2021 Volkswagen Atlas Review


A new look for a new decade.

The Atlas offers strong, sophisticated design that knows how to make an entrance, and exit.

Style that speaks for itself.

Modern interior styling and a spacious cabin gives the inside of the Atlas a premium, comfortable vibe.

Go ahead, spread out.

Available V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces, Climatronic® 3-zone automatic climate control, and roomy 2nd and 3rd row seating help make every ride in the Atlas a comfortable one.


Technology driven.

Help keep things moving with keyless access and wireless charging for compatible devices, just two of the many available features in the 2021 Atlas.

Touchscreen navigation system

Besides looking great, the sleek glass on the available touchscreen navigation system helps make the map more prominent, while dynamic route guidance can assist you with turn-by-turn information.

Customize your view.

The available display is a true breakthrough. Instead of the traditional instrument cluster, information can be displayed digitally in high resolution. Plus, you can customize what’s displayed: from speed, travel time to route guidance, assistance systems, and elevation.

Fender® Premium Audio System

Enjoy your favorite music with the available 480-watt, 12-channel amp Fender® Premium Audio System. The Atlas also offers third-row speakers that bring enhanced sound to all three rows.

Peace of mind for the road ahead.

Take your apps for a ride.

Packed with power, and so much more.

Under the hood, a 3.6L V6 engine with 276 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque or a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with 235 hp (achieved with premium fuel) and 258 lb-ft of torque bring power to every drive.

Power when you need it. Or just when you want it.

Having eight speeds can help improve efficiency and performance. In Tiptronic® mode, you can shift manually and take control of your driving experience. And when properly equipped, the Atlas has enough power to tow a trailer.

4MOTION® with Active Control

With the turn of a dial, you can switch between four different available all-wheel-drive modes to the one that fits your current driving situation.
-Snow Mode
-On-Road Mode
-Off-Road Mode
-Off-Road Custom Mode


A lot goes in before you do.

Safety is a core value to us. And while we can’t predict everything you might encounter, we can and do spend long hours trying to help you prepare for it.

Stay focused.

Benefit from the view of a wide lens when you want it. It can help you see obstacles when backing up, a feature so helpful you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it.

We’re rigid about safety.

Front and rear crumple zones help absorb crash energy, while a rigid safety cage helps distribute forces away from the driver and passengers.

Intelligent by design.

In the event of a collision that deploys the airbags, the ICRS can turn off the fuel pump, unlock the doors, and activate the hazard lights. It helps react if you might not be able to.

We think ahead.

Not every collision brings a car to stop. That’s why our vehicles include the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. It can also help slow the vehicle down after a collision, helping reduce the chance of any additional impacts.

Safety. Engineered from the ground up.

Monitoring and maintaining proper air pressure in your tires helps with efficiency and safety. The TPMS helps alert you to a loss of tire pressure so you know when to add air.

Equipped for peace of mind.

From Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution (EBD), which helps maintain appropriate stopping power during a hard-braking situation, to Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which can adjust engine throttle and apply corrective forces to the wheels that need them most, your vehicle is equipped with a total of six stability-enhancing systems.
