2019 Volkswagen Atlas

2019 Volkswagen Atlas

The 2019 model year is the second for the Volkswagen Atlas, which is one of the newer midsize SUVs in the market. It is the first three-row vehicle from German automaker Volkswagen, as well as its largest. For this year, the trim levels are streamlined to comprise S, SE, SEL, and SEL Premium remain. Plus, the SE and SEL offer the option of getting racing-inspired “R-Line” bumpers and badging.


Two engines are available: a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder (I4) that produces 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque and a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. The S runs on the I4 while the other three trims are powered by the V6. Both engines come with start-stop technology to eliminate engine idling and consequently boost the SUV’s fuel efficiency. Go with the I4, however, to maximize fuel efficiency at 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Each engine is hitched to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Although front-wheel drive is standard, you can go with Volkswagen’s 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system instead for better all-weather driving performance.

This Size Fits All


As a three-row vehicle, the Atlas provides passenger volume measured at 153.7 cubic feet and standard cargo space measured at 53.5 cubic feet. The cargo space can be expanded to 96.8 cubic feet by folding down the rear seats. For comfort and convenience, the 2019 Atlas gets features such as cruise control, dual-zone manual climate control, Bluetooth wireless connectivity for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect for accessing your smartphone apps, voice recognition technology, a garage-door opener, a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio, six-speaker audio, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen. 

Upgrading in trim increases your chances of getting additions or enhancements such as leather or leatherette upholstery, front-seat heating and power adjustability, driver-side memory and power lumbar support, a power panoramic sunroof, three-zone automatic climate control, a single-disc CD player, two USB ports for playing media from your smartphones and another two for charging them, a navigation system with trial subscriptions to SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link, 12-speaker Fender Premium audio and a 8-inch color touchscreen.


For safety, the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas has features such as a rearview camera, electronic vehicle stability control with rollover sensors, all-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake override, a crash response system, engine and hydraulic brake assist, and six airbags (two front impact airbags, two front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and two roof-mounted side curtain airbags). Options or upper-level trim enhancements usually involve driver-assistance technologies such as blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian monitoring, and lane departure warning. In addition, a surround-view camera will be available to replace the rear view for a 360-degree view.
