VW refreshes the 2021 Atlas with new front and also back fascias that raise the SUV’s overall size by practically 3 inches. A lot more eye-catching three-bar grille beautifies the front end, as do revised headlights that currently include standard LED components.

Inside, you’ll find a new guiding wheel, upgraded stitching on the seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen (on SE and SEL models), and also the current iteration of VW’s Car-Net smart device application. The four-cylinder Atlas is currently offered with a four-wheel-drive for the first time.

Interior Styling & Available Features

Family-friendly indoor space, an uncomplicated control format, and also too many cupholders make the Atlas a useful selection, also to name a few highly functional opponents. And also, the 3rd row of seats that can comfortably fit full-size grownups is a definite win. The interior design of the Atlas is uncomplicated and also practical– excellent for family members yet much less so for design wizards.

The cabin must fit almost anything an SUV family member can toss at it, and also there are a lot of attentively positioned storage spaces to stash tiny items. In our travel luggage screening, the Atlas excited us by suitable four carry-on traveling bags behind the third row and also 38 behind the initial, like the huge Honda Pilot.

No matter which cut you pick, the Atlas comes well linked and ready to captivate. The touchscreen interface is user-friendly as well as around as receptive as a typical smartphone. Base S designs feature a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and also Android Vehicle capability, a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth phone as well as an audio connection, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and also a USB port. Update to the SE or SEL versions and the infomercial display screen expands to 8.0 inches, 3 extra USB ports grow from the center console, and also SiriusXM satellite radio and also two even more speakers sign up with the mix.

Engine Options & Performance

In terms of Engine, This 2021 Volkswagen Atlas powered by a 235-hp four-cylinder or a 276-hp V-6. Both pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission and also either front- or all-wheel drive. The V-6 really feels as well as appears refined, transmitting nary a shudder right into the cabin. Though the last four-cylinder and V-6 designs we evaluated had average velocity, out when traveling, they seldom really felt underpowered. While it’s not as much fun to drive as the Mazda CX-9, the Atlas responds obediently to guiding inputs and never ever really feels awkward. It is composed of the freeway and also active in the city. The trip is smooth, and all but the harshest holes are soaked up.
