One of the most popular models here in the area is without a doubt the three-row midsize crossover, the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas. We highlighted some of what’s new and different in the vehicle earlier this week, but now we wanted to dive more specifically into some of the vehicle’s specs & features. So, we thought we’d start by looking at a couple of the most important aspects of any crossover utility vehicle: cargo capacity and safety.

How big is the VW Atlas cargo bay?
Behind the third row of seats, the VW atlas can accommodate up to 20.6 cubic feet of your cargo. That’s quite a bit larger than most sedan and coupe trunks and even a lot of crossovers. What’s even more impressive is that dropping the second- and third-row seats flat opens up a total of 96.8 cu. ft. for those trips when you need to bring even more along with you on the road.
Which safety features are standard?
The Volkswagen Atlas is packed full of safety-conscientious features and design cues. The vehicle’s architecture was designed with crumple zones and a safety cage to absorb and deflect as much damage from inhabitants of the vehicle as possible in the event of a collision, while the intelligent Crash Response System automatically does things like turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors and activate hazards in the event of your airbags deploying.
Other standard safety features include things like the rearview camera system, Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, a total of seven different stability-enhancing programs and more.
Which Drive Assistance technologies are available?
The 2020 Atlas has a host of driver-assistive technologies available at different trim levels. These include Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor, Light Assist, Lane Assist, Area View, Park Assist, Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking, Front Assist and Rear Traffic Alert.
