Utility vehicles are beginning to outnumber sedans and other small cars throughout the nation, but especially here in the Tampa Bay FL area. There are plenty of options to choose from – in all different shapes and sizes – when shopping for a utility vehicle, and the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas is certainly among the best of them. The three-row midsize crossover is the largest option the brand has to offer, providing even more space but, as the flagship option, the very best in features and technology.
Since we just talked about it, let’s start by taking a look at how much space the Atlas has to offer. With seating for up to seven, you and your passengers will have up to 153.7 cubic feet of space to stretch out and get comfortable in. Even with somebody sat in each one of those spots, you’ll still have an impressive 20.6 cubic feet of space to fill with whatever cargo you and your crew need to bring along with you, whether it be luggage, sporting equipment, or just some groceries. Fold the rear seats flat to increase that space to 55.5 cu. ft., or both rows of seats for a maximum of 96.8 cu. ft.
The powertrain is another important aspect of any vehicle, especially one like this. The Atlas is powered by either a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine or a 3.6L VR6. The former, which is the standard engine, is capable of generating 235 horsepower alongside 258 pound-feet of torque while the latter improves those numbers to 276 hp and 266 lb-ft. of torque.
Of course, the Atlas is also packed with all kinds of great content inside and out that really proves why it’s the flagship crossover utility vehicle. This includes things like the available Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, which transforms the entire instrument cluster into a high-resolution digital display, which you can even set to display a full-screen navigation view, making watching the GPS easier than ever.
