose between four different all-wheel drive modes, depending on the road conditions and weather: Dry, Rainy, Snowy, and Rough. Amazing!
Then, there’s its 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity (when properly equipped). Finally, you have muscles that allow you to bring whatever you need for the weekend: Kayaks, trailer, jet skis, ATVS, etc.
VW Atlas Interior Dimensions
Your hauling capacity won’t be limited to just what you tow, though. If you fold down the second and third rows, you’ll create 96.8 cubic feet of cargo space in your Atlas. You might need to buy more stuff!
Or, you can keep the seats up and transport as many as seven people (including the driver). Plus, with some optional USB ports and up to 17 cupholders for beverages, even long trips will seem pleasantly short.
Road & Track writes, “The second row’s folding system works even with child seats installed, granting easy access to the third [row].” So, not only is the 2018 Atlas spacious, but it’s easy to navigate, too.
2018 VW Atlas: A Touch of Style…
Reflex Silver Metallic. Pure White. Platinum Gray Metallic. Deep Black Pearl. Tourmaline Blue Metallic. Kurkuma Yellow Metallic. Fortana Red Metallic. With so many different exterior paint jobs to choose from, it’ll be amazing if you can come to a decision before next year’s model comes out. However, it’s important to remember that we don’t carry all styles at all times. Check out our inventory today!
However, when it comes to style, color isn’t the only thing that the VW Atlas has going for it. This full-size SUV is as muscular as a Greek Titan (such as, Atlas, perhaps...). Every contour is well-defined, and its front hood is an imposing force of nature. Oh, yeah, and it’s got available 20-inch alloy wheels, too.
