2019 Volkswagen Atlas Review
It’s the car that’s ready for everything family life throws at you. It’s the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas, an SUV you’ll find right here at Speedcraft Volkswagen.
For years, we’ve helped Warwick, Providence, and Coventry drivers enjoy the Volkswagen they’re driving. Now, with newer models like the VW Atlas popping up in recent years, we’re doing it with SUVs. In this review, we’re taking an inside look at everything this latest Volkswagen SUV has to offer drivers.
VW Atlas Performance
The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged engine sets out to prove that a performance engine and a family SUV can be one in the same. This engine can deliver up to 235 horsepower, great for darting across the city and taking on the highway, too. This engine also makes 258 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re searching for a bit more power, then you’ll want to consider the available V6 engine. This 6-cylinder behemoth gives you more power under the hood, with this 276-horsepower engine delivering 266 lb-ft of torque.
When it’s properly equipped, the VW Atlas is able to tow up to 5,000 pounds. That means if you have a midsize trailer or boat you don’t want to leave behind, you’ll be able to bring it along.
Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, and feature Tiptronic® and Sport mode technology. With the Tiptronic® mode, shifts can be completed manually, providing you a more intuitive driving experience.
An Interior the Entire Family Will Love
Every one of the three rows inside this SUV is comfortable, ready for kids, adults, or a combination of both. Of course, there’s plenty of room for all those things you need to bring along for every ride, too.
The standard 60/40 split-folding second-row seats offer flexibility, while the split-folding 50/50 third-row seats come standard, too. The available heated and ventilated front seats keep the driver and front passenger happy regardless of the outside temperature.
Head behind the third row, and see just how cavernous the cargo area is. You’ll have almost 21 cu. ft. of space, enough for groceries, luggage, or your kids’ backpacks and school supplies. With the second and third rows folded, things expand to almost 97 cu. ft. of cargo space.
Safety Never Takes a Day Off
Peace of mind is important, particularly when it comes to the car you’re driving. The 2019 VW Atlas carries a range of safety features, like a standard rear view camera system with a wide lens helping you see obstacles when backing up.
The Intelligent Crash Response System is able to react if there’s a collision that has activated the airbags. The fuel pump will shut off, doors will unlock, and hazard lights will be activated to signal for help.
Keep in mind that not every crash brings a car to a stop. Every Volkswagen comes with the Automotive Post-Collision Braking System. It can help slow your car down following a collision, reducing the chances of further impact.
