Indeed, the new Atlas offers an imposing and massive style but is still elegant and refined. Once inside, one realizes that there is plenty of space and a sophisticated and luxurious interior. Under the hood, two engines are available and able to meet all the needs of consumers.

There is no doubt, there are many things to like about the new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas.

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is offered with a choice of two engines. The first is a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder that develops 235 horsepower. This engine propels the entry-level model and offers a very reasonable fuel economy for a vehicle of this size in addition to being able to tow up to 909 pounds.

The second engine is a 3.6-litre V6 producing 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. This engine is more powerful and its fuel consumption remains reasonable.
