2018 Volkswagen Atlas. Atlas will hit the galleries with a distinct look that will stand out on a lot of faux while maintaining some brand signature signs. The latter will include vertical grille bars and LED-winded headlights. Other than these two qualities, Atlas will be cut from its own cloth with chunky shoulders, wide hood, upright nose.
Atlas is mounted on the same flexible golf supporting chassis as a large mid-sized SUV that fills a large gap in the Volkswagen portfolio. Not since the Rotan, a Dodge Grand Caravan that has been refurbished that last faux sold in 2013 – there were Volkswagen with more than five seat belts. Buyers were forced to look elsewhere for their family transportation needs.
It is fitting that the all-new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas takes its name from the Greek god charged with keeping the sky from falling on humans. Under the highly publicized diesel emissions scandal, Fu needs an emotional win. Although the consumer media and Kervofel, the sales of the brand people are actually so far in 2017, but this is largely due to the arrival of Altrac Golf, a boom that can be wizzle. Here is the need for Atlas to support the brand.

The total length is within an inch of the Ford Explorer and Nissan Pathfinder, but VW has a longer wheelbase and advantage of an excellent footprint. Seven passengers, or six if buyers choose late chairs availability of the second row captain, have 153 cubic feet of space to share.
This corresponds to the size and concrete of the Honda Belot interior that was won by the award-winning Mazda S-9, although it is shy of the Explorer 155. With heroes in all seats, the Atlas has 21 cubic feet of cargo space. While most of the competitors are teenagers. Fortunately, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas does not feel as great as it is.

When switching between them, the most obvious difference is the steering in the sport mode, which reaches the intensity.
However, we did not find the sports driving too heavy on our way through the Texas Hill Country winding trails, and there was no wandering in the center. The brake feel, something that is often overlooked in this class, is sturdy, too, with an immediate pedal response and an intuitive correlation between the voltage and the power stop. The ride breathes with a butter condition on standard 18-inch wheels.

The front seats were built for long-distance comfort, with wide thigh, lumbar, and shoulder support. The 60/40 collapsible slats are retractable and rear, and they fold forward, even with a child seat installed to allow access to the third row. Once in a while, the adults find plenty of room and a suitable bench height. The rear row only lacks the height, so the longer passengers should cool down a bit.
